NAILS | Christmas Tree Puzzle Nail Art #ManiMonday

Where the heck did last week go and HOW is it now the last week until Christmas?! I mean, sweet baby Jesus where is the time going? I had these grandiose plans to fill all of last week with holiday goodies and then my hours at work got REALLY long and I was getting home super late. I also had my staff Christmas party on Friday followed by another event on Saturday which leads me to now. It's 1am and I have just finished by Mani Monday and I cannot seem to fall asleep!

I had yet to do a slightly more challenging set of holiday nails and this Christmas tree puzzle nail idea came to me in the shower 2 weeks ago and though I wasn't sure how I would space out the tree across the nails, I think it turned out alright and fun-looking!

I started off with two coats of my new favourite white, OPI - Non-Stop White*, and then sketched out the tree with green acrylic paint. Looking at the photos, I probably should have gone over some of the areas as acrylic paint needs a number of layers to get fully opaque.

For the ornaments, I dotted on Essie - Party on a Platform*, Essie - Getting Groovy* and CND Creative Play - Foilded Again*. I hand-drew the presents under the tree with more acrylic paint and didn't know what to do on my pinky nail other than "ho, ho, ho". I added a crystal star gem on the top of the tree, securing it with top coat, and then top coated everything with a glossy top coat.

I am looking forward to the 25th so that I can SLEEP in and putter around in my PJs! How is your week looking with less than a week until Christmas?
