Colorful Holiday Nails

Hey Everyone! Hopefully all of you wonderful readers are having a lovely weekend. Luckily my flu is finally going away, which I'm grateful for. Besides me feeling okay, I'm actually excited to share my next post. Today I have for you some holiday theme nails I did for China Glazes Nail Art Contest their having. 
 I first read about it on their instagram and thought why not! Since were in the season, I've been collecting loads of Christmas themed wallpapers for nail art ideas. I wanted to do something a little different this year. When I saw this cellphone wallpaper I just feel in love. So here are the beauties: 
It just shows Christmas doesn't have to be white, green or red! It could be anything you want it to be. So when I found this cellphone wallpaper, I just knew I had to use it. Luckily for the contest I had most of the colors on hand. 
For the base, I applied two coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff. Which is such a perfect ivory shade for this design. Then I've decided not to go too much on the design, since there was soo many little details too use. So I picked four fingers to be the ornaments and my ringer finger for the birds.
For each of the ornaments, I drew them with a nail art brush, using China Glaze Sun of a Peach, For Audrey, Bottoms Up and Foie Gras. I then added smaller details on the ornaments and birds with a dotting tools, using Essie's Blanc and China Glaze Foie Gras. I then sealed the design with  Duri- Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat, that's it!

 Overall I'm really happy how these turned and loving how the colors look all together. I wasn't sure at first with the orange ornament. Either way they all came out great. I will soon write a short post, for the link to vote for these nails! Would love for your support! :)

Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
