Have a holly jolly Christmas – it’s the best time of the year

My first proper Christmas mani of the year! Inspired by @polishandbeyond on instagram. Check out her account so many lush designs!
For this I used; OPI – Natural base, Sinful colors – Snow me white, ELF – Smoking hot, Acrylic paint for the green leaves, OPI – Liquid sand and Essie – Set in stones for the accent nail. Rituals for the top coat. 
I love the simplicity of this design and the accent nail. However, the holly leaves were the hardest nail painting I’ve ever done! As simple as it looks – it took me longer than expected. But as always – worth while!
Definitely room for improvement in the acrylic paint area but I love using it, it’s so easy to remove mistakes with water, which is always a bonus. I also need a new detail brush, let me know of any recommendations of brands. 
Many many more christmas mani’s to come – it’s only November!
I cannot wait to open day 1 of the ciaté mini mani month advent calendar, I’m going to try swatch every one of the polishes! 
Happy Saturday everyone.
