Challenge Your Nail Art: Christmas Lights

Hello Readers!

Today's post is for the Challenge Your Nail Art group on Facebook, and the prompt is "Christmas lights!"

When I planning this mani, I thought it would be fun to do a "zoom-out" nail where I give the lights some context. In my case, my lights are on this little snowy house. I also considered putting them on a Christmas tree, but I didn't really like any of the options I had for Christmas trees to pair with these lights, so I went with the house. 

Here is a quick look at the polishes used in this mani:

I started off with two coats of the Essie "Going Guru", except on my ring finger which has Revlon Parfumarie's "Tropical Rain" for a base. Next I stamped from the Bundle Monster Christmas typography plate onto all my green nails:

I created a decal to place across the nails using this Bundle Monster plate:

I actually only stamped the lights image twice, since I was placing them lengthwise, and cut each decal in half . I did add in some extra stamping of the pine needles because they were looking oddly "cut off" in some places on my nails.

On my ring, I painted a snow line on the lower half and place a decal of a house from this plate over that:

Then I added some little red dots to my house to represent the Christmas lights using a toothpick.


  1. Your nails look amazing. I love the glittery lights!

    1. Thank you! That red polish is so fun for Christmas because it has a lot of gold shimmer. :) I thought it would be fun for lights!
