Christmas sweater mani

Hey guys! Kinda sloppy mani for tonight.. I really need to invest in some new brushes and practice more. Though I'm sure I'll get all the practice I'll need when I start school next week.. eek.

Anyway, I've been seeing some christmas sweater/nordic inspired manis floating around, so I decided to give it a shot. The only thing I like are the little deer, honestly. Let's just chalk this up to a learning experience about how much I suck at and hate patterns, haha.

Sinful Colors, Black on Black, Snow Me White
Pure Ice, French Kiss
China Glaze, Phat Santa
Zoya, Trixie, Ivanka
Nicole by OPI, My Lifesaver
Sally Hansen, Blue Me Away, Going Green
Barielle, Elle's Spell
Orly, little mini bottle of champagne foil that I can't recall the name of

I picked my first Nails Inc polishes at Sephora the other day.. Fitzroy and Connaught Square. They're both super sparkly! They eat topcoat like crazy, though. I also picked up SOPI's Don't Be Eggnogious(omg that name, jesus OPI), which is super pretty. It's nice to have a layering glitter in such a cool coppery color. Looks great over teal and turquoise.

I also just discovered that I somehow got nail polish in my hair.. does this happen to anyone else? It's not even long!


  1. You don't like this? Are you kidding??? I'd like to see one you DO like! That's amazing! All the detail and the colors, and I can't imagine how long it took. You should be proud of it, honestly. I don't even usually like this kind of mani, and I LOVE it. :)

  2. I love love LOVE this!!! Amazing! I love the nordic/ski sweater look, and wow you did a fantastic job on this!! YAAAY!! :D

  3. I love hte style, but have been postponig try it, cause of all the work it will be.

    I love it. Its as clean as the people that use konad and BM plates, but is definetly more original.

    I haven't yet got nail polish in my hair, but my cell hone did get nail polish on it though xD

    Can I be an ass an ask about the tutorials you ask sugestions?

  4. These are so cute! Such a great idea, I will have to try it out myself :)

  5. What, are you crazy- this is perfect not sloppy! Love the idea and color selection! :)

  6. Wow, I love this! I don't think I'd ever have the patience for it, but it really looks amazing. It makes me want to go watch Lars and the Real Girl. :)

  7. Thank you, everyone! <3

    I'm sorry I haven't been able to do any of the tutorials.. my boyfriend took back his video camera and I haven't gotten it back yet. My own camera doesn't film well at all so I haven't been able to do anything.

  8. Seriously amazing! I am tempted to copy this idea, it is soooo funny. You did an amazing job, and only you would be critical of it, really it is fantastic!

  9. sloppy mani? my dear! you did a great job there! love your mani! wish you could do a tutorial for this one!

  10. I think it looks great! Love your ring finger :)

  11. This is amazingly well done right down to the little deer details. You should be proud!
