Nail Art Tutorial: Santa Claus Nails

Santa Claus Nail Art TutorialBack in 2011, I did Santa Nail Art where each nail featured The Big Man in Red’s suit. I really loved that design, and even though I wanted to wear it again, it was time for a challenge. (Click to see my step-by-step tutorial for the Santa Suit Nail Art!)

After seeing The Little Canvas’ cute nails with Kris Kringle’s face, I knew I had to try my hand at this design. Although mine didn’t turn out as well as neatly as hers, I had tons of fun painting this, and it was fun to bring my Santa Claus gang with me everywhere I went! (Thanks to The Little Canvas for the inspiration!)

Haha, I intended the Santas to be smirking or to at least look happy, but I guess my nail striper brush was a bit too thick and I was rushing a little. So, some of my Santas look like they’re being very sarcastic. Haha, can you spot which one drank too much of the spiked elves’ Christmas punch? :P

Hey, it would be neat to combine this and the santa-suit design in a single manicure. You could even paint Santa’s hat on one nail. That would allow you to paint a whole bunch of different designs.

China Glaze All Aboard Collection Press Release

China Glaze All Aboard CollectionAutumn is my favourite season because of the rich colours, explosion in fashion, new beauty products, pumpkin spice lattes, colours of the changing leaves, knitting projects, and pumpkin pies! (Plus Hallowe’en is my favourite holiday.)

So you can just imagine how excited I am about the China Glaze All Aboard Collection, which is their fall release, launching in September!

The shades are rich, and, as with many of China Glaze’s collections, this one is full of variety, so there’s something for everyone.

China Glaze Tail Me Something Swatches & Review

China Glaze Tail Me Something Swatches & ReviewChina Glaze Tail Me Something is described as a glistening light lavender, according to the press release about the China Glaze Sea Goddess Collection.

It’s spot on! This textured nail polish has so much glitz and glam, when you wear it, it catches the light and makes you think you’re wearing the nail-polish equivalent of jewelry!

As you know, I’m always happy to have textured nail polish on my nails because it’s one of the trends that I’ve been most excited about in a long time.

Would you wear this purple?

Peach Nail-Polish Comparison Swatches & Photos

Peach Nail Polish ComparisonIt’s already spring, but Old Man Winter is being rude and overstaying his welcome.

To coax winter into allowing the spring weather to arrive, I thought I’d do a Peach Nail-Polish Comparison post.

Don’t know about you, but whenever I see peach nail polish, I immediately think about the spring and summer!

Let’s see if a little colour therapy works!

China Glaze Sea Goddess Collection Press Release & Promo Pictures

China Glaze Sea Goddess CollectionHere’s something to get really excited about: the China Glaze Sea Goddess Collection is set to officially hit stores in February! (That’s just a stone’s throw away!)

I feel like the collection promo picture doesn’t do justice to the shades. But when you scroll down and see the individual bottle promo shots, those look really beautiful!

The 2 shades that really speak to me are Seahorsin’ Around (a vivid turquoise will always get my attention) and Wish on a Starfish (pink with gold is such a striking combination that I’m drawn to).

Of the 6 nail polishes, which China Glaze Sea Goddess Collection shades stand out the most to you?
