Holiday nail art - Cardinal on a snow covered bough

Monday, December 9, 2013

Did you know if you aren't in the holiday spirit that creating some holiday nail art can help? That a little bit of festive polish and paint can prime you right into singing carols. It's a good thing no one can hear me right now! Fa la la la la la la la la.

I was visiting a friend and saw a wooden plaque hanging on her wall. The Cardinal practically jumped off its snowy perch and screamed at me to try and recreate him. So I did! Here's the wall hanging that gave me my inspiration.


And here's the attempt at recreating it.

I started off with a base coat of Zoya Natty. There is just something about that deep dusty blue that I just love.

Then I used Zoya Breezi and Blu in a gradient that faded out from the center. For the actual tree branches, snow and the Cardinal I used acrylic paint.

I love this mani. I haven't had much time to do nail art lately and it is something I simply love to do. 

These polishes were previously sent to me for review. All opinions are my own. Please note computer monitors may vary in color display.
