Holiday Memories – Vote for me!!

This is my final entry for the 2013 Holiday Nail Art Challenge hosted by Nail Polish Canada. The nail art was inspired by the movie “A Charlie Brown Christmas” – a short movie that is played in Canada and the US pretty regularly around the holiday season, and is almost constantly referenced to as an all time favourite Christmas movie.

 

I think that the idea of looking past the commercialization of our holidays and trying to discover or, for some re-discover the meaning of Christmas to them is a meaningful message to pass on. For some people, Christmas may hold significant religious meaning, while for others, it is purely a holiday off from work and the daily grind. It is best to be respectful of others beliefs and this is a great time to re-connect with old friends and say hello by sending a card.

 

My holiday memories are always filled with happiness – I have fond memories of exchanging gifts with friends and family, getting excited about snow on Christmas Day and spending time with loved ones. Tell me about your holiday memories! I’d love to know what you hold special at this time of year.

 

For my manicure, I started with a base of white and then sponged on Wet n’ Wild I need a Refresh-Mint. Next, I drew Snoopy, Woodstock, the sad Christmas tree from the movie, Charlie Brown and a holly using a variety of nail polishes from Zoya, Butter London, OPI and Nicole by OPI. Finally, I topped some fingers off with my new Revlon Heavenly top coat, and other fingers got a layer of OPI SugarPlum Faries *this is not a good top coat for nail art, because the holographic glitter is suspended in a tinted base!*

這個指甲藝術設計是以從一個可愛的電影! 我記得常常會打開電視讓後看到 “A Charlie Brown Christmas” 在電視播放。 在美國和加拿大,這部電影之重要性是非常深刻和有意義的,因為它提醒我們聖誕節不只是購買和接受禮物。

這部電影提醒大家要想想十二月二十五號對我們的意義:我們可以有宗教意義的聖誕節,或者只是享受以與朋友和家人共度的時間。

Non Dominant Hand Nail Art: Angry Birds during Christmas

Non Dominant Hand Nail Art: Angry Birds during a White Christmas

It has definitely been a while since I have written in this blog!I am back with a vengeance because I have caught the nailart bug – if you have been following my Instagram account you will notice A LOT of nail art (and the occasional dog photo interspersed in my pictures).Today, I wanted to share with you my Angry Birds + Christmas + Snow nail art design. This is the first official appearance of my “Cinderella Hand”!I am right handed, and my left hand desperately lacks the fine motor skills and dexterity for drawing on such a tiny canvas using nail polish. So, I used a toothpick to draw the birds onto a Ziplock bag. I let the designs dry overnight and then peeled each bird off the bag and placed it onto my nails. I can show you a tutorial if anyone is interested in seeing that process in action (or if you got confused by my explanation).

I initially started out with just the birds on different coloured backgrounds, but because I attended a “friendsgiving” dinner and washed almost all of the dishes we used during the cooking/preparation process, my nails had some major tip wear. I decided to add some red santa hats and snow!

I have entered this design into the 2013 Holiday Nail Art Challenge hosted by

www.nailpolishcanada.com

You can vote for me for the Week 1 Challenge, which has many talented nail bloggers showcasing designs that they drew for the Snow Theme.

不好意思! 我一段時間沒有公佈在這個博客上…希望你們可以原諒我!我最近生病了- 這是一個非常可怕的病,因為我浪費了很多時間支持這一個問題!bù hǎo yì si! wǒ yī duàn shí jiān méi yǒu gōng bù zài zhè ge bó kè shàng… xī wàng nǐ men kě yǐ yuán liàng wǒ! wǒ zuì jìn shēng bìng le – zhè shì yī gè fēi cháng kě pà de bìng, yīn wèi wǒ làng fèi le hěn duō shí jiān zhī chí zhè yī ge wèn tí!你有猜到我的病是什麼嗎?我不停的畫美甲design在我的指甲上!如果你們正在使用Instagram, 快加入我的帳戶:nǐ yǒu cāi dào wǒ de bìng shì shén me ma? wǒ bù tíng de huà měi jiǎ design zài wǒ de zhǐ jiǎ shàng! rú guǒ nǐ men zhèng zài shǐ yòng Instagram, kuài jiā rù wǒ de zhàng hù:www.instagram.com/themisspw

今天,我想與大家分享我最近的設計之一… 憤怒鳥 + 聖誕節 + 下雪! 我慣用手是我的右手, 但是我讓我的非慣用手為榜樣因為我用一個簡單的方法來畫出憤怒鳥的圖案。我下次可以示範給大家看!
