Decorations… Holiday Lights

decorations final

I have had pictures of this manicure on my computer for about a week now, and never got around to posting my second entry for the Second Annual Holiday Nail Art Challenge hosted by Nail Polish Canada.The theme this week is “Decorations” and I thought it would be appropriate to spell out the word “Lights” for the Christmas/holiday lights that people often hang onto their trees (and houses) at this time of the year. I also included a tree and some presents stacked up on my pinkie. For this manicure, I used:Green: Zoya LoganWhite: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in White Out

Red: OPI Dear Santa

Gold base: Stellnor Nail Lacquer in “MA05”

Gold accents: Revlon Creme Brulee

Black: OPI My Private Jet

For the lights, I used a variety of Zoya polishes.

What do you think of my nail art design? What presents do you want to see under your tree?

這個美甲藝術包括聖誕燈扭曲成“lights”的形狀,一棵聖誕樹,和一堆禮物。zhè ge měi jiǎ yì shù bāo kuò shèng dàn dēng niǔ qū chéng “lights” de xíng zhuàng, yī kē shèng dàn shù, hé yī duī lǐ wù.我使用的指甲油包括很多不一樣的品牌: Zoya, OPI, Sally Hansen, Revlon 和一個台灣找到的金色指甲油叫Stellnor(但是它的味道有點怪怪的!)wǒ shǐ yòng de zhǐ jiǎ yóu bāo kuò hěn duō bù yī yàng de pǐn pái: “Zoya, OPI, Sally Hansen, Revlon hé yī gè tái wān zhǎo dào de jīn sè zhǐ jiǎ yóu jiào Stellnor (dàn shì tā de wèi dào yǒu diǎn guài guài de!)

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!
