All I want For Christmas

All I want for Christmas is some more Butter London polishes!!! JK but I do love them! Everyone I have tried has gone on so nice. Thank goodness Coterie occasionally puts them on sale or I would never be able to afford them. Hope everyone is starting to feel the Holiday Spirit. I know I am, and I needed a manicure to prove it!

For this manicure I used three coats of Butter's Saucy Jack on all my fingers except my ring and attached a silver rhinestone to the top center. 

On my ring finger I have 3 coats of OPI's I Don't Give a Rotterdam. I really loved this shimmery gray/blue. Then I used skinny red striping tape going both horizontally and vertically to look like ribbon on a present. Then I used 3 red rhinestones to recreate berries. I hand painted the leaves using OPI's Skip the Gift Wrap as the final touch. What do you guys think Christmasy enough? After seeing how cute my ring finger turned out I kind of wished I did them all that way!

A Christmas French

Hi bloggers! I know it has been a super long time since my last post but I swear the holidays got here and I just don't know what happened to time. I think it just evaporated. I'm sure it didn't help that I decided to pick up a Holiday job at Sephora in JCP and a couple of math tutoring jobs. Thank goodness I did because the extra money has been great this Holiday. The extra discount at JCP and Sephora products doesn't hurt either :)

Now on to the manicure. I owed my boyfriend's sister Kelly for a fabulous favor she did for me so in return I did her gel nails and a beautiful Christmas French. I loved how it turned out.

For this manicure I used a brand new Holiday OPI, that I got free from Ulta with a purchase of 2 other OPI polishes. It's called Skip the Gift Wrap. I used this for the french tip and the leaves. Then I used Silver striping tape I got for mere cents off of EBAY. Then the berries were just three red rhinestones. Hope you like them! They definitely put me in more of a Christmas mood!
