I had a couple of ideas for this prompt but none of them panned out properly. I am not too incredibly pleased with this manicure just because it was not my first choice. That being said, I really like the base!
I hope you like it, too!
I started with 3 coats of Zoya Suvi for good measure. I probably could have gotten away with 2 coats!
I achieved the base color by water-marbling without the marble Essie No Place like Chrome and layering Serum No. 5 Happy Special Day! on top. I saw this technique done on a very pretty manicure on Instagram but now I cannot remember whose it was!! (EDIT: Thank you, PINTEREST! I pinned the exact manicure onto one of my boards. Check out this gorgeous snow forest manicure at @nailsbyjema’s Instagram)
I used Born Pretty Store Christmas decals on my index and ring fingers.

Oh I really like this one and that glitter is gorgeous :O
Thanks Kairi!! 🙂 Serum’s Happy Special Day is one of my favorite all time glitters. It looks totally different every time you put it on! It’s super fun!

I’m scouring your blog looking for you wearing “Happy Special Day”! You weren’t kidding when you said this was your all time favorite!! So far this design is my favorite…but I’m not done yet! ❤
Heh, thanks Karoyln!! I seriously love this glitter. It doesn’t come out to play all that often as I don’t like glitter in general but this is definitely my most used!
