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!

Challenge Your Nail Art - Christmas Ornaments | The Rite of AgingI 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.
