Have you noticed how around Valentine’s Day all nail art looks are some shade of pink? Yeah, me too. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pink nail polish as much as the next girl, I just don’t feel like adding to the pile myself, which is why I’ve gone in another direction for a look that is definitely V-day appropriate, but not as traditional.
This one is a little more festive than what I was going for in terms of an everyday look, but I think it would look awesome for a party or something. I DID rock this one to work, so it all depends on your desired level of glam for the day, I suppose.
I did the stripes by applying striping tape over the purple and then sponging the gold glitter on near the cuticle area.
I’m a nail polish hoarder. I keep all the ones I’m given, and I buy too many myself. After having bought some in November/December and receiving some for my birthday and christmas, I didn’t really have any space left in the drawer I keep them in, so I decided it was time to declutter and get rid of some.

Hey guys – I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s Eve. I had an exam to take care of this past week, but now I’m back with the first manicure of 2017.

But anyway, I got an orange polish for christmas, and I bought one myself back in november, and seeing all the oranges together inspired me to do this gradient.
Merry christmas everyone! May you all have a wonderful time with your friends and family!
Throughout the month of December, I’ve made 19 christmas nail art designs – here, you can see them all again if you missed any, and perhaps this will give some inspiration to those of you who still needs the perfect christmas manicure.
