Christmas Nails: Christmas Trees

Happy Saturday loves!

I am still under the weather but determind to not let it stop me from any of my exciting Christmas plans. Last night I went out for a Christmas meal with a group of girl friends and we exchanged Secret Santa gifts. I was a very lucky girl and got two goody bags full of lovely gifts such as owl salt and pepper shakers, 6 handmade owl wine charms, an owl necklace (can you spot the theme!) and five lovely colour OPI crackle polishes to use for jewellery making. Thank you Jamie :-)

On the night I wore a very sparkly deep red dress that was covered in sequins, Here are the nails I designed to compliment...

I started with Barry M Burgundy on all nails. Coincidentally I showed you this polish for the first time yesterday and although a few weeks have elapsed between the two manicures I could not resist reaching for it again already :-).

Using Barry M Gold Foil I stamped this cute little abstract style Christmas Tree print from plate GA 27.

In the pictures below you can see my super sparkly sequined dress in the background. Doesn't this lovely Barry M polish match perfectly?

I love any excuse to get dressed up and design matching nails but at this time of year its so much more fun as you can really go to town with sparkles and sequins!

I hope you all have wonderful evenings - Mr LiPP and I are off to my in-laws for a family Christmas party!
