Christmas Challenge: Gifts/Presents

FINAL-Christmas-Challenge-smallSo I am a wee bit behind on the challenge, my apologies. I was actually rather uninspired for this challenge. I just couldn’t think of one idea. Luckily a brainwave hit me yesterday and I managed to get a mani done.

For this Mani I used:

Tip Top Go For Gold, Sinful Colours in 101 Snow Me White and 103 Black on Black and Essence Nail Art Tattoo Pen.

I personally absolutely love this mani and I am happy I didnt force myself to do something as I would not have been inspired to do this one.

Christmas Challenge: Christmas Food

Possibly one of the more difficult themes today… I wanted to do something completely original for this one so I googled my idea and didn’t find anything. Score πŸ™‚

My all time favorite thing to have during the festive season… Honey glazed gammon!

Its the best thing ever! Ooooh and drowning it in dijon mustard… yes please! Ok seriously my mouth is watering like crazy.

Besides being a nail art addict I am quite the foodie. I love food… good food.

Ok anyway here is my honey glazed gammon mani dripping in mustard.

Honey Glazed Gammon with Mustard Mani

Tehe
For this mani I used all Essence products.
I tried really hard to match my polish to the sticky goodness that the glazed gammon has and Essence Colour & Go 116 Gorgeous Bling Bling was the perfect match. Then every gammon gets scored so I used 120 Cookie Love to draw on those lines and ofcourse 118 Little Miss Sunrise for the Mustard.

Ooh yes and the Nail art tattoo pen to do the black decorations.Β  We dont put those on our Xmas gammon but they have them in every pinterest pic out there!

What is your traditional festive meal?

All the best.

And here is a little glitter tip that might just make your life loads better…

When ever we order Pizza Take-outs we get all our extra’s like Chilli’s and such in little plastic containers.

I keep mine and use them for various Nail Art storage options but one of my favs is as a glitter catcher!
