Stroke of Midnight

Cinderella Nail Art

Today is New Year's Eve, but I can still make a Disney mani work.  The third look in my Disney series is Cinderella.  Like New Year's Eve, Cinderella's fun and magic ends at midnight.

Change Your Fate

Brave Nail Art

"If you had a chance to change your fate, would you?"  The second nail design in my Disney series is Merida from Brave.  My freehand painting didn't quite turn out how I wanted it to, so I don't think it really looks like Merida.  But I painted it with my left hand!  If you take that into consideration, then it seems a lot better.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Nail Art

Hope all you good little girls and boys left out some milk and cookies last night for Santa. :)  I love Christmas!  December went by way too fast, so I had to do one more red and green mani for the season.

Perfect Poinsettias

Poinsettia Nail Art

Aside from Christmas trees, poinsettias are probably the next most common foliage used for décor this time of year.  Their red and green colors certainly make them the perfect Christmas plant.  This design uses freehand painting for the flowers, but it is quite simple.

Christmas Noir

Black and White Christmas Nail Art

I've seen a lot of cute black and white Christmas themed nails, so I decided to try one of my own. I chose simplistic stamped designs of a Christmas tree forest and a sweater pattern.  For the other nails, I added a present nail and some glitter and studs.

Sandy Claws

Nightmare Before Christmas Nail Art

One of the many things I love about The Nightmare Before Christmas...it works for Halloween and Christmas nails. :)  This is a darker Christmas look with the red and black, but the snowflakes help cheer it up a bit.

Abstract Christmas

Abstract Christmas Nail Art

This abstract look is really easy and really fast to create.  I just used some dry brushing with foil and studs.  The color scheme is still holiday, but the design has an artsy feel since the dry brush nails look like an abstract painting.

Holly Berry

Holly Christmas Nail Art
 
Christmas is next week!  So crazy how fast the time goes.  I have plans to do a really elaborate nail design before Christmas is over, but for now, today and tomorrow's designs will be on the simpler side.  Initially, I was only going to do the holly feature nail and leave the rest plain red, but that looked too boring for this magically festive time of year.

Candy Cane Lane

Candy Cane Nail Art

During the holidays, I love everything peppermint...peppermint ice cream, peppermint bark, peppermint pretzels, peppermint hot cocoa, the list goes on.  So, of course I had to do peppermint candy cane nails!  These are really easy and just use some nail striping tape.

Cold As Ice

Winter Nail Art

These glacier inspired nails will have you feeling the chill of how "cool" they look.  :)  I decided to try a new technique to create the worn effect on my glacier nails.

Arizona Wildcats

Arizona Wildcats Nail Art

I know I promised holiday nails, but today, Arizona plays Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship Game.  As a proud U of A alum, I had to paint some red and blue nails to show some school spirit.  Go wildcats!!!
