Last weekend was the annual Christmas party held by the owners of the company I work for and I wanted to do something new on my nails for the party. I decided to try out the little abstract Christmas tree design on the newest Bundle Monster set. It is from plate BM-321. I was actually planning to use the Christmas tree stamp along with a few other Christmas themed stamps like the gift box and the ornament but I didn't like the way that they were stamping so I decided to just stick with the trees. I was afraid that the trees would be too plain completely by themselves, so I came across a swirly type design on Bundle Monster plate BM-224 and stamped it a couple times on each nail as a background to the trees. The final result ended up reminding me of something you might see on Christmas wrapping paper.
For my base color, I used Orly Dazzle. I stamped the swirl design with Konad Special Polish in white. Then using Konad green for the tree and Konad red for the tree base, I stamped about four trees randomly on top of the swirls on each nail.
I really like Orly Dazzle as a base for stamping. I've used it before and I love the way the stamped designs look over the silver background.
I'll probably do at least one or maybe two more Christmas type manicures before the holiday, but I don't know if I'll have time to actually post them until after Christmas. So if I don't get a chance before Tuesday, here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!
