Candy Cane Mani

Happy Holidays!
This past weekend, I was inspired to attempt a candy cane design. I must say that I'm pretty impressed with myself :) I successfully transferred an idea from my brain to my nails! Hooray!

I started off this mani with 2 coats of a no-name polish from Claire's. It is a white shimmer glitter that comes in a flower-shaped bottle. I probably could have used a base coat in white or pale pink, but I was satisified with the slight VNL that still showed through. Once this completely dried with a layer of SV, I cut out strips of tape in varying sizes. I placed the strips on my nails and covered with Barielle - Coco Bar. I had picked up this color from Ulta on the discount rack and it is a great Christmas shade. As usual, I added a second coat of SV to seal in the design.

Unlike most manis, I'm still wearing this 2 days later! I just can't seem to take it off. I love the way it turned out, and it makes me feel so festive :)

These photos really help it feel like Christmas with a snowy background! Happy Holidays :)
