Modern Holly with Vintage Velvet

For this holiday mani I wanted to keep it simple.  I had seen on a nail blog (of course, I can't remember which one...sorry) where they just did three dots on the accent nail.  I really liked the look of this, so I decided that I would use this idea for my holiday mani.

I started with 2 coats of Finger Paints Vintage Velvet.  I love this polish, the color, application, formula are all just great.  I then added three dots to my ring fingers and thumbs.  I did the outer 2 dots with China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint (the leaves) and the middle dot with OPI Wocka Wocka! (the berry).  I then topped it all off with a coat of SV.  I really loved the results and wore this mani for 3 days.
All photos taken inside with a flash.  I wore this during the week, so I don't get to really see the sun :(

What do you think?  Is it festive enough?

This is so cute!!! I think I've seen this on another blog too, but I can't remember either, so I'm of no help, lol. I love how simple it is, but it still adds an extra something to the mani! Great color choices!

I think it's festive enough, but then again I only like to look at festive nails, not actually have them on my nails. Like I said in a post on my blog, it's not really my thing.

@MariJo: Thanks. I was really happy with the way this one turned out. And I got really lucky with the colors working so nicely together.

@Beauty: I think it was festive enough too, and work appropriate. I've tried some more advanced/traditional holiday manis and I like those too :)
