10 Day Holiday Nail Art Challenge: Day 3 - Giftwrap

Good morning! For this challenge, I was inspired by some beautiful paper I picked up last year. There was some left over this year, so I used it to wrap one gift. I like this paper because it is a foil paper and has a good pattern on it - they are supposed to be ornaments with gold designs. Since it is tone on tone, you will see that (hopefully) on my nails as well. Take a look.

This is Essie Apertif for the base. The ornaments were painted on with NYC Broadway Burgundy Frost, and the detail was done with Julep Sienna. Here is a picture of my nails in front of the wrapped gift, not quite the same, but this was as close as I was going to get. :)

Here is Essie Apertif by itself. It's the perfect Christmas red.

Thanks for looking, and be sure to check out the others who are participating in this challenge!
