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!

    1. Thanks. My camera kind of freaked out on the red. It's actually a bit darker in real life, and you can see the difference between the two reds more. :)


Feel free to comment, or even ask questions here as well. I try to respond to everyone within a day or two, and would love to hear what you think about my blog in general, the nail art, or any suggestions you may have.
