The Digit-al Dozen DOES Traditions, Day 3: Peppermint Cane Nail Art

http://cubbiful.blogspot.pt/2013/01/review-policy-for-public-relations.htmlHello, lovelies!
If you're noticing the double posting tonight, you've also noticed I'm behind on my Digit-al Dozen challenge and nothing makes sadder (or angrier - lo! the high standards we set for ourselves!).

But sometimes life has a way to say 'I'm still in charge' and that's when we all have to play it by hear.

Anyway (so philosophical, Mina!), I'm catching up tomorrow but for today I bring you my Day 3: Peppermint Canes.

Peppermint Cane Nail Art

And the story to these nails goes as follows - I've got a baby sister, whom I love dearly.
And it's been some years now that I made it a tradition to, on top of all the other presents, gift my sister a box, a stocking, a bag (it changes every year) filled with candy.



Peppermint Cane Nail Art

I couldn't think of a more festive candy than peppermint candy canes, so that's what I did.
I started by applying two coats of the gorgeous Celestial Mughal Emperor on my nails.
I then freehanded the white and red stripes in opposites directions on all the nails.

I completed the look with one coats of Polish Alcoholic Shooting Stars, a most gorgeous holo glitter topper.
It was the final touch needed, don't you think? :)


Let me know what you think and check the ladies' fabulous looks below.

  5. Love how recognizable these are! And how sweet of you that you've done that for your sister each year - perhaps I'll start a similar tradition for my own sister! :D
