The Digit-al Dozen DOES Traditions, Day 5: Home Alone Movie Nails have been so terrible on this month's Digit-al Dozen challenge. Still, I'm happy I'm finishing it, even if it's two days late on the schedule.

For the final day, I chose something that was a tradition in many Portuguese families while I grew up.
Portuguese TV networks didn't have much in their film inventory, so every Christmas Day there was a particular movie that was on and that happened every single year. I kid you not.

And that movie was...

Home Alone Movie Nails

Home Alone with Macaulay Culkin is one of my favourite Christmas comedies and one I think is timeless.
The 90s movies rock and I'll def have my children watch it on Christmas ;)

Home Alone Movie Nails

I painted my nails three coats of Polish Alcoholic Omega and freehanded the design with acrylic paints, inspired by the movie poster.

Movie Nails

I remember we used to complain how every year we had the same movie to watch but we'd sit in front of the TV nonetheless and we would laugh on the same movie parts and not miss a thing.
Nowadays, you don't get Home Alone, you get Harry Potter, which, yeah... not the same thing ;)

What's the  movie you always watch on Christmas Day?

If you wanna see what the rest of the ladies' chose for Day 5 of Traditions, check the inlinkz below!

  1. Beautiful nail art! I think you did a fantastic job at the lettering - that's never easy! I feel like that about some of the things they show here in England but that just makes it feel even more Christmas-y! In case I do not visit your blog again before then have a fantastic Christmas! xx

  2. I just tried to watch this with my 7 year old the other day. He was come sick, do we cuddled and watched movies...but this wasn't a hit, yet! Maybe next year. Your letters blow my mind Hun. Love this!

  3. Fantastic job freehanding the lettering! That's so difficult to do and you make it look like it was a breeze!! That takes so much skill :) Hats off!

  4. Such a fun manicure Mina! I always try to watch The Muppets Christmas Carol, it's my own little tradition :)

  5. These are great, I love them! Just showed my son and he loves them too! We watch Home Alone ALL the time. We also love Elf, The Polar Express and my favourite Christmas movie of all time is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. I love Christmas movies LOL

  6. Love it! It's a great movie so no wonder it was tradition! I have so many Christmas movies I watch... Home Alone, Elf, Christmas Vacation, A Charlie Brown Christmas, The Polar Express, A Christmas Carol, A Christmas Story (that one in particular gets played constantly in the US on Christmas day... there is literally a channel that plays it on loop ALL DAY), How The Grinch Stole Christmas, The Family Stone... the list goes on. What can I say, I love Christmas movies. :)
