Oh Christmas Tree Manicure

It was my Mama’s birthday today and after dinner I decided to do her nails. I totally stole the idea off¬†a picture I saw on Tumblr¬†earlier today and I love it. I think it looks beautifully christmassy without being obnoxious.

Props to Mum for being such a wonderful hand model!

I didn’t use a base coat as Mum has shellac on her nails. The green is Jolly Holly from China Glaze’s Holiday 2010 collection. The gold is a reeeeeeally old (like maybe 15 years) bottle of polish from a brand called Stuf, and I topped it with a coat of Seche Vite.

Will you be doing a Christmas manicure this year? If you do, please share a link in the comments below, I’d love to check it out!
