26 Great Nail Art Ideas Challenge- Pastel Christmas

Hello, my lovely readers, I hope you have all had a lovely week and are all prepared for Christmas. I can not believe how fast it has crept up on us, it doesn't seem real that tomorrow is Christmas Eve. The boyfriend and I have a little tradition of ordering take out and watching movies on Christmas eve, so I am really looking forward to that. Today's post is another Crumpet's Nail Tarts 26 Great Nail Art Ideas Challenge, so let's jump in!

This time the prompt was Pastel Christmas, so I decided to use one of my new Born Pretty Christmas plates and create a pastel Christmas jumper design.


To create this look I first put down a white base on all of my nails, then I chose the jumper image I would use and stamped this onto the black nails on my glamour mat. I then used three of the pastel polishes from Moo Moo's Signatures Rainbow Flowers bath collection to fill in each part of the jumper design. 


The three polishes I chose from the collection were, Blushing Akito, Ocean Song and Forget-Me-Not. I was really pleased with how these three worked together, I would definitely love a jumper in these colours it would definitely be unique. Once the image was filled in I used my Moyra top coat to make them into decals and placed each one on my nails. 



The Born Pretty plate I won in their recent Anniversary Giveaway, I received this and a cute Christmas stamper with some scrapers. I only got this in the post a few days ago, which is a shame as I would have liked to use it for a few more mani's. I will just have to keep them in mind for next year, the images are quite large so would be good for both short and long nails. #36245

I really enjoyed trying this method of colouring a full-size nail image in, instead of a singular decal. I will definitely keep trying this method out for future mani's. I can't wait to see everyone's pastel Christmas mani's, as always they will be in the In-Linkz down below. So far I have managed to complete all of the prompt for the challenge, so I am giving myself a pat on the back.



As always my amazing readers, have a fabulous nail day and a massive Merry Christmas to all! Chat to you all again soon.

  7. I love the idea of pastels for this season - IMO, the shades are more suited for Winter than vampy ones. Christmas jumpers are my thang, so this mani is right up my alley.
