Hello everyone, and Happy December!!
This is Mely from Rock Your Nails and I am so excited, as this is my first blog guest post! Thanks to the wonderful Pamela, who I have followed and admired for some time now on Instagram, for asking me to be a part of her Christmas/Winter guest posts. I am so honored. Thank you.
When thinking about this theme, I knew I wanted to make sure it was something I very much loved about this time of the year, and I love peppermint! This mani was meant to feel a bit whimsical, as it's definitely a fun, colorful, and happy mani to wear. I think of children's Christmas movies, where large candy canes are like trees in the snow. I think of the first time I discovered I could stir my hot chocolate using a candy cane, then drinking it while the peppermint goodness melted away. I know peppermint is available throughout the year, but I only really eat and enjoy it during the winter months, especially around Christmas. I love eating all the peppermint bark chocolates, or any baked goods with peppermint in them! Okay, okay, enough with the peppermint!!
I hope everyone can enjoy their time with family and friends, enjoy the cozy fires, and have a happy holiday season!
The base is China Glaze White on White, and the rest is acrylic paints. This was very simple to do, as I just used a small detail brush to draw out each line, starting from the center. Very simple and great even if there are imperfections!
How fantastic is Mely's design?! I've never done peppermints on my nails and now I need to! Thank you so much Mely! and thank you everyone for your visit! Happy 1st day of December, lots of hugs and kisses your way!
