So I think this is only my second Christmas design this year, whoops! I blame my Ciate advent calender not giving me Christmas related colours. For this I used ‘Boudoir’ (AGAIN I think it’s my fave out of the Calender so far) and Barry M for the green and gold. The marble was done by blobbing on the polishes and then swirling them about with a toothpick. Yes that technique is less messy than water marbling and it gives a different effect, but my goodness it took seriously ages for them to dry. They looked weird plain so of course I had to add something else.
So I was going to do a santa costume for this colour, it was just that kind of red, but thought that was too obvious. I then decided to to a ‘twist’ on Candy Canes by using negative nail space. I don’t quite know if that concept worked, they’re pretty removed from candy canes, but I think it looks cool anyway. I’ve ran out of striping tape so all those lines were hand painted, a little wobbly but not that bad!
