Manicure Monday: Christmas Eve Santa Edition

Monday 24 December 2012

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. ~Burton Hillis
It’s Christmas Eve!  In less than 12 hours it will finally be here.
I love Christmas, but not for the presents, for just how happy it makes everyone. For one day everyone just seems to just be in this euphoric mood. Even now, I still bound out of bed, jump around like a spring, and give everyone ridiculous amounts of hugs!
We don’t have a lot of traditions in our family, but the one I am lucking forward to is my Nana’s Christmas cake. You can’t beat a Nana’s homemade Christmas cake that she’s been preparing for the last 4 months. There is just something magical about a Nana’s baking. Now I realise my last post was about being sensible with Christmas goodies, but I may end up eating my own words as I devour her cake!
But that is for tomorrow! Today in preparation I have painted my nails Christmassy at last! 
Santa Nail Art

To recreate, I used:
  • Nails Inc- Tate
  • Models Own nail art pen- Black
  • Models Own nail art pen- White
  • Models Own nail art pen- White 
Model Own Nail Pen
  • First, paint Tate all over your nails.
  • Then, carefully about a third way down, draw 3 ‘humps’ end to end with the white pen.
  • Next fill in below the hump line with the white.
  • Using the brush in the black nail art pen, draw half way down the nail a line end to end.
  • Repeat until thick.
  • Once dry, using the gold, draw a square in the centre of the black line.
  • Finally, dot 2 black buttons above the belt.
I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Make tomorrow full of joy and happiness. Don’t think about the presents, but about your family and friends. Take the time to give them a hug, let them have the last piece of turkey, for they are what matter.

Merry Christmas one and all!



  1. oh my god i love this naildessing, it is amazing!

    oh gott nein jetzt kommt das
    john ich will bei astro.tv arbeiten natürlich glaueb ich nciht an sternzeichen!
    also ok ganz ehrlich, ich ja es klingt doof aber ich glaube das es höhere mächte gibt, ich glaueb nicth an einen gott, also nicht das es nur 1(!) wesen über uns ist und nicht dsas seine aufgabe ist auf uns "aufzupassen" es gitb sogar "beweise" ind er natur wo man vermuten kann, dass es übermächte geben muss....

    und ich glaube an astrologie, ich meine der mond schaft es wassermassen bei voll und halb etc. in bewegung zu setzen, aals ob das keien auswirkung auf uns hat...ich glaube aber nicht wirklich an sternzeichen, ich glaube das es so hmm das man geprägt wird durch die umwelt also ich glaube sehr stark an diese ganzen wetter abhängigen sachen und bla, aber jetzt die zeitung aufschlagen udn "ach der krebs wird mich heute glücklich amchen" ist nicht meins.
    ich bin aber stier und ich bin super stolz stier zu sein ich würde mit keinem sternzeichen tauschen!

  2. thank you! hope you had an amazing christmas too! xx

  3. omg I love this!! I wish I saw this before christmas :( I guess there's always next year
