Ornament Inspired Nail Art

Hey y'all!  Christmas is only 6 days away, can you believe it?  Are you ready?  If things go well, I'll be completely done shopping by the end of today..woohoo.  I can't wait until Christmas morning, my kids are going to be SO excited about their gifts. I just hope they let us sleep later than they did last year.  They woke us up about 2:30 to tell us Santa had come lol. I don't have the heart to tell them to go back to bed.  They wouldn't go back to sleep anyways.  I mean really, who could go back to sleep knowing Santa had come???  ;) 

Anyhoo, today's nails are inspired by one of the ornaments on my tree. I really really love how these turned out, the photos don't really do them justice.

  1. looks great! and wow u really matched the color perfectly

  2. These nails are just fantastic! Ornament nails are just so right now, don't you think? Did you freehand these?

    1. Thank you! Yes, I did freehand them. :)

  3. Amber, these are spot on! I love how you matted the polish underneath with sparklies on top. I have to try that myself!

  4. Wow, these look perfect!! Just like the actual ornament :)

  5. Amber, these are lovely! They look JUST like your ornament! I love the matte finish.

  6. These look great, it's perfectly paired with the ornament! :)

  7. This looks great, I love them matte!
    And holy moly, 2:30am! I remember as a kid waking up early and we had to stay in our beds until at least 6am. There are countless home videos of us opening presents and it's still dark outside :)

  8. OK, wow, you did a perfect job recreating it! Spot on!!

    And lol, yes, my mother's rule was that we had to stay in our rooms until 6am. So we'd all wake up and gather in one person's room (there were 3 of us) and watch the clock until it ticked over to 6:00. Then ERUPTED INTO JOYOUS EXCITEMENT! lol


Thanks for stopping by today, I would love to hear any comments or questions you may have! :)
