Manicure Monday - Trying out some Christmas nail art

On the build up to Christmas, Laura from She Who Does Nails has been creating a nail art advent calendar in which every day she posts a different Christmas themed nail art tutorial.

I attempted her Christmas lights nail art and my results did not look half as good as hers!

P.s sorry for the messy nails, I took the pictures a few days after I'd done these.

The hard part about doing this nail art is getting a thin enough black 'wire' so that it doesn't look too weird. Also what I did wrong with this manicure is not leaving the little black 'prongs' that the lights would be connected to. Instead I painted over them... Also my lights aren't really light shaped. I did try though!

I also tried out the Christmas pudding nails! I think my nails might have been the wrong shape but they still look cute!

What lovely nail art, I especially love the christmas puds - so neat and just pretty. The sparkles in the brown make it extra christmassy. Can't wait to see more of your posts :-)
