Christmas Party Nails

Hi everyone! I'm back...ish. I was really behind on Christmas manis and it's just not the same posting them after the holidays, so I guess the deadline inspired me! These are the nails I wore to my work Christmas party, which was kind of a good idea in my head but didn't work out exactly as planned.

I started off with one coat of Ulta's The Jungle Look - ONE freakin' coat. Below is no top coat, too, and look how shiny! This color reminds me of Mandy because she's always encouraging me to use it ;)


Then I wanted to add some dots. I decided on silver, but my boyfriend also wanted red... but the red didn't really show up and they just looked black in most lights. You can see it below with the flash that it is red, but the first picture they hardly show up. I made the dots using my Migi nail art pens.



And there you have it, really simple holiday mani. I was going to do this with blue and silver for Hanukkah as well, but I've lost track of all time and haven't... but you can visualize, I'm sure.

xoxo,
Amanda

I LOVE THE JUNGLE LOOK! Old bottles of it are 0.99 at work and I keep telling customers to buy it and they're like "Ewww... Green! NO." ...More for me, people, more for me...

PS -- Your dotting skills are awesome!

I knew you'd like this one! <3 I'm not a huge green person, but this one is great all around - price, formula, shininess, color, pigmented!

Thank you! My Migi pens make it rather foolproof though ;)

YOU HAVE MIGI PENS?!?! I AM SOOOO JEAAALLLOOOUUUSSS!!!!

Are they as fabulous as they seem? I *NEED* to know. :)

Yes! They are in no way a scam - bought the set for $20 at a local fair and I've been ordering the refills almost daily for about $3 shipping and that's it!
