The perfect accessory to any holiday party look is a cute mani!

I’m trying to post less, but also want to make sure I give you a video and a stationary photo of each mani, but with new manis daily it’s hard to do that and not post an abundance of photos😂 Anywhoooo here is the stationary photo of my Gingerbread People Mani! I didn’t love them after doing them, but I quite enjoy them now!😀 I used @maxusnails Adored as my base, and then the glitter is @poetrycowgirlnailpolish 24 Karat!🙂 😍 It’s a beauty! Also the other day in my stories I talked about making our family Christmas card, and I sent the design off last night, and we get to pick it up today!!!! So excited to see how it printed, as I’ve never done a pass printing of any of my art, but we are getting 20 copies and I’m really hoping it came out like I have envisioned! 😲 I’ll report back! #nailmas #nailmas2019 #thenailartstory #nailspiration #nails2inspire #nailsmakeus #alltheprettynails #25Sweetpeas #25Sweetpeadec19 #25Sweetpeas19 #trna
