Evergreen Christmas Eve Manciure

Yep it's Christmas Eve and if you are like my family this is just when the festivities start to begin. We have a huge Christmas Eve dinner and invite all our friend s and family over and cook and eat and open some, NOT ALL of the gifts :)

So on this day I'm going to share with you a great green manicure I conjured up a couple days ago. Basically it goes like this, I had several green polishes I wanted to wear and I couldn't decide so I wore them all, LOL...yeah that's it!

Left to Right: China Glaze "Glittering Garland", KBShimmer "All Decked Out", China Glaze "Gussied Up Green".

L to R: China Glaze "Glittering Garland", China Glaze "Gussied Up Green", and KBShimmer "All Decked Out"

Bottle Shot

China Glaze "Glittering Garland" is an evergreen shimmer with green and gold micro-glitter from their 2011 Let It Snow Holiday Collection. Applied well, no issues.

China Glaze "Gussied Up Green" is a dark green shimmer, it's deep and "glowy", and at very rare and certain angled moments you can see flashes of dark blue, in the bottle and the nail.  I did 3 coats, although it was opaque in 2 coats, because I was falling deeper and deeper in love with this fabulous green! :)

KBShimmer "All Decked Out" is an awesome dark green Christmas tree glitter bomb! This is from their 2012 Holiday Collection. A deep forest green is loaded with a mix of colored hexes in various sizes, gold holographic hexes, and a scattering of gold holographic stars.

KBShimmers' are hands down, the easiest glitters to apply. I love how they glide on and I never have to "place" the glitter!!

Amazing glitter, it is so pretty and the stars are just darling :) I love them!  I topped this manicure with my usual 2 coats o top coat and had no issues, except with the darling stars.

The corners of the stars kept poking up just a bit, and I could feel the sans, LOL. Next time I wear this I'll do 3 coats of top coat over this maybe so my stars don't jump off my manicure, LOL! :)

Happy Holidays everyone and Keep It Sweet!
Pin It!
