JUST BECAUSE IT'S CHRISTMAS

4:19 pm


This is finally a dream come true - splashing the colours of Christmas all over a nail, telling a Christmas story with my nail art.

I want to share with you, pictures of the thought I nursed in my head for so long,  just because it's Christmas. I'm so pleased to see it come alive.

The very first one is this:


My Red-Nose Smiling Reindeer


This happens to be my bestest. Let me tell you the story behind this art: So I  went for a programme organised by my church and I saw this tall, pretty little girl with her beautiful painting.


SORRY FOR THE BLUR.....PICTURE WAS TAKEN AT NIGHT

I thought Zuriel was the name of the painting, until I asked her name and she said 'ZURIEL'. The name had to stick in my head because it was unique. I knew a part of me wanted me to do something more with this painting, so I asked to take a picture and she said, "yes please". ***END OF STORY***



THANK YOU ZURIEL FOR THIS CHRISTMAS INSPIRATION

NAIL POLISH USED:
*Jordana's 968 in Mellow Yellow (YELLOW)

*Jordana's 064 in Holiday Red (RED)

*Milani's High Speed Fast Dry 23 in Black Swift (BLACK)





THE NEXT:









This silver striping tape was gotten from BORN PRETTY. You can make your choice and buy HERE

NAIL POLISH USED:
*Jordana's 064 in Holiday Red (RED)

GLITTER WAS A COMBINATION:

*Jordana's 208 in Silver Glitter and
*Khroma Beauty's 825 in Flicker Flame




AND:





NAIL POLISH USED:
*The lemon-colour nail polish used as a base was a random one I got, I couldn't read the name on the bottle because it had faded.


FOR THE CIRCLES:
*Jordana's 064 in Holiday Red (RED)
*Jordana's 090 in White

AND BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE A DARK SHADE OF GREEN, I DID A MIXTURE OF:
*Jordana's 140 in Sapphire (BLUE) and
*Jordana's 968 in Mellow Yellow (YELLOW)
(Thank God I loved Fine Art back in school, it came in handy! Blue+Yellow=Green, Remember?)


THE LAST:






NAIL POLISH USED:
*Jordana's  Glitter 16 Green Glitz
*Red, silver and the dark green (for the fir leaves) are as mentioned above
(You can tell this is me just being lazy to type....*smiles*).


Every design was inspired by Christmas and hand painted by me. I enjoyed every bit of it, plus I handled a canon camera and took some shots by myself for the first time and when my shots started getting blurry and my angles were looking funny, I got help from my brother, Chinedu and an awesome friend turned brother, Promise Dibiah. My model was Sandra of 'Sandie Says' - thank you for showing up even on a short notice.

Will I do this again?.....definitely "YES".




MERRY CHRISTMAS DEARIES!!!

with love
