12 Days of Christmas challenge 12

Merry Christmas!!!! Hope you all got what you wanted, and are having fun with family! Its the last challenge today. I’m proud of myself for finishing this challenge. I’ve completed every challenge on time, and have been super organised. It’s forced me to try things I probably would have avoided doing. Shown me I can do more than I think I can. Also completed the whole thing whilst real life has been crazy, full of assignments, and a chest infection thrown in.

Mr Claus was another mani I did whilst having a chest infection, so its another accent mani like the elves challenge. For my Santa I googled and came across Spektor nails Santa. He was quick and easy to do.

I stuck with the holo gold glitter continuing my elves theme. My Santa looks a bit drunk ha ha. The base is Sally Hansen quick sand; When I saw it in the pound shop I thought I need it for Santa or he will have a sun tan. I don’t really own a real nude shade. I taped off the area for his hat. Free handed his beard. Then added all the details. Everything was going fine until I got to his mouth. Started out with a thin red line then it messed up. Looked like a 3 year old had put lipstick on him HA HA HA. Was pretty shocking. The dotting tool came out again to clean up his lipstick stains.

I’m sticking with my Santa was drunk, and had a run in with some lipstick. Sounds plausible right?! I’ve never done a Santa before so I’m pretty proud. Especially as he’s on my left hand and I was in a rush, because of my chest infection and the fumes.The challenge is now over wah wah wahhhh. Now it’s time to play with my Christmas goodies!!!! I will post up my Christmas when I can.
