12 Days of Christmas challenge 8

Today is the day of ornaments. Now in our house the Christmas tree has to look perfect! Mom has always moved things around until it looks right……until this year. I took charge, and rearranged it. Decorating the tree is a deadly serious job in our house. Last year I put up 5 trees. Not all in one house though ha ha. This year it was only 2 due to my back. It’s become tradition that I put up my adopted grandparents tree. I was horrified they weren’t going to put it up last year, so I did it.Β  Everyone should have a tree up in my eyes. It’s not a huge tree thankfully for my back. My favourite ornaments have to be the hand blown clear glass baubles I’ve slowly started to collect out of the sales for when I get my own house. They reflect the light beautifully on the tree. Every year at least one new ornament has been added, except this year. There’s no more room left on the tree :(.

These nails took no time at all. Does this mean I’m getting good at nail art? πŸ˜‰ I used a dark green base colour, because I felt my baubles were the tree kind.

Yep I certainly had to shove my hand in the tree, and take a picture that’s just the kind of girl I am. For quickness I stuck to one colour for the baubles.

My dots dragged slightly when I used SV πŸ™ They don’t look too bad though. I decided to do a mix and match of designs for the baubles with the help of my dotting tools, and stripper. I thought the hardest part of the mani would have been getting the string that holds the bauble thin enough. Fortunately I only had to touch up one. Had a bit of shrinkage on two nails as well.
