Maybelline Bold Gold Holly Frame Mani
So last week wasn't close enough to Christmas for me to do a real holiday themed Mani, but I didn't have the same reservations this week!

Follow the cut for more info and pics.

I haven't done a mani with a frame before, but it was super easy to do with my French Tip liner. I decided to do it inside rather than right along the edge because I thought the holly would look nice perched on it. I already have other ideas for how I could incorporate a frame into other designs, so I'm looking forward to trying that. :) I played with the idea of doing the holly on each nail in different positions, but in the end went with the same location on accent nails.

I really like how this one turned out, it's festive but not just a vomit of red and green!

(Photo update: So I got my camera working, but in the end I liked more of the pictures I took with my phone, so my posts will probably use a combo of phone pics and camera pics. Also, made a light box! Yay! I followed the instructions here, it was very easy.)

Colours:
Maybelline Color Show in Bold Gold (base)
GOSH in Lambada (berries)
Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Rags to Riches (leaves)
Rimmel French White Nail Tip Liner (frame and details)

Test nail before I started (also before I lined my lightbox, oops)
