Skittlette nail art with a stamped Santa and textured polish

I'm a few days behind on my 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge looks but that's okay. :) Today I have my fill for the theme of Santa and/or elves, and I decided to go with a jolly little Santa with some snow and holly!

Skittlette nail art with a stamped Santa and textured polish

The base for this look was Essie Find Me an Oasis and my Santa is a decal I made with plate QA19 (from Born Pretty) and a few Konad Stamping Polishes. To make it a bit more interesting I added details with China Glaze There's Snow One Like You because as far as I'm concerned you can never go wrong by adding texture. :)

Here a look at the other designs from the Challenge Your Nail Art lovelies:



And here's a look at the other themes we have coming up:
