Vintage Christmas

Hey all! This is the 2nd NOTD for Christmas of my 12 Christmas Nail Design series. And though I've called it Vintage Christmas, its really a mix between vintage and retro. This design was inspired by this Retro Christmas Card I saw in Etsy (view it here) but the colours are really vintage. 

Lacqueerisa: Vintage Christmas

When I saw the Christmas card, I was prepared, to change my title to Retro Christmas, plus I thought that'd be something different for a change. But.... after so many fail attempts for detailed snowflake, I just threw that idea away. Lol. I've even thought of changing my whole plan and go for a different nail art all together. But, I really liked the stripes, the colours and the idea of snowflake on them. Which is why, in the end, I settled with this look and a really simplified star-looking snowflakes with little dots of snow.

While I was still doing this NOTD, I saw Jessie from Nailed It NZ posted a stripe tutorial (seriously its awesome!) Although I've did mine in a very tedious way, I was surprised we thought of the similar colour scheme! Haha! I think it just shows how well these colours goes together :P 

So, I hope you've enjoyed looking at these nails. While I continue to enjoy sipping my Peppermint Mocha Frappucino ;) Gotta love peppermints during this time of the year. Haha! Have a great day y'all!

  6. oh gawd.. very pretty, but it looks like so much work! i'm always curious about nail photos. we always end up seeing one side only... so what does your other side look like? i know mine always looks better on one side then the other! *lol*

    1. Hi! Thanks! It's pretty tedious, but I suppose something simpler would be leave out the snowflakes(they were a real pain!) and just go with tiny snow dots. I modified my toothpick for smaller tip (lol!).

      For this mani I've only done one side. Because I'm working on a series, I wouldn't want to change too many times (sometimes I'd like to admire them a little longer :P ) So ok, to answer your question, as much as I'd love to say "they look just as good!" - that will almost never happened. Hahaha! They won't be as good. And they are bound to take much longer time to accomplish. =P
