The theme for the Christmas Contest was "Tacky Christmas Nails" and after Googling some images of tacky Christmas sweaters, this is the design I came up with. And yes, if you are wondering, those are humping deer, and yes there is an actual Christmas sweater with those on it :P (see here).
The polishes I used for this design were China Glaze, Red Satin, O.P.I., Black Onyx and Hot Fun in the Summer-Lime. All of the details/designs were done using acrylic paints and a small detail brush.
There were 3 different categories for this contest: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. I entered mine into the Intermediate category, and below is the picture of the prizes :) I was so excited when I received them this morning that I could not wait to open the box (even though I had alot of errands to run lol). I will be doing swatches of each polish over the next few days so stay on the look out for a post within the next week.
18 polishes, 10 orange wood sticks, a stud wheel, elf cosmetic brush and an eos lip balm.
This is the cute note Gianna wrote me along with the adorable mini stocking :)
From left to right: Midnight Mystery (my favorite!), Red-y or Not, Bubble Gum Pink and Pot of Gold.
Sea Escape, Purple Dream, Mambo Mauve, Jazzy Berry and Nude.
Jawbreaker (Love the name! :P) and Sunset (which is a color changing polish).
Haze of Love
Endless Blue (I have had my eye on this one!)
This one doesn't have a name (at least not on this bottle) but the number is HLE18 3226.
As you can see I will be having alot of fun over the next few days! :P Not only with these polishes but also with the new Stamping Plates I received for Christmas. I will post lost of pictures here on my blog and possibly a few reviews on my new YouTube Channel.
