Christmas Manicure Inspiration 2016 | Holiday Bows

Holiday Bows

Happy Blogmas day 5! Today’s Blogmas is an inspiration post of nails I want to get done for the month. For a few months now I’ve been getting gel nails done as they last so long and I don’t have to worry about them. I find it so much easier than doing them myself and they last so long and are really worth it for me instead of buying expensive nail polish that chip within days on me. So after my last appointment I asked if the nail technician I’ve been going to could do Christmas nail art for me the next time I came in and she said sure and just show her the picture and she will recreate it on me. That got my mind going and I then turned to Pinterest for inspiration. There were so many and I debated with myself for quite some time for what I was looking for until I stumbled upon the holiday bow nail art section and fell in love. I knew exactly what I could do and since you might know I have a thing for bows it would be perfect. I started off with the classic Christmas tree, gifts, lights and candy canes which I was almost going to settle on that one but I saw all the holiday bow designs and couldn’t resist. So I ended up pinning quite a lot to my board and thus this blog post was born. Now I thought maybe you could do with some inspiration too so I compiled my favorite designs to show you. That’s enough with that very long intro and now to the pretty nail art.

I’m thinking a red base like some of these because I knew in the beginning I wanted a classic red as it screams the festive season the most for me. However I’m still trying to decide though if I should go with a sparkly silver or a glittery gold as an accent color because I am so torn and they both look so pretty together. I know I’m going with a bow but there were so many cute designs to choose from. I think the sixth one or maybe the eighth is what I’m going to show my nail technician to recreate on me. Of course I’ll have another post o my actual nails I get done afterwards as I can’t do this post and not follow it up with the results. I usually never get designs on them and just go with a plain color instead but since it is December I lie to be as festive as possible with everything.

That’s it for my Christmas nail inspiration for his year. I’ll have my last Christmas manicure post I did below to look back on because I maybe accidentally did a design over but I don’t think I have. I hope this gave you some inspiration if you are booking into an appointment in soon too. I guess today’s post is going to be short as I have a Vlogmas up now here if you want to watch my first week of December on my channel. So that is it and of course I will see you again tomorrow for another Blogmas!
