Digit-al Dozen: Festiveness, Day 5

When it came down to the last day of the challenge (which I'm late in posting!), I thought what can be more festive than a few different ways to say Merry Christmas?  So this is the mani I'm sharing now, which is the stamping I had done when I originally did the mani featuring Oopsie Daisies Carols by Candlelight a couple posts ago.....which was a perfect festive backdrop!


Oopsie Daisies Carols by Candlelight, by itself, two coats, topped with SV.


When I received Oopsie Daisies Carols by Candlelight the first thing that came to my mind was Christmas.  Simple.  Pure.  Christmas.  Are there any other colours that scream Christmas more than green, red and white?  


Started with a base of Sinful Colors Exotic Green.  This is two coats, no topcoat.  I thought this was a fabulous green base, perfect for some holiday nails....until I took it off a couple days later and seen the horror of green staining despite two layers of base coat. 


Added a layer of Oopsie Daisies Carols by Candlelight, then a coat of SV.


In case I haven't said this enough already, this simply is Christmas in a bottle.  So I was thinking Christmas, holidays, trees, wreaths...but the day I went to wear this, I had already done a wreath and tree mani just a few days before and wanted to add some different type of stampings.  So, again, with Christmas on the brain, I thought, what more appropriate stamping than an assortment of ways to say Merry Christmas.  And sure enough, I was able to find an assortment of images along these lines. Edited to add plates which I forgot!  Holly is W220, thumb Merry Christmas and Noel on middle is Dash 11, Happy Holidays on ring is W215, Feliz Natal on middle is Apipila 05, pinky Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings on index is W233.


Happy Festivus Festiveness....Merry matter how you say it; enjoy the Season!
