Grfc day1: not yet, but almost!

Orly Nail Defense

China Glaze Love Letters (1 coat)
OPI Funny Bunny (gradient)
essie tennis corset (gradient + 2 coats)
Posca (Green/Black)
Swarovski #1028 ss5 Light siamese

essence better than gel nails top sealer

 

As I promised yesterday…here I am, with the new mani, as the first mani for “getting ready for Christmas” challenge! First theme of this lovely challenge is ‘not yet, but almost’;  which has also been noted as ‘first Christmas-themed manicure/makeup. In fact, I’ve NEVER done ANY of Christmas-themed mani EVER (surprisingly!), so this turned as REALLY my first Christmas-themed mani in my life :D

 

 

Honestly I had no idea what to do until I decided to go for white gradient tips. I wanted to add something shimmery so I grabbed tennis corset from essie though I now think probably essence’s Top of the Ice-Stream was better; but well, I can try that idea some moment later :) Anyway I bet a piece of stone and small painting turned this plain gradient into nice simple Christmas mani…how do you think? ;)

 

 

さてクリスマスチャレ1日目、テーマは「Not yet, but almost(まだまだ、でももうすぐ)」と称して小手調べ的にクリスマスネイル第1弾、であります。……ところでよー考えたら私ほとんどイベントネイルとかした事が無くて、クリスマスネイルも全力で初めてで、一体どうしたらいいかなシールでも貼るかないろいろ描くかなどうしようかなでも後でまたクリスマスネイル来るしなあまりごっちゃりしたのを今からいうのも無いなといろいろ考えてたらこんなんなりましたよ、と

 

 

そもそも白グラデも超久しぶりなのでアレですが。もう少し段差無くしたいなあ。
