It’s the third and final week of Nail Polish Canada’s 2nd Annual Holiday Nail Art Challenge! What a bunch of fun this challenge has been!
The theme for this week’s nail art is HOLIDAY MEMORIES so I tried to think back to one moment that stood out to me. It winds up being Christmas 2010 and it was my first holiday with my boyfriend Justin. He’s an amazing artist (he paints mostly movie paintings and posters) but he worked on something different that season- an awesome landscape painting that he created just for me. He painted Lake Minnewaska since we went there on one of our first dates. He even had the painting professionally framed. I cried when I unwrapped it- it was a complete surprise and so thoughtful. I thought, “wow, this guy’s a keeper”! I’ve included a photo of the painting so you can see too. This is what I based today’s nail art on!
I painted a few nails with trees, lake and clouds to simulate the landscape. Ok, I don’t have Justin’s painting skills, but not many people do ! lol! I tried my best. Then I painted my other nails with X’s and O’s to give the feeling of love and romance since it was our very first Christmas together. I dunno why my green O’s look so bright in the pics though…they weren’t quite so bright in real life. But I like the green and red combo- it gives it more of a festive feel. I really like the x’s and o’s pattern too- I will have to try this again sometime! Maybe for valentines day if I change up the colors.
Anyway, I hope you like my nails! If you’d like to vote for me or any other mani here’s the link: HOLIDAY MEMORIES CONTEST. There’s been a ton of talent so far on the Nail Polish Canada page, it will be hard to pick a favorite!
Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!
