Winter Holiday Challenge - Gingerbread Man and Candy Canes

Friday, 7 December 2012

Wahey! The weekend is nearly upon us!  I am very excited as I have a christmas-themed weekend planned in London and there will be ice-skating, mulled wine and lots of food, WHOOP!  Anyway, Day 2 of The Crumpets Winter holiday challenge, the theme for today is Gingerbread Man and Candy Canes.

For this, I decided to just do red and white stripy nails for my candy canes, using Barry M red glitter as the base colour (this appears to be turing into my Christmas go-to colour!) and then I painted on white stripes using a paintbrush and Collection Cosmetics White.

For the Gingerbread men, I decided to use a really dark green as the base colour (Collection Cosmetics - Dusk) and then I used an orange Kiko polish for the gingerbread body, Collection Cosmetics black and white and Barry M Red for the detail.  Unfortunately I top-coated a little too quick and have smudged them a little, but the basic idea is there.

    1. Thank you! I am not sure exactly where we are going (I am visiting my little brother) but I know Ice Skating at Somerset House is involved, and he mentioned some kind of foody/christmas market type thing in Islington on Saturday so it should be fun. I've just googled the Winter Wonderland and that looks ace too, ARGH! SO MUCH CHRISTMAS! (not burnt out yet though ;o)
