Ugly Christmas Sweater Nails - 12 Days of Christmas Holiday Manicures Day 7

Ugly Christmas Sweater Nails
Hold on to your stockings people, if you thought ugly Christmas sweaters were only for holiday parties at Grandma's house, better chickity-check yo self because they have found quite a cozy home right here on my fingertips too. Ho-Ho-HOLLA if ya hear me!
Ugly Christmas Sweater Nails
What started out as a fun idea quickly turned into a not-so-gentle reminder that my stamping skills need some serious work. There will definitely be more stamping to come in the future, just so I can practice up if nothing else. The base for these nails is 3 coats of Zoya Dove. I could have gotten away with 2 coats, but as always I felt the need to overdo it.
The sweater pattern was done using white Konad stamping polish and stamping plate 38 from Pueen. The stamping plate I used for the accent nail is Pueen 63, my first time using both of them and I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. My pink Konad stamper picked up everything without any trouble at all, but my white soft "marshmellow" stamper just wasn't havin' any of it today. I now realize the stamper holds all the power, lesson learned. I gotta admit, I kind of love this manicure. Bummer it's got to come off for tomorrow's look!

    1. Thank you so much! I'm always partial to greys for some reason whenever I pick out my own clothing, so I thought these would really represent my personality! :)
