Red Plaid Flannel Shirt Nails

This manicure is 100% inspired by my favorite outfit lately, a nice red flannel shirt, leggings and flats. I pretty much live in it these days, so my nails might as well match right? I'm sure everyone is just about partied out from all of the Christmas festivities over the next few days, and if I know one thing it's that when the holidays wind down it's finally time for me to relax - Hey a girl's gotta be comfy! I thought these red plaid flannel shirt nails would represent my favorite comfy outfit perfectly!

I've been trying to work on my stamping skills, so this was another great opportunity. The base of my nails is 2 coats of China Glaze-Merry Berry, which I found to be thinner than other China Glaze polishes for some reason. Maybe I just got a funky bottle? If you've noticed this too, let me know down below in the comments. For the plaid pattern, I used the Mash-50 stamping plate, a squishy white "marshmellow" stamper, and black Konad polish.

It's a bit hard to pick up in the photos, because the stamping is subtle, but I really like the look of this design. It completely reminds me of being nice and warm, wrapped up in a cozy flannel shirt or blanket. Bring on the fuzzy feelings!

What's your favorite warm weather outfit? Are you a flannel or sweater kinda gal when it's cold outside?
