Christmas Mani Challenge | Red & Green

You have heard, I have mentioned… it’s a well documented fact that I am a huge Christmas fanatic (can you be a fan of a holiday?  Maybe I just LOOOOVE it a lot).  When a couple of the girls from the Mani Monday’s nail polish group banded together to create a Christmas Mani Challenge, I was all over that like a fat kid in a candy shop.

Today is the first day of the challenge and the theme is Red & Green.

I originally saw Yukie (from YukieLoves.com) mix cream polishes with the textured polishes and I LOVED seeing the finished effect and immediately thought of doing this for the challenge.

Green Fingers: Base is Zoya Veruschka and the textured polish is Zoya Chita.  I had to add a top coat over Veruschka because it is a matte polish and I really wanted a glossy shine under the textured finish.

Red Fingers: Base is Cherry Red by Sally Hansen (Hard as Nails, Xtreme Wear) and the textured polish is Zoya Chyna.

 If you are interested in joining the Christmas Mani Challenge, I have included the photo below showing the dates and themes for each mani.  If you do participate, please make sure you tag me in your photos on Instagram so I can check out your awesome manis!!

Happy Painting :)

  1. Love this combo!
    What a great idea to mix texture and cream. I tried it once… can you remember my candy cane big fat failure…lol.

    This looks great!
