HPB Presents Holiday Cheer by The Nail Smith!

Hey, everyone!

It's time for the December Link-Up for Hobby Polish Bloggers, a group dedicated to nail art and nail polish bloggers! This group is so fantastic, I have learned so much already after being a member for only a few months, and the other ladies are amazingly nice! Keep reading to find out more about my design, and to see what everyone else created for this winter/holiday theme!

I recently got my very first bottle of KBShimmer polish, namely Kringle All the Way, so I thought this would be the perfect chance to use it! I used a makeup sponge to apply KAtW over two coats of Finger Paints Monet Money, a dark green polish I've never used before. The color combination, if I do say so myself, was PERFECT. I also loved all the circle glitters in KAtW, especially the holo ones! For my accent nails, I wanted to try a scaled gradient look, so I used Sally Hansen Celeb City, China Glaze Salsa, and Monet Money to get this look. I wish the red hadn't turned pink-ish when doing a gradient with a lighter color, but I still liked the finished product an awful lot!

  1. I love this festive mani! I love how nice Kringle All The Way looks over the green.

    1. Thanks! I wanted to use a green that didn't match the green glitters in the polish so they would still stand out, and it worked great! ^_^
