Happy New Year!! Bring it on 2012!!

Ok well I have had a very very busy last month as I am sure everyone else has. With the wonderful holidays and the family time, its been impossible for me to sit down and blog. My hubby had his first week off from work in 3 years last week. So the kids were also home from school and finally go back tomorrow!!

This is going to be a nail post and maybe I will have to turn it into more than one post since I have a TON of nail pictures to show you all.

I am so excited that I am getting close to 100 followers finally. I am already putting stuff together for a giveaway!

I totally dropped the ball on the 31 days of Christmas Nail Art. I did take pics of the mani's I did the last half of the month and they fit a few of the easy categories but not so much art since I was short on time.

So here is what I did do:
China Glaze Glittering Garland is my most festive green. It IS from a holiday collection. I love the shimmer in this. Its so pretty!

Next I layered white stripes over it and then filled in the stripes with a gorgeous red glitter by Sally Hansen from the Gem Crush collection called Ca-Ching! Sorry bout the mess, I didn't do enough clean up on these.

The Christmas season put me in the mood for red though and I LOVED glittering up my reds. Here I have OPI's Fresh Frog of Bel Air over Ghina Glaze Ring In The Red. RITR is soo close to Ruby Pumps so I am glad I have these 2 beautiful reds to last me a long time.

I think I put two coats on the right hand and I liked it better.

And my last Christmas mani is back to Ruby Pumps with some China Glaze Fairy Dust thrown on top for extra sparkle. I swear I was staring at my nails in the sun while we were driving to our family gatherings.
How could you not when Fairy Dust is soo amazing!? Sorry about the shiny fingers. Cuticle oil is our friend and I was desperately needing it and shiny is better than dry right?

 I am wearing this mani in the below pic of my hubby and I by our tree. Our 5 yr old took this pic so the angle is from a little too low LOL!

Well there you have it! Hope you enjoyed this installation of my nails. Stay tuned for another post soon because I have an after Christmas look and of course my NYE nails!
