Hi Sugars, finally its christmas time!!! And before even begining to blabber in the post, I wish all my readers a very happy and merry Christmas :). I wish you all the polishes in the world for this Christmas (What other wish could you expect from a polish alcoholic like me 😛 ). As I mentioned earlier in my posts, I don’t much relate to all elements of Christmas because I don’t celebrate it. Inspite of this fact, I feel connected to Chrismas as a result of lot of blog reading and christmas nail art ofcourse :). They make me feel like living Chrsitmas.
Anyways there is one element of Christmas that any one can relate to; which is Santa and gifts :). So I put my socks outside every christmas in expectation of some gift :P. And this is the closest memory of Christmas for me.
Hence I did this nail art inspired by The “Jaunty Juli“. I have always loved her freehand work, no doubt she is very talented. I had done this nail art earlier inspired by her. The way she does her nails makes it look so easy that I fall into the trap everytime. I paint my nails and pick the brush thinking, it is an hours job only. But every time I have spend double the anticipated time :P. She is so talented to do it with the wink of an eye. But for rest of us, its a hard job.
I have always seen her work has a lot of detailing.It truely adds to the ‘Wow’ factor and makes her work look so real.Look at the details below, you will know what I am talking about.
For this nail art I used Streat Wear Pink as Base.I made all the socks and bows freehand.Outlining and deatiling and desiging the socks was a task. My God! It took good time and patience. But I am happy the way they turned out. I am kinna impressed with myself a little :).
I have made few modifications in the orignal nail art at places where I felt like. I changed the thumb and added Santa and Christmas Ho Ho. To me whats the point of hanging socks if there is no Santa to drop gifts 😛
Althought the design on the thumb may not add to the beauty of the nail art but it undoubtedly completes it. And this is what I wanted. A complete Christmas feel :).Do you get the feel I am talking about? Hows nail art for you? Does it scream christmas?
