Twas the Day Before Christmas...

Day 72

...and all the through the house.... I did the Christmas poem on my nails!

I used

Right Thumb: Twas the Night Before Xmas...

OPI Russian Navy Suede as a base, with China Glaze White on White for the moon.

Right Index:...and all through the house

OPI Russian Navy Suede as a base, with OPI Ginger Bells, China Glaze White on White, and China Glaze Liquid Leather for the house.

Right Middle: Not a Creature was stirring, not even a mouse! (unfortunately you cant see the mouse well in the photos! :( just his pink nose!

Nubar Milk Chocolate Creme as a base, with China Glaze Liquid Leather for the floor and lines, OPI You Don't Know Jacques Matte for the mouse, and a mix of China Glaze White on White and China Glaze Salsa for his nose. :)

Right Ring: WHICH IS ACCIDENTALLY upside down!!! The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

China Glaze Liquid Leather as base, with OPI Ginger Bells for the brick fireplace, Zoya Pippa, Sally Hanson Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in 06 Sun Kissed, and China Glaze Salsa for the fire, China Glaze Salsa for the stocking with China Glaze Emerald Sparkle border, and China Glaze White on White for the mortar on the bricks.

Right Pinky: The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

OPI Russian Navy Suede as a base, with China Glaze White on White for the Zs.

Left Pinky: While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads. And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

Barielle Grape Escape as base with both OPI Parlez Vous OPI? and China Glaze White on White applied with a sponge to make it look sugary. lol

Left Ring: When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

OPI Russian Navy Suede as a base, with OPI You Don't Know Jacques Matte for the window panes, China Glaze White on White for the snow, and OPI Ginger Bells for the walls.

Left Middle: The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below. When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.

OPI Russian Navy Suede as a base, with China Glaze Salsa, BB Couture Poison Ivy and OPI Dazzled by Hold for the sleigh, and China Glaze White on White for the snow.

Left index: With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

"Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys, and St Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

China Glaze Salsa as a base, China Glaze White on White for the fur, China Glaze Liquid Leather for the belt, Zoya Pippa with OPI Dazzled By Gold over it for the belt buckle.

Left Thumb: But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

China Glaze Ruby Pumps as a base, with China Glaze White on White for the writing.

Everything was topped off with two coats of Seche Vite top coat
