Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum


Trying to do Christmas manicures from until Christmas day, hope that's cool with y'all! :) Today's is based on the song 'Little Drummer Boy'. I am completely enamored with the Milani 1-coat glitters right now, so I apologize for overusing them! :-D I thought that Red Sparkle would be PERFECT for the drum body!! The gold polish over it shows you what the texture of that polish is like though... very bumpy!



I used Milani Red Sparkle as a base, with China Glaze 2030 from Khrome Collection for the gold, mixed with American Apparel Hassid to shade. For the holly, I used BB Couture Poison Ivy for the leaves, and ORLY Candy Cane Lane for the berries. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Rat-a-tat-tat on your dum-dum-drum. (Can't get that damn song out of my head!)

  2. Beautiful!

    You know, the way you shaded the gold bits... I feel like you could use that to do sort of an aged, greased metal steampunk look. You know how some steampunk stuff has that grungy metal look to it? That would be such a cool look!

  5. I'm a little late, perhaps, on this comment, but I wanted to say that I love how even though your 365 challenge is over, you still keep posting. Your nails designs have inspired me to have fun with MY nails, which in turn, has inspired some of the girls I work with to have fun with THEIR nails! Yay!
