Holiday Bells

(Please note that the giveaway winner will be announced tomorrow)

I learned several things while working on the nail art for today's challenge prompt. First, I learned that I prefer MASH or Konad plates to Bundle Monster. They just seem to have a clearer image. The second is that tiny bows are very very difficult to get just right.

Here's my best go at a holiday bell manicure. I started out with piCture pOlish Kryptonite and stamped on it with BM-302 and Essie Good As Gold (from the mirror metallics collection). The bow details on top of the bell wouldn't transfer to my nails for the life of me, so I decided to color the bows red. Once they were red the color of the bells looked a little flat so I added SpaRitual Solstice over the bells. After all of this the original details from the stamp were lost so I outlined everything in black with a small paintbrush and added a few more details. They aren't even across all of my nails, but it's hardly noticeable in person. :)

I really like the finished product but it just goes to show that sometimes even what seems like a failed mani at first can turn into something fun!
