Nail Polish Canada Holiday Nail Art Challenge - Holiday Memories

Hi everyone!!

Time for week 3 of Nail Polish Canada's Nail Art Challenge!


This week's theme was Holiday Memories!  One thing that always sticks out in my mind is candy canes!!  As a kid, we got them in school, they hung on the Christmas tree, they were everywhere and I loved them!!  And my favorites were ALWAYS the original, not the other flavored and colorful ones that started coming out.

For this mani, I used Orly Au Champagne as the base and then created stripes with my nail art brush using the red creme of Essence Applause, Applause.  I wanted to add glitter to sparkle things up, so I used a nail art pen for that one.

What do you guys think?  What's your favorite holiday memory?

Please don't forget to vote for me here!  Thanks ;0).
