The Digit-al Dozen does Holo: Holoday Nails Day 2

Hey friends! I hope your week is off to a good start. It’s Tuesday and I am continuing  the Digital Dozen Holo Week. If you’re just tuning in the Digital Dozen is  a small group of highly skilled nail artists and bloggers that get together the second week of each month to create 5 manis designed after one centralized theme.  I’m all into the christmas spirit this year so I knew right away I wanted to do Holo-day Manis!

I will start by saying I cheated just a little bit on this mani. I really wanted to do Grinch nails but I have no grinch stamping plates, and I wasn’t about to try to freehand it. So I jumped on ebay and found some grinch water decals. Just the grinch face is a water decal, everything else is my own work.

I started with 2 coats of Chasing a Unicorn (white holo) on my middle fingers and 2 coats of Starlight Polish Poinsettia on my index and pinky. I added the Grinch water decal, then for the tree I did some reverse stamping with matching the tree color to the grinch. The other nails I used a detail brush to paint the white wavy lines that represent his santa suit.

Items used:

  • CbL Chasing a Unicorn
  • Starlight Polish Poinsettia
  • Glam Polish No More Caffeine for You
  • Painted Polish Midnight Mischief
  • Grinch Water Decal
  • UberChic Holiday Jingle
  • Nail Art Detail Brush
  • Clear Jelly Stamper

Hope you enjoyed todays mani! I love how it turned out, and I’m not even feeling guilty for using a water decal. It gave me exactly the look I was going for. Do you ever use water decals? Did you like my grinch nails?
