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.

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?
