Sinterklaas and Present Manicure
Good morning, dear readers!! :D
I hope that everyone had a great day yesterday, which is Sinterklaas day (St. Nicholas' Eve) in the Netherlands. My grandmother moved to Canada from Holland, and when I was a child my sister and I would put shoes outside our doors at night, and in the morning they would have candy in them (it is a Dutch tradition, and we had wooden shoes we could use :D).
I love the Christmas season and the yummy treats we get from a Dutch grocery in the city (taai taai, spekken, speculaas, marzipan in shapes of fruits and animals). It brings back warm memories for me, and the older I get the more I appreciate this time of the year. :)
For today's manicure I have a present themed design. This manicure is far from perfect and is a bit messy, as I made it on one of those days where nothing you do on your nails looks right. >.<; The red polish is Color Club Berry and Bright, and the green polish is Color Club O-Ho-Holly (both from this years holiday collection).
Other than those two polishes, I used several colours of acrylic paint. The two Color Clubs are absolutely amazing!!! They look stunning in real life, and the formula with them is so incredibly good! They have a really nice amount of pigment, so these can be two coaters (I think the red could be a one coater depending on how you apply it). I got these two in a set at Winners, so they are the un-scented versions of these polishes (yay!). :D
What are some of your favourite red and green polishes?
Have a wonderful day!!
