Winter Holiday Challenge: Christmas Decoration

Hello my lovelies! First off, I would like to remind you about the Beauty Blogazon Holiday Giveaway, where you can win 5 100$ gift cards. There are less than 2 days left, so if you haven't entered yet, please hurry! I would really love for one (or more) of my followers to win! Secondly, I have a huge thank you to say because the blog reached 100 000 pageviews this week. I didn't have time to celebrate in any way, but I'm still very grateful to you all for coming over and looking at my nails every once in a while. Thank you so much! 

Today's post is another one of the Winter Holiday challenges. This time we had to do Christmas Decorations. I really wanted to draw something by hand, but the lack of time made me resort to stamping again. To make it up to you, I used some tinsel props for my photos. Hope you like them! 

As you can see, I did something really simple. This design reminds me of some of my Christmas tree decorations, and I really wanted to use my new Cheeky set I got for my birthday. It's the summer 2012 set and it's mostly funky designs, but this one looked very festive and elegant at the same time. 

The base color for this manicure is OPI Don't Mess With OPI, which is actually a spring polish. The lighter green color shows better in photos though, so I chose it over the darker, more Christmassy greens. I stamped with Orly Rage, which by the way stamps great. I'm glad I now have a good gold for stamping, and it's one that's more subtle and elegant compared to the one I usually use. The plate I used is CH52 from Cheeky.
