Getting Ready for Christmas: Christmas Movie Inspired

Hello my lovelies! It's Christmas Eve! To all of you who are celebrating, I wish a very merry Christmas! For today's entry in the Getting Ready for Christmas challenge we had to do a manicure or a makeup look inspired by a Christmas movie. Of course I chose to do a manicure, the only problem was picking a movie. There are many traditional holiday movies that involve Santa and so on, but the one that I watch every single year is Love Actually. I usually watch it 5 weeks before Christmas, which is when the action in the movie starts, but this year I didn't have time so I saved it for Christmas day. I can't wait to watch it! The manicure I created is very simple because I got inspired by the poster of the movie. 

I used a white base (Sation Strumming my Nails) and then freehanded the bows with Rimmel Stand to Attention and a bunch of nail art brushes. I think this kind of nail art is very easy to create and you don't need a lot of skill. For the ring finger I got inspired by an alternative poster that I found here. I used the same colors and I stamped the snowflake from plate m59 with Konad White. 

I took a few pictures with the movie DVD, although it's quite big and hard to fit in my lightbox. Hope you like the result! 

I think this is a very cute manicure and I loved wearing it. It's a great look for the holidays! I'm very curious about the other entries for this theme that you can see too if you follow Elsa's Facebook page. I only have one more theme to post and hope to do it tomorrow so stay tuned! 


  1. I looooove that movie! I already watched it this year, I can't spend a Christmas without watching it at least twice XD
