Happy “Christmas is 2 Days Away”, everybody! Hope you are having a wonderful time (even if Christmas isn’t on your radar)!!
Today’s nail art challenge was titled Tinsel/Ornaments – so I thought I’d try both… although (as you seen in the header) apparently or was an option. 🙂
Well, if you’ve seen Zorro, today’s art may harken you back to it –
Zorro, the mask-ed swordsman
Had a very brilliant steed
And if he ever saw a don
He would start to pick up speed
Then one Mexican Revolution
Original Zorro came to say
Alejandro, with your zeal so bright
Won’t you take my place tonight?
(to the tune of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 🙂 )
Well, in the Zorro movie, he would be riding along, making chaos, defeating evil and saving the people and then he would want to make his mark (literally) so as to rally the forces and scare the hearts of the enemies, so he would carve a 3-mark,-big-Z into whatever was around with his sword.
However, these (accidental) Z’s are something more Christmas-ey – Tinsel! 😀
My accent nails are ornaments. I was unsure if I could make a non-descript circle look like a 3-D ornament, but I was surprised at how they turned out. Pleasantly, that is. 🙂
Hope you enjoy, too!
Oh, and I did red on one hand on not the other, just because.
I like the red, though 🙂
These nails look rather good in real life, more so than in pictures, I think, because the tinsel is raised. I think it makes it sort of 3-D. I wanted to try to show that… thus, this picture:
Pixlr (the desktop app version) had this really cool overlay. It fit perfectly over and under my nails, I couldn’t believe it!
Oh, and something a little funny – remember me mentioning how my nails just won’t “solidify”, even after applying a top coat? I discovered a couple days ago, that my “top coat” was actually a “clear coat” — just normal polish, but clear. Ohhhh…

Do you have a special ornament that you always take out at Christmas?
Real or artificial Christmas trees – where do you stand?
Do you have a cat that wrecks your decorations or climbs your tree? I’ve seen so many AFV episodes and LOLcats about it, but never seen it for myself, so I was curious 🙂 …
