Winter Nail Art Challenge – New Years

I’m 2 days late on this challenge. Apologies!!

Today is the final challenge in Winter NAC, and the theme is New Years!! *party hat* My thanks to Helena at Lacky Corner for hosting this challenge series!

Winter Nail Art Challenge – Gingerbread

I wanted to tap into the happy feel and bright candy colors of gingerbread decoration, so I stared with colorful backgrounds. I kept them light or pastel so the brown would show up.

 

I don’t actually own brown nail polish, though. When my friend visited and we did nail art, we found equal parts light green and orange with a dab of black make brown!

Today’s theme: Red & Green.

I’m prepping for a trip, so I didn’t have a lot of extra time, but I really wanted to join the first challenge I could, so I went with one of my favorite things to do variations of – French Nails.
