Digit-al Dozen: A Birthday Is In My Home

Greetings and Nailutations,

It is now day 4 of a Digit-al Dozen week and the theme is My Home.  Since it's near Christmas you will be getting manis inspired by my Christmas tree ornaments this week - because the tree is in my home!  :)  Today my mani is inspired by my very first ornament.  That is right, this ornament is 40 years old...because TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!


Let's get to the details.

Products used:
Ellison's Organics - Paint It All Clover
China Glaze - White on White
Zoya - Forest
Bluebird Lacquer - Ambrocrombie and Fitch, Molecular Brology (press sample)
Glisten and Glow - Top Coat

I started with White on White and topped with with Paint It All Clover.  The pine boughs and mistletoe were hand painted.  Everything is topped with a shiny top coat.








This is the oldest ornament I have, it is in amazing condition because after the holidays, I wrap it in tissue paper and then bubble wrap (you know that bubble wrap from nail polish packages? it works GREAT for ornaments!).  This was my very first ornament I ever owned, so it means a lot and I want it to last another 40 years.  :)

Thanks for reading!  Be sure to check out the other manis below, I have been loving what the other gals from the Digit-al Dozen have been coming up with.
