Candy Cane Forest

Greetings and Nailutations!

I'm carrying on with fun holiday manis.  Today I am onto Day 2 of Ehmkay Nails and Polished Lifting Winter Nail Art Challenge.  When I was trying to think of what candy to do, the movie Elf was on and Buddy had just "passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane Forest, through the sea of Swirly Twirly Gum Drops, and then through the Lincoln Tunnel."  I looked around at what stamping images I had and I had to go with the Candy Cane Forest!

Let's get to the details!  Photos shown in filtered light, LED light.

Products used:
Polish My Life - Little Red Dress
Moonflower Polish - Dia (acquired through Lantern and Wren press sample)
Ellagee Polish - Lickity Split Latex Mani Mask (press sample)
Clear Jelly Stamper - Big Bling Stamper (press sample)
LINA Nail Art Supplies - Can't Wait For Christmas 01 Plate (acquired through Lantern and Wren)
Cameo Colours Lacquers - Snowflakes On My Eyelashes
Glisten and Glow - Top Coat

I started with Dia on my 4 fingers and Little Red Dress on my pinky.  I used Can't Wait For Christmas 01 Plate with the cute little candy canes and stamped with Little Red Dress.  I wanted to add some fun sparkle, so I topped them all with Snowflakes On My Eyelashes and then top coat.

I love how these turned out and as soon as I created the mani, I headed for my wax collection to find a minty one to melt!  :)

Happy Holidays!
