Candy Cane Tips

Hello, friends :) Another quick post today--comin' at you from my friend's laptop today, so I apologise for not being able to crop/colour-correct the photos as well. No fancy editing programs here! But I wanted to show you my second-to-last Christmas manicure--candy cane French tips with "icicle pieces" :)

Festive and tasty, except not actually tasty. Ignore the smudge on my index finger >.< that was me being too impatient and changing shirts too soon after painting.

French tip was done with Ulta Snow White... Red candy-stripes were added with red acrylic paint and a small paintbrush. The gold stripe is Stripe Rite gold glitter. That wasn't quite enough--I wanted a frosty, icicley look, so I dabbed on a bit of China Glaze Luxe And Lush, mostly on the bare part, just sweeping a bit over the tips. Seche Vite topcoat sealed it all in--had to use a couple thick coats to smooth out those flakes, but totally worth it. I really like this one :)

Isn't this candy cane pen cute? The ink smells of peppermint as well :D

With flash, for maximum sparkly *_*

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend :) xoxo
