Happy Holidays from the Long Lost Blogger

Hi... Long time no post... Again. I seem to be getting into a habit of going a month or more between posts; this is not good.
Hopefully this post is the beginning of more posts more often.

Let's start this off by saying that the day after Remembrance Day I was ready to start decorating for Christmas. Now I've got most things decorated for the holidays; my room, the tree, and even my nails. I don't go too overboard though... Just enough I think :)

Today I'd like to show you guys some seasonal nail art. There aren't a large amount of designs in this post, like I usually have, but the ones that are here are good ones.
For a while I got lazy when it came to doing my nails. Lately, however, I have been spending a lot more time on them, resulting in much fancier designs!

This first design is meant to look like a candy cane. I painted my nails a solid coat of white and then added bright red stripes using the thin edge of a makeup sponge. The sponge texture made them look messier. After that dried I added some silver sparkles over the stripes here and there.

Snowflakes are one of my favourite kinds of winter decoration; they're so pretty!
It seemed only reasonable to do a nail art design inspired by these cold little beauties. I used a dark purple solid coat and then using a small paint brush I painted on the delicate snowflakes. I definitely recommend buying the nail art polishes that come with the super thin brush instead of using a paint brush; I just didn't have any of those, but they are much easier to use to create designs like this. Since I love glitter around the holidays, I added little splotches of silver here and there on the snowflakes!

I personally love how both of these turned out!

Thanks for reading!

If you are curious about any of the polishes or techniques I used, comment on this post and I will answer as soon as possible :)
Also comment and let me know what you think, or leave links to your blogs so I can check them out!
More Christmas-ey blog posts coming your way in the next few weeks.
