Inspired by a Holiday Movie: A Christmas Story Nails

Hey everyone, I hope you've had a good weekend. It's been really rough on me, between the kids running me ragged and the horror stories in the news lately, it's been a little much for me. I've decided I need to stop paying attention to the news, it just freaks me out! And focus on the things that bring me joy - my kids, my nails, preparing for the holidays!

Which brings me to today's Holiday Nail Art Challenge: Inspired By A Holiday Movie. This one had me intimidated. Like, a lot. I asked my mom what I should do. Her answer? Two words. Leg. Lamp.

Viola, the "A Christmas Story" mani

I'm actually pretty proud of this, this was my first really art-intensive mani, and it came out okay!
All of this is on a base of 3 coats Nicole by OPI All About The Glam, for the art...On the thumb "Ooooohhhh Fuuuuudgggge", haha, classic! It's written on with China Glaze Liquid Leather. For the Red Ryder BB Gun - okay, full disclosure, I have no idea what the Red Ryder BB Gun was supposed to look like. Cut me some slack, it's been a year since I've seen the movie, and this was never a detail I payed much attention to. I do, however, have a basic idea of what a rifle looks like, so I went with that. I used NYC Sidewalkers and Pretty Serious Morning Java. For the "pink nightmare" I used Sinful Baby Doll, NYC Prospect Park Pink, Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream, and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away. Of course, the Leg Lamp! This is Sinful Baby Doll, Butter London West End Wonderland, and China Glaze Liquid Leather. The pinkie. Okay, this one might have been a stretch. There is a wreath on the cover of the movie, so, yeah, I was reaching, lol. Surprise surprise, it's Color Club Ho Ho Holly and Berry and Bright.

Wow, that was a lot. If you're still with me, congrats on making it through all of that!

Next time is Holly!

Til next time,
