I am so happy to announce that today is the first day of me and Kailyn's collaboration of, 12 Days of Inspired Christmas. In the 12 days you will get to know each of us a little better, with knowing what inspires us around the holiday season, and what the holidays mean to us. So make sure you check both of our blogs out for out days listed for exclusive inspiration. All along with leaving comments with what inspires you the most around the holiday seasons! The first 5 days of posting will be this week, starting today and ending on Friday! Other days are still to be determined!
For our first day of inspiration, we both decided to do a nail design. With all the decorations and displays, put up almost everywhere you go, this time of year. It is hard to not be inspired to do something different with your nails. But before I go into that a little bit more, I want to share with all of you what the holiday season means to me, and what inspires me the most.
The holiday season is always a time to spend with the ones you love. Even tho you have that maybe more than others through out the year, this time of year can be extra special. Christmas in my family is a time to be thankful for what you have and to look around and see all the people who love and support you no matter what. I am not saying my family is perfect at all, just like any other family we have our differences. But at Christmas nothing matters except sharing the love we all have for one another.
What inspires me the most this special time of year? It would have to be the display of trees I see no matter where I go. I love seeing every different and possible decor known to man, on a different tree from place to place. Your Christmas tree is a way to show your own touch of style, just like your outfits and your makeup! I also love how the weather changes, this is my favorite thing by far. I love having to pull my sweaters out, and my knee high boots. The fashion changes every season, but winter is the one where you can accessorize with things you can't all through out the year. Such as scarves, and boots, mittens/gloves, thicker leggings, and so on. There are so many things that inspire me alone this time of year. But you will see just what I mean through out these 12 days!!!
With my nail inspired design, I of course had to do the one thing that only is around on Christmas. A mistletoe! I love how beautiful they are just as a decoration, but I truly love the meaning of them. Who wouldn't want to be kissed by someone you love? A mistletoe gives you just that! Another thing that inspires me would have to be all of the glitter. I love how sparkly everything is when I look at displays across my local area. So I put a sparkly black as my base nail color. And I wanted to keep the mistletoe simple just as it should be. So I put my design on my ring finger, just a hint to put something all to do with love on that finger right?
The colors I used to create this look would be:
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No Chip Color in Black Diamond
