Christmas 2017

Merry (belated) Christmas! 🎄🎅🎁
I’ve had a lot of stuff going on for the past week and a half and didn’t end up having time to do any Christmas nails until after the holiday was over 🙈 Regardless, I hope you guys like these holly nails and I hope you all had a nice holiday with your loved ones ❤️🎄

I've been planning Christmas nails for a good few months now, and even though I must have scrolled through hundreds of Christmas-y photos for inspiration, I kept coming back to the idea of holly and berries. I did a holly design a few years ago that ended up being pretty popular on Tumblr, and I wanted to do something along the same lines this year while making it look a bit more mature.
The print that I ended up using for inspiration is shown below (click photo for source):

I was going to write "Merry Christmas" on my thumbnail the way it's shown in the print, but I kind of botched the spacing on "Merry" and didn't have the time to redo the whole thing. So 4/5 nails were done for this design, but I feel like the other four nails make up for the missing thumb. I really like how this design turned out, and it was a pretty simple one for me to do.

Again, I hope everyone has had a lovely holiday season!
