I wanted to do a fun, holidayish manicure that didn’t scream “CHRISTMAS” or “I AM A GENTILE” or “I AM A HUGE, JOLLY NERD”! My Holiday home decor reflects the color story I have chosen for this manicure. Soft blues, golds, and whites. This color scheme is festive and fun yet subtle and sophisticated. The finished product made me think of Holidays on a beach. Kind of fun.
Essie’s Parka Perfect, Topless and Barefoot, Good as Gold, and Blanc were my lucky participants. They compliment one another quite nicely! I decided to use my *dotting tool because I wanted to create a bokeh effect. Bokeh: the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens (I try to achieve Bokeh as frequently as possible while photographing). I am obsessed with Bokeh, dotting tools, and Nail art.
*A recent nail art obsession I have is the dotting tool. This bitch makes little polka dots, easily and perfectly like shown above. I plan to show you how to use this tool in a video to come.

Enjoy and paint your nails, ya hobos!
