Blogmas Day 14: Nail DIY "Presents"

Merry Presents Day!

When I was a kid, I remember, the excitement of spotting a new present under the tree. I would shake it, peek into gaps, and play mindless guessing games. As I look back now, I wonder what was more exciting, the anticipation of "what it could be", verses the actual present. 
Today's Nail DIY is in celebration of presents, not as objects, but by the mystery and excitement they bring. This year, before ripping, and shredding the gift wrap, take a moment to appreciate the excitement of the unknown. 

What you will need:
1. silver nail polish
2. 5 different color nail polish (optional) 
3. a toothpick
4. plastic bag
5. scissors

Step 1:
Paint all nails silver, and let dry.

Step 2:
Paint each nail a different color, while leaving a border of silver nail polish exposed. Let dry.

Step 3: Take your tooth pick and cut the pointed tip off. 
Step 4: Take your silver polish and dab two drops on your plastic bag. 
Step 5: Take your tooth pick and make a cross (+) on all nails. 
Step 6: Finally, draw a bow in the enter of each nail. This can be done by two large dots plus two tiny      flicks. 




  1. Lovely nails! So festive :)
