Here's another set of NOTDs from the Advent Calendar Nail Challenge (Happy Hands/Kristi's Advent Calendar Nail Challenge):
Day 6. White: Essie Marshmallow (2 coats as the base), Lynnderella Love, Lace, and Lilacs (1 coat), OPI Don't Touch My Tutu (1 coat overtop) - I loved this combination :) It's a little hard to wear Lynnderella LLL on its own over a jelly white (it just doesn't look pleasing to my eye), but a single coat of the OPI really tones it down for me!
Day 8. Starry Night: an Essie SSN franken (2 coats) - I know, I'm such a cheat for using this as the 'Starry Night' polish XD
Here's the recipe for the franken, from my friend: "And it is indeed about 3/4 Essie Silver Boullions, then enough WnW Nocturnal to get it the right color, probably 4-5 or so drops of black, and then I finished filling it up with the remaining Silver Boullions (it was SUCH an exact science ) I just added the black a little at a time, until it looked right!"
Day 9. Pine: CrowsToes Jingle Balls (1 coat) over Illamasqua Rampage (3 coats) - I am in- freaking-love with this combination. It is so deep and dark, but bright and shiny! I usually dislike large holo glitters, but I really like them in this polish!! If you missed the swatches of CrowsToes Christmas collection, you can see them here. Sorry it looks a little linty... this is after a couple days of wear :)
I'm probably going to flunk out of the rest of the challenge, though, as I'm absolutely useless at nail art.
And a little preview: some collective nail mail over the last couple of weeks, from Zoya, HSN, blog sales, Etsy, and swaps! I can't wait to get some time to swatch these, but I'm feeling burdened by the amount of holiday baking I have yet to start :S
