12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge: Wrapping Paper/Presents

Today was our last day of classes this semester, I can't believe it! It seems like just yesterday we were all introducing ourselves at the front of the class and now our finals are right around the corner!

We did a therapeutic massage lab today and practiced on one another… Excellent choice by our professors to wait to do this lab until finals week because everyone was getting really tense and it was a way to relax and have a bit of fun :)

Anyways… today's challenge theme is wrapping paper/ presents and I decided to do a quick and simple mani…

I started with a polish I picked up at Suzy Shier on black friday… it doesn't actually have a name. Second, I stamped on the presents from BM-205 with red and green polish. I painted over the red and green with Finger Paints Framed in Red and Sketch N Etch to give it a bit of a shimmer. Then I painted over the ribbon and bows using Pier 1 Imports Platinum Spark (gold ribbons for the red parcels) and Bonita Chrome My Nail (silver ribbons for the green parcels). I finished it off by adding some white polka dots using Finger Paints Paper Mache. 

Don't forget to stop by Nailed It NZ to see what the other ladies came up with for today's challenge :) 

Well… back to the books I suppose…
