Happy Holidays and Plaid Nails

'Tis the season to be jolly and joyous...FA LA LA! There's only two more sleeps 'till Christmas!

I haven't been able to get the Muppet song out of my head, and I'm probably driving everyone around me bonkers, but I'm so stinking excited for the next few days! Family dinners with to-die-for food, wine flowing like water, present bows and wrapping paper flying around the room like Harry Potter on his broomstick, and let's be serious...smiles and laughter shared with the people I love. This is what I look forward to year after year when Christmas comes around.

Today's post is going to be the last one before December 25 arrives, so before we get into the festive nail design, I want to send you all my warmest wishes for the holiday season. I hope your Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa - whichever holiday you celebrate - is filled with happiness and love.

I saw this Pretty in Plaid nail art idea while scrolling through Pinterest a little while ago, and thought it looked so neat and festive, so I decided to try it out myself! I used OPI's The Thrill of Brazil for the red base and OPI's Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow, a deep (almost black) olive green colour, over the top.


I used a small dotting tool to create the boxes on each nail and used a nail striper to create thin, diagonal lines connecting them together. I made a mistake by not leaving some areas blank, but I still like the end result.  


Happy Holidays!!
