12 Days of Christmas - Only Red & Green

Today kicks off yet another holiday challenge! This one will only be on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, but I hope to get some other random nail art and swatches done in between and on the weekends. I have so many holiday polishes to share too! 

Today's theme is only red & green. I was thinking of "cheating" and also using white, but I decided to just try and use only red and green. I initially thought of doing a white, red, and green water marble to look like peppermint, but I just kept it simple and sparkly! 

I started off by putting a piece of tape across each nail, and then painted the red on. I didn't want to put tape right on the red since I thought it would mess it up, so I just free handed the green in between. The lines aren't completely clean since I free handed, but I think they turned out alright. 

The polishes I used weren't sparkly though! I added some glitter on. I used Wet n Wild Jezebel for the red, and topped it with Wet n Wild Rockin' Rubies for some shine. I then free handed the green stripes with KleanColor Green Grass, and topped it with Nails Inc Piccadilly Arcade. 

The lines aren't perfect, but I love the way they turned out! They're definitely festive and bright, and are totally getting me geared up for December and the holiday season. They're also very sparkly in person, and you can see a hint of the holo in the photo below! 

As I mentioned above, this challenge will continue right up until Christmas! It isn't daily, but it still includes enough fun ideas for the entire season. 

Don't forget that plenty of other ladies are also participating!
