12 Days of Christmas - Santa

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate! And for those who don't, Happy Holidays! It's Christmas Eve, but this is the last day of the 12 Days of Christmas challenge, so we're ending with Santa himself!

I made some silly, cartoon looking Santas. I didn't want to just do his face or his hat on every nail, so I decided to do a different bit on each one. I did his hat on the pinkie, his face on my ring, his suit on my middle, and "ho ho ho" on my index. I suppose I could have done Santa's legs and boots instead of "ho ho ho," but I thought the words were fitting for the Santa theme.

I started off by painting my index and middle red, and my ring and pinkie nude. I then free handed santa's hat on both the ring and pinkie, and began dotting the white on everything. I then carefully painted the belt and belt buckle on, and outlined the hat since I didn't like the nude background for it.

Colors used: OPI Red, Elf Nude, Wet n Wild French White Creme, Wet n Wild Black Creme, and nail art polishes in White, Charcoal, and Gold Rush.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! My little Santa looks so happy, and I love how the belt and his coat turned out. These are certainly some festive nails! 

On to the final challenge for everyone else as well:
