Silver Christmas Tree

Today I have a cute, simple mani to share that is perfect if you want something "holiday-ish" but are tired of the typical holiday colors.

 This is Zoya Savita (matte polish) and I used Sally Hansen InstaDri in Silver Sweep to stamp the tree design from Konad plate m12 onto my ring fingers.  Then I took OPI Crown Me Already and sponged the tips.

I really like how this mani came out, especially the matte look, which I don't usually like often, but it really works for this, in my opinion...BUT I decided to see what it would look like shiny anyway, and here's the result of adding Zoya sparkle gloss top coat...

Yeah, I definitely liked it matte better...but it's still pretty.

What do you think of alternative colors for holiday manis?

  7. I LOVE this mani!! I am a huge fan of matte polishes and I hate christmas so its perfect for me! I love that you used non-traditional xmas colors too, so tired of the red/green/glittery combos I've been seeing all month. Very sophisticated. I gave this mani an A+++ - Fantastic job E!
