My Christmas mani

I've been loving all the awesome cuticle, glitter gradients that have been popping up lately, and thought I should do one  for my Christmas mani. Picking my base did not take long, and no- it's not Ruby Pumps or Emerald Sparkle.
I chose Orly, Iron Butterfly for the base and for my glitters- Cover Girl, City Lights (Micro Holo) and LA Girl Rock Star, Super Nova (Bar Holo). Not a typical holiday mani- I know! The "dark side" has been a part of my entire adult life, and no matter how many colors I have in my collection, and how much I love them, black is what I'm most comfortable with.
This would have turned out much better if I had layered City Lights over Supernova, which has a black jelly base canceled out a lot of the holo in CL.
Merry Christmas everyone!

I love it! It's really original, not your ordinary Ruby Pumps/Emerald Sparkle Christmas mani. =)
