Holiday nail art: Stockings!

Today I have a very pretty polish to show you - butter London Henley Regatta! I picked this up in Nordstrom (whilst on holidays earlier this year) but hadn't gotten around to wearing it until this week. I layered it over Illamasqua Viridian and drew some stockings to get into the Christmas spirit:

Henley Regatta is a glitter polish with a clear base but it's oh so pretty:

I only needed one coat to get this effect:

Viridian is gorgeous on its own but combined with this polish, it's downright gorgeous!

So as usual I started with the thumb nail and I wasn't really sure where I was going but I decided to draw my name on the stocking :-) I was slightly inspired by the coke name thing:

So to start, I outlined the stockings with a small nail art brush and OPI Alpine Snow:

Next I filled the tops of the stockings:

Then with Illamasqua Throb filled the rest of the stockings:

Then I wrote names for the rest of the stockings and all done!

And while I was in the festive spirit, I decided to dress up the dining table a little since we aren't having a Christmas tree this year (we're spending Christmas with the in-laws). I started with things I had lying around the house then I wanted to get some plates and cups so I went shopping. And Target was having a sale so I ended up redoing it like this:

I wanted to get a few more things but I am poor this Christmas haha. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the post and the stockings! I'm growing a nice collection of butter London polishes and no doubt I will expand the collection! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and I'll see you next time!
