White Christmas | #MonthlyMani December

December 16, 2014

December’s #MonthlyMani theme is “Winter Wonderland.”  Naturally, I chose to base my manicure around my favorite holiday movie, White Christmas.

At first, it took me a while to decide on a design for my nails; but, after playing around with different concepts and combinations of colors, I decided that simple would be best.

#MonthlyMani Winter White & Glitter

I found this pretty silver/white glitter in my favorite polish – Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure – and I just had to have it!  The glitter adds just enough sparkle to really make this manicure pop.  It’s subtle, but still fun, and I love the way it catches the light.

I have a confession to make, however.  This is my first time wearing all white polish on my nails.  I have seen white manicures a million times before, but I have been too afraid to try it myself, until now.  And I LOVE it!  Here are the polishes:

What’s your favorite shade to wear during the holiday season?  Do you wear white during winter??

As always, thanks for reading!

Delightfully, Kristi

    As I already said on Instagram, this is so beautiful!!! And paired with the ring this mani is taken to the next level. P.S. Love the ring, where did you get it?

    I love silver, gold, blue and of course red and green during the winter!

      Thank you!!! This ring is probably my absolute favorite ring I own for many reasons, not the least of which is the fact that it’s vintage and I got it on Etsy for like $10! :)

      Silver & gold are some of my favorite shades for New Year’s (along with ANY glitter, of course!) and red and green are definite holiday classics! ;)

    I love how we both thought to do a lovely white! So snowy and pretty! You’ll have to add a little snowman when one of your nails chip haha :)

      Ditto!! And that is a GENIUS idea! I will totally add a snowman when my nails chip (because with me it’s definitely when and not if haha)!! ;)

          For sure!! (Although hopefully this mani will last awhile so I won’t need to add a snowman right away! ;))
