Recent NOTD: Modern Christmas Mani

Here's what I had on my nails all last week; doesn't it look festive?



It's Orly Wandering Vine plus Cult Nails Clairvoyant, and I was quite pleased with the combination.



Here's a closer look a Clairvoyant (formerly known as Unicorn Puke in its limited edition phase), because it's quite worth looking at.



I did seven coats in all: OPI Nail Envy (Sensitive & Peeling), Instant Artificials, two coats Wandering Vine, two coats of Clairvoyant, and Sally Hansen Insta Dri topcoat.







I'm looking forward to trying Clairvoyant over other base colors, though that's going to have to wait a while because there are too many other things I want to do. I don't think I'm going to be one of those people who gets bored when they retire. I would retire tomorrow if I could afford it!

  3. I want to see how this compares to the Finger Paints flakies! My Sally's is apparently getting them in next week *fingers crossed!*

  4. I didn't like Unicorn Puke/Clairvoyant when I first saw it, but it's grown on me. I hope that one FP flakie is as close to it as it looks! I can't remember which one, Asylum or Twisted (btw, what's up with those names!?)

  9. It's so festive! It totally reminds me of house lights in the dark. We went to a local botanical garden that does all these crazy lights every year - it was extremely gorgeous, and it kind of reminds me of that!

  14. Thanks, everyone!

    Lindsey & Laura, I'm looking forward to those FP flakies, too--just hope I don't miss them since I won't be able to get to Sally's over the holiday week.

    Fingers, perhaps holiday season stress is getting to you? Do you have a fever?
