Wreath-lys fresh mint

Hey everyone. Today I have a fun Mani for you. Yes I know some of you are dying for the voting to start on the nail art contest but a few last minute entry attachments didn't come thru properly. *shakes fist at Gmail!* So I am patiently waiting to see if the entrants get the images to me before I just post what I have by tomorrow afternoon. If you sent in a Mani the last two days before the deadline please check your email to see if you were one of the unlucky people who's attachments didn't work.

Today's Mani has a base of Refresh Mint by China Glaze. To make the wreaths I used my dotting/ embossing tools and just made random dots in a circular pattern. For the wreaths branch color I used China Glaze- Outta Bounds. Next I took China Glaze- Party Hearty and dabbed it carefully over the branch areas.

For the bow on top I waited for Party Hearty to dry completely first, then took China Glaze- Jingle Bells and used a dotting tool again. I started by making a dot in the center of the top of the wreath. Next I made a triangle on each side of the dot with the point touching the dot. As you can see when I say triangle its really a triangle shape without the sharp edges.  To make the bow ribbon ends (since I have no idea what the technical term is) I made two lines coming off of dot.

I used OPI- Onyx to accent the bows so they look more three dimensional. Of course, I used Seche Vite top coat to seal everything up and make it all shiny.

Ok, well back to housework. Now that my homework is caught up, I have housework that has been neglected. Gotta luv life.

Happy Polishing!
