12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge: Day 5 - Holly/Wreaths

Sorry it took me so long to get this one up!  The nail on the middle finger on both of my hands broke, and I didn't get a chance to file my nails down to match until today.  So, here we are with Day 5: holly/wreath nails!  

I started with a 3 coats of Revero from Circus by Andrea's Choice. It's just a stark white; felt like I had white out on my nails, lol.  It was a bit streaky with the first coat, but evened out pretty well.  I feel like white nail polish is always streaky.  I haven't found one that isn't, yet!

After I got my base down, I started making a wreath on my accent nail using my LA Colors (Nail) Art Deco polishes.  I used green for the wreath, and a glittery red for the berries.  I thought doing a wreath on every nail wouldn't look so nice, so I decided to do holly on the other nails instead.  But when I was done, I thought there was too much blank space and I wasn't sure what to fill it with.  So I decided to try plaid, and that is what you see in the picture below.  Different levels of my thought process for the nail art for holly/wreath nails day.

Now that I look at it, I think the holly on its own (like on my pinkie) would have looked fine without adding anything to the blank space (like what I did for the pointer and middle).  But I don't mind the plaid either, but it probably would have looked loads better if it was on its own instead of with the holly.

Let me know what you think!  I'll have the Snowman nails up tomorrow, hopefully, and then I'll be caught up.  Thank goodness Lights/Ornaments is on Saturday.  I'll be done with finals by then, so I'll be able to work on them more and hopefully come up with something nice. :)
