If you know anything about me, it’s that Christmas is my favorite Holiday of the year.  While I am a busy mom – I try my best to get in the festive spirit as much as possible, even if it means that I only have time for a quick makeup look or holiday inspired nails.  A few days ago I saw a post on Ipsy’s Facebook Page of gorgeous nails done by another person and I fell in love with the look.  After recreating it myself on my own nails today – I decided I would look up her blog/website and now I am a fan of her work.  You can find  her blog here: http://winkandblush.com/glitter-ombre-tutorial-quick-nails/.  I wish I took the time to find her blog earlier because I would have gotten a step by step of how she created the look, but regardless, it was fairly simple and a design I have done before using other colors – so I was pretty happy with the outcome.

As I mentioned in previous nail posts with glitter… I absolutely love Gold glitter or tinsel in any shape.  This time of year during the Christmas Holidays – gold glitter really adds that extra sparkle and gives any color you use an added Holiday-ish look.

I took the photo above in natural lighting a few hours after the other photos to see how the colors transitioned in the light.  What I love so much about ELF’s Gold Star glitter is that it has those cool Hexagon shaped glitters that really reflect different tones depending on the light.  Those hex glitters caught the light shining on the sky and the grass around me and it really reflected back onto the glitter giving the image a cool effect.
