Underneath the Mistletoe


We're almost there folks, only two more sleeps to go!! I'm like a little kid this year, I just can't stop buying presents and planning Christmassy fun. I just can't wait to hand out all the prezzies I've been stockpiling - I keep forgetting what I've bought so it will be great fun watching everyone open them. John Lewis got it right with their Christmas ad a few years back - giving gifts is just as enjoyable as receiving them! I know Emma has got the giving bug too as I received a gorgeous MAC lippy from her as an early gift :)

 
Today's mistletoe design came about from some office doodling. It turns out it's a lot harder to draw than I thought it was so I ended up simplifying a fair bit. I used Rimmel - Pillow Talk* as a base and then painted on the mistletoe leaves using Round and Round the Garden. I hightlighted the leaves with a bit of Barry M - Spring Green and used their white nail are pen for the berries. Finally I added a big red bow at the top, although it annoys me that I didn't get the placement of this quite right. I used another Barry M nail art pen and filled it in with Rimmel - Mars*


Are you hoping for a special kiss under the mistletoe this Christmas?
 
Love,
