The Digital Dozen does Winter Wonderland - Day 3: Vintage Ornaments

Nothing to Disclose

Hello, all! We're moving right along with Digital Dozen week and I've got my Day 3 look to share with you today! I'm finding myself struggling to come up with manis that aren't pine trees covered in snow (like my day 1 and 2 looks...) so I decided to search the pinterest and my favorite pattern sites for some wintery themed patterns.

After a little bit of searching, I found this super cute ornament pattern and was immediately drawn by the cute penguins and color palette. While I wasn't able to fit the penguins into the print, I like the updated vintage feel of these.

I've missed doing patterns like this so it was really refreshing for me to sit down to work on this. I do wish some of my lines were a bit tighter, but overall, I'm enjoying this one.

I used one of my trusty favorite base polishes for this one, OPI's My Vampire is Buff, and used a mix of polish and acrylic paints for the detailing. The teal is Essie's Ruffles & Feathers and the acrylic paints are Americana brand.

Overall, I do like this look, but I don't know that it's my favorite of the week (that would have to be yesterday's look!). I think I've got to get my hands on this paper to do all my gift wrapping with! I quite like it :)

Happy Polishing :)
