Okay, so I think I’m obsessed with Christmas tree nail art. 🎄 I seriously can’t get enough of them. This time I created some Christmas tree stamped nails using a design I didn’t even know I had! I was trying to create something new, & discovered on this plate I reviewed from the Summer that there was this cute tree pattern–perfect for Christmas nails! So obviously it meant I needed to try it out.
is manicure, the polishes used were:
- Base Coat: Nailtek 2
- Top Coat: Seche Vive
- China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald
- Essie Tuck It In My Tux
- Morgan Taylor Dreaming of Gleaming
- Morgan Taylor Silver in my Stocking
- Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate BPL015
- Clear Jelly Stamper (also from Born Pretty)
- NailStuff.ca reindeer studs
I really, really love how these turned out. i think they’re just so pretty. I tried out my hand at double stamping using silver under the green, but it’s very subtle. However it did make Emerald Fitzgerald pop a lot more, since it’s a little thin for stamping. Also, can we talk about these ADORABLE reindeer studs from NailStuff.ca? I used a whole lot of top coat to attach them to my nail & they lasted a whole day easily. Also they’re the cutest studs I’ve ever seen.

Happy Tuesday! Can you believe it’s only 6 days until Christmas?! I hope everyone else is more prepared than I am–although I did get out some Christmas cards & finished the wrapping for my sister’s family, so I’m not completely behind. Today I have another simple Christmas design that looks just like wrapping paper!
For this design, the polishes used were:
- Base Coat: Nailtek 2 Foundations
- Top Coat: Seche Vive
- Deborah Lippmann Through the Fire
- Ardene Ice Mist
- Zoya Ray
- L’Oréal Feeling Kilty
- The Base Coat Vinyls Triangle Pattern Stencil
- NailStuff.ca triangle stud — Gold Mixed Decoration Nail wheel
- Small dotting tool (to fill in the triangles)
I’m not going to lie–filling in each individual triangle was kind of time consuming but it is totally worth it! I’ve always been a fan of geometric designs, & I just love how these look. A dressed up Christmas design. & the little triangle stud mimics the look of the pattern but could also be a stand in for a Christmas tree. I just think these are so classy–don’t get me wrong, I love all Christmas designs. But I’ve had fun this year creating different designs that aren’t your typical Christmas looks.

Christmas came early for me as I received a parcel from Wrenn Polish on Monday. I have swatches coming on Sunday of all three shades I received, but in the meantime how about some sneak peak nail art featuring one of these gorgeous polishes! I was feeling some untraditional Christmas nails for decorating our house, so I picked Enchanted, a stunning pink linear holo, & decided to make it Christmas-y. I’ve always dreamed of having an all purple Christmas tree! This is probably as close as my husband will let me get haha.
For this manicure, the polishes used were:
- Base Coat: NailTek 2 Foundations
- Top Coat: Seche Vite
- Wrenn Polish Enchanted
- Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Troublemaker
- MyNailsDid Christmas Tree Vinyls
- Medium sized dotting tool
Can we just talk about how beautiful this polish is? If you read my previous post about the Wrenn polish shades I own, you’ll know I was very impressed with this Indie brand. Alissa makes just the most incredible shades & I love that they’re all inspired by her handcrafted jewelry. You’ll have to wait until Sunday to find out my thoughts on all three of the newly released shades I received, but spoiler I’m in love. The holo in Enchanted is beyond impressive. Even in the grey cloudy weather we’ve been having, it was hard not to stare at the shift. I have quite a few holo shades in my collection, but nothing like this!
If you want to get your hands on Wrenn Polish Enchanted, you can find it here.

Who doesn’t love candy canes at Christmas — whether it’s an actual candy cane (my favourite are those sour patch kids ones that used to sell years ago… not sure if you can still buy them) or in the form a candy cane hot chocolate or mocha. There is something about those extra sweet & sugary sticks that bring out your inner elf… even if you don’t really like Christmas all that much.
What do you think of these candy cane accent nails? Is this something you would wear for any of your holiday occasions. These would be super cute to wear to a Christmas party or Christmas concert!
