Christmas Nails: Holiday Cheer!

Today we are heading off to Whistler for a mini pre-Christmas trip! We'll do some hiking, snowshoeing, and enjoying the winter wonderland while trying to avoid being run over by packs of rabid skiers. I actually haven't even checked the weather yet but hopefully we're not due for just straight rain for the next 2 days... that'd be a bit of a pre-Christmas bummer.

I didn't think there'd be much time to post any other blogs between now and Christmas so these may be my final Christmas nails. I hope they make you merry.

There are a ton of great Christmasy colors in my stash of polishes, so it was hard to choose which reds and greens would go into this look. Here are the colors that ended up on my nails: Ruby Jewels by Milani, Envy by Sinful Colors, Gold/Green from Love & Beauty, and A List by Essie.

Have I mentioned how much I love Milani's Ruby Jewels polish? (I have.) It's the perfect "Dorothy's ruby slippers" polish... so keep that in your sneaker for the next time you're looking for the right colors for your Wizard of Oz themed nails...

Which do you like better?

I bought my first pair of snowshoes yesterday at MEC in Vancouver. In the past I've just rented snowshoes or borrowed Dave's. Now I have my own and am officially a big girl. #Score. I'm excited to break them in today in Whistler!

What are your Christmas plans? After we get back from Whistler, I'm looking forward to a day of at-home cooking (mostly by Dave), hot cocoa, and all-day movies on Wednesday. There are lots of small presents wrapped beneath our tree right now and I can't wait to dig in and unwrap them on Christmas morning - even if I bought/wrapped most of them myself!! HAHA! Is that weird? When I was a kid there were always PILES of presents beneath the tree, and it's pretty important to retain that feeling as I get older... don't you think?? The piles may be a lot smaller now, but they're still piles. ;)

Merry Christmas errrrrr'body!!

  1. Perfect for Christmas! Now you have me trying to squeeze in a manicure for today. So festive!

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!!! I LOVE the Milani red color. It reminds me of Sally Hansen's Extreme Wear in "Red Carpet". And the glitter gives it a nice holiday pop!

    1. I'm in love with this red polish!! It's hard for me to find Milani polishes around where I live now though, so it's good to know there's a Sally Hansen dupe floating around! Thanks for the tip :)

  3. Yay! They're both fun (I didn't realize the gold glitter had green in it until I saw your red thumb!). I hope you have oodles of fun in Whistler. I've never been, but I hear great things about it (winter AND summer). :)

  4. The blog was absolutely fantastic! Lot of information is helpful in some or the other way. Keep updating the blog, looking forward for more content.



Leave me some love!
