Santa is here! Happy Holidays to all!
Here is my current manicure. I copied the santa and the suits from two different blogs and put them together today. I used my peach franken for the first time for Santa's face.
I love this red polish. It was an untried until I realized that it is the perfect Christmas red. It is Revlon Red Hot Tamale. It is opaque in one thin coat. This color is beautiful, just absolutely a beautiful red creme polish. I NEVER would go for wearing a red creme, but this one has convinced me I need to put this polish my life. I want to take this mani off and put another one with the same red and decorate all my nails again.
The white, black and gold are LA Colors stripers. The white is too thick now, but other than that I love these.
I wish all of you a happy holiday!

Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday

Merry Christmas to you! I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season this year.
I have some of my recent favorite Christmas-themed manicures for you.




My grandmother made the ornament which inspired this manicure.



Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday polish is a wonderful box of ornaments for a bare tree.

Emerald Sparkle by China Glaze is so absolutely stunning. I also used OPI Happy Anniversary and Bring on the Bling for background and garland, respectively.

Greetings from the Christmas Tree at the Beachcomber in Crystal Cove beach, CA. This past Sunday it was in the 80s and as you can see the weather was absolutely beautiful.
For Christmas this year I had a once in a lifetime "Hollywood" hair makeover. I told my husband all I wanted for Christmas this year is to get my hair cut by Peter Ishkhans a.k.a. "Peter Perfect". Since the appointment I have hardly stopped smiling because he gave me the best haircut EVER!!!! I don't know if I will ever let anyone else touch my hair again ever. He is such a wonderful talent! I look forward to seeing him again, in person and on tv! Thank you Peter!
Happy Holidays to you all!
