Ornament Half Moons

There's still a bit of time left to squeeze in some holiday nail art! Today's design is intended to look like sparkly, glitter-embellished ornaments hanging on a tree. I chose to use the half moon technique to make the ornaments. You can find an example of how to do them in my extremely old post found here.

The bases of the ornaments are (from pinky to thumb) Illamasqua Baptiste, Nicole by OPI Pretty In Plum, MAC Hyper, LCN Ruby Red, and OPI Deutsche You Want Me Baby. The green of the "tree" is mostly Zoya Logan with little bits of China Glaze Running In Circles brushed on. The gold glitter on the ornaments is China Glaze I Herd That, the gold attacher pieces between the hook and the ornament were done in Zoya Ziv, and the hooks are Color Club Worth the Risque.

This didn't end up quite as I envisioned it, but it has grown on me a bit. I do kind of wish that I had done the ornaments in plain creme shades... with all the glitter, flecks, holo, and metallic finishes going on, they seem to get a bit muddled. Still though, quite festive! :)
