What Says Christmas More than Green and Red?

Today I have used China Glaze Outta Bounds and OPI Magazine Cover Mouse to do a stripe design. I was going to incorporate some gold as well but it didn't really work out.

I think it's such a Christmas combination! It reminds me of gift wrap.

The only thing I wish is that my lines were a bit more even; it would make the look cleaner. But overall I think this is a simple (ish) Christmas design. I like the contrast of the shiny green and textured red as well.

Happy painting friends!


  1. I really like the simplicity of this design. How did you get the lines so straight?
    And, do you have any tips for if I'm rushed for time how to get the polish to dry a little quicker? I usually paint my nails late at night after the kids are in bed but then sometimes I *think* they are dry but wake up with sheet prints in my once perfect nails. Tragedy!

    1. Thanks! I enjoy this design as well. I used nail striping tape to keep the lines straight but you could use scotch tape. Just be sure that your base colour in COMPLETELY dry before applying the tape.
      If you want your polish to dry quicker, apply a fast dry top coat. I really like Color Club top coat or Seche Vite top coat
