Glitzy Gift Wrapped Nails

Today's #whatruwearingwed nail art design is the second nail art entry for NPQ's 12 Days of Christmas nail art challenge: "Eleven Pretty Presents".  I personally like my presents wrapped in fancy papers with big bows.

Base and top coat
Glitter polish
Red polish
Black polish
Stripping brush

I started this design off with Milani 'Gold Glitz.'  I found this polish recently at my local dollar store and couldn't pass it up.  If you have a dollar store near you I recommend you check it out periodically.  I was really amazed to find this gorgeous glittery gold there.  This is a two coat application.

I then used China Glaze 'Seeing Red' from the Giver collection and a stripping brush to draw horizontal lines across my nails.  I drew this slightly higher than I would for a french tip but not quite at the mid point of my nail.

On my accent finger, in this case my ring finger, I drew a vertical strip down the middle of my nail with the same red.

I then began drawing a bow in the red polish in the middle of my t-shape on my ring finger.  I started the bow of by drawing an x-shape over the center of the t-shape.  I then enclosed the ends of the x-shape and filled it in.

I finished off the look by using Sinful Colors 'Black on Black' and the same stripping brush I used previously to outline my ribbon and bow.

These nails are so cutely wrapped, ready to be set under the Christmas tree.  Now I just need to get my Christmas tree.  Don't forget to head over to my Facebook page and post your #whatruwearingwed manicure.  You can also use the previously mention hashtag on Instagram, and tag me @polish_plebe in the comments so that I can find it easily.  Please be sure to like and follow me while you're there.
