reindeer - Holiday Winter Challenge

The reindeer were a lot of fun to do and while technically I missed the sleigh out I just had to attempt these reindeer. I followed the tutorial by Simply Rins and made a couple of adjustments to suit me better.

The base colour is Milky Ways by Lime Crime - I still love this brand for their rich colours and ease of use. I used e.l.f Innocent for the reindeer heads, e.l.f smoky brown for their antlers, their cheeks are dots of Opi mod about you and Rudolph's nose is Sally Hansen ruby stilettos.

I think they are so very cute and am super grateful Rina did the amazing tutorial for them.

 Then... I thought they were looking lonely so decided to add an attempt at Santa and an Elf. I like how they both turned out but wish I had done the elf's face a different colour as his ears don't stand out as well as I'd hoped.

Santa used - Essie First dance for his hat, one coat of Zoya Grace over Orly white out for his face, Orly white out then Essence sparkling water lily dotted over for his hat trim and painted on his beard to add texture. Elf used - Opi - mod about you for his face, Nubar Reef green for his hat and then I used a red nail art pen for the trim but I am disappointed that that came out more brown looking.

I do love them though and love the super Christmas buzz I get from looking at my nails :)

Have a safe weekend.
