Advent Calendar Nail Challenge, Day 11: Gifts

Hi everyone!  I realize that with this challenge I've been posting later and later in the day. For the past couple of days I've been doing my nail art in the evening, followed by photographing, editing, and then writing my blog post. By doing this, I'm trying to not let the nail art and the challenge in general encroach on my work time (I work from home so it's easy for that to happen). But tonight I'm later than usual because I went out for drinks with a friend. But this also means that I'm getting to sleep later, and waking up later, and on and on.

What I am really trying to say is that I need to figure out a blogging schedule. I feel like I have not been able to focus as much on work because of this late night madness.

So for the sake of time, I did a really simple mani for today's challenge. I was inspired by this mani I saw on Goose's Glitter. I also wanted to wear my new Illamasqua Viridian / Glitterati duo, but not have the nail art overshadow these beautiful polishes.

I did the bow with Orly Luxe  and a small detail brush. My freehand skills are getting a tad better, but I still feel uncertain and shaky handed when I am working with the brush.

I absolutely love these Illamasqua polishes and I'm hoping to do a proper review of them soon. They certainly deserve more time than I can give them tonight. For now, I hope you enjoy the photos. :)
