Ugly Christmas Sweater Mani, vote for me to win!

I love nail polish but I wouldn't consider this a nail blog in any way, shape or form!
However when Nail Polish Canada comes a knockin'.. you answer!

They challenged me to create a holiday mani to be put up against other holiday mani's and I was ALL in, even though I was scared. (LOL)

At last count I think I own 86 nail polish.. I do love my polish but a solid colour with an accent nail is normally my most elaborate.

I do own a nail art kit like this one (click) which comes in handy for the odd easy nail design.

The dotting tools are super easy to use so I knew right away - Holly berries would be my best bet.

During my first draft I thought it would be adorable to utilize Noelle's name (Noel) however, I grossly overestimated my talent. (LOLOL)

See my first attempt:

That just wouldn't do, so see my second attempt:

Ok, this one is better!
The pointer finger was suppose to be a candy cane but did not go as planned so I erased and tried one more time.

The final look!! ^

CND Vinylux Cream Puff $12
Ciate Nail Polish - Beach Hut $12  (similar. mine is 'all aglow' from Winners) Butter London Nail Lacquer Come to bed red $19 (similar. mine is Mac holiday collection 2013)
Julep Phoebe $14 (out of stock)
Seche Vite top coat $9.25 (one of my favs!!)

I'm no artist but I think this is pretty good for an amateur and its something you can recreate too! You know I love anything tacky & this mani is the perfect addition to your ugly Christmas sweater.

If you like it and like me.. could you please, please, please go vote for my mani over on the competition page/

I don't ask for much on the blog but I would really love to place for this one!
Something about my messy mani being recognized would feel lovely, plus there's $800 worth of prizes to be won! YAY (think of the IG unboxing!)
