The Grinch

Hi everyone! Today I have some more Christmas nails for you and this is definitely my favourite festive mani so far! 

I like the film The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and thought why not do some Grinch nail art? It's a nice change from the Christmas trees and snowflakes etc. 

The Grinch - OPI I'm Not Really A Waitress & 6 Harts Rabbit Food

I started out with 2 coats of OPI's I'm Not Really A Waitress, which is a classic, slightly metallic red and one of OPI's most classic colours. I really love this shade and got lots of compliments on the colour before I decorated it. So if you are still searching for a great red, I'd recommend giving this one a go! The formula was lovely and application a breeze.

I then added 2 coats of 6 Harts Rabbit Food to all of my nails except my ring fingernail. This polish is truly unique in my stash and I love it. Courtney, the lady behind 6 Harts is lovely and her customer service is wonderful. She creates such unique polishes and I don't think I see them being talked about enough! Rabbit Food is a clear-based glitter polish full of a variety of light green and white glitter. Courney describes her polish as 'an odd has lots of pale green dot glitters, grey and white matte glitters and some other goodies tossed in for sparkle. It will look great over a variety of colors, since the glitters are mostly neutral- but SPARKLY!' 

6 Harts Rabbit Food - Macro Bottle Shot

I thought Rabbit Food, although not intentionally a Christmas glitter, would look festive over red. I wasn't wrong and it was the perfect choice for the nail art I had in mind. Formula and application were great, the base is a little thicker than some but plenty of glitter comes out on the brush with minimal effort and very little placing was required.

For my accent nail, I used a fine detail brush and acrylic paints to freehand the Grinch! I love how he turned out and he goes perfectly with the light green glitter in Rabbit Food.
