Earlier this week I combined two challenges - Reindeer for #clairestelle8dec and Ugly Sweater for #30daysofcolourchallenge.
But first, Scar! I was trying to avoid all the excitement of the Paint the Rainbow boxes, but then I saw swatches of Bear Pawlish Scar from the November box - the likelihood of picking one of these up on the sales pages seemed slim so I weakened and bought the box- not that I didn't like the box, I was just trying to be sensible and I have rehomed one so I feel a bit better.
Anyway, Scar is the most stunning bright green holo with little green flakies in it. It is everything you could want in a bright green holo polish! This is the first Bear I have used, I do have another one but as yet only swatched. This applied beautifully giving great coverage with two coats. Pictures are taken with top coat, and I used the flash for the last two since the sun was nowhere to be seen.
After a day of loving this polish I did the challenges. I used UberChic Christmas 01 and Hit the Bottle Snowed Under to stamp the christmas jumper type pattern with the reindeer faces.
Then I used a Sharpie to add red noses, as we all know Rudolph has a red nose.
Then I mixed brown Sharpie and some nail varnish remover to make a light brown wash and coloured the reindeer in. (oh look - no picture of this stage... that was supposed to be the submission for #clairestelle8dec but I deleted the picture by mistake!)
Then I used my Kandy Colors Jellies to tint the nails with pink and blue for the Ugly Sweater prompt.
And finally, I added a matte top coat.
