Advent Nails for NailArt Sunday - swatches and mini tutorial

Today it's the first Sunday of Advent so today we light the first candel in our advent candelsticks! :D Today is also NailArt Sunday! :D This is the result when you combine these to events! ;)

 
 I used the following polishes: 
(from left to right)
China Glaze Party Hearty
Orly Torrid
Butter London British Racing Green
China Glaze Happy Go Lucky
China Glaze Life Preserver
Illamasqua Boosh

How to do these Advent nails:
Apply a base polish. I used Orly Torrid.
Add the candels using nail striping tape. I used a gold tape.
Apply the moss with a piece of make up sponge and then do a thicker coat using the brush of the polish.
Add some decorations and sparkel to the moss.
Use a dotting tool to do the candelwicks to do the flame of the lit candle.
Finally, seal the manicure with a top coat! Done! :D Puh... ;)

What do you like this Advent manicure?
Fun or just too much...? ;)

    1. Oh thank you!! :D
      The glitter was supposed to symbolize the gnomes and fungus we tend to decorate the moss with ;)
