Frosted Gingerbread Cookie Mani

Hi everyone, welcome to Tuesday.  Hopefully your week is going well.  Work went by quickly for me yesterday so I'm hoping for that again today.  I can't believe we are already in December.  I had a little bit of a panic moment on Saturday when I realized that I hadn't thought of gifts for anyone.  Cyber Monday was a good day for me because we ended up buying gifts online for just about everyone on our list.  Did anyone else partake in Cyber Monday?  Admittedly I did pick up some clothes for myself as well :)

Today I have a mani I did over the weekend when the Christmas nail art bug bit me.  I think it's probably because I did no nail art over the week that I was in Florida, so when I got back, I needed to do all of the nail art!  I really like the final product of this one.

I took my inspiration from a picture of frosted gingerbread cookies that I saw while browsing the holiday section of Pinterest.  I would hate to know how many hours of my life are gone from browsing Pinterest :)  I started with a base of OPI San Tan-tonio and used a Winstonia nail art brush and Maybelline Porcelain Party to create the white cookie design, snowflake, and garland.  For my accent nail I used OPI The World is Not Enough with a layer of OPI Lights of Emerald City.

What do you think of my cookie nails?  Do you like gingerbread cookies?   I hate to say it but I don't think I've ever even tried a gingerbread cookie....oops!  If you missed it yesterday, you can check out my current giveaway here.


  1. Oh this is refreshing, I never seen this sort of icing on ginger bread design before, nice!

  5. Hi! Thanks for giving feedback on my blog, now it’s my turn! :) First a great thing about your blog: you have really pretty pictures – I especially love the sort of upside down hand pose, if you know which one I mean? :)
    Then, something else: I think your banner could be a bit more eye-catching – maybe change the font, put the blogtitle in the middle, or add some pictures to your banner? (my banner is also not so eye-catching and someone commented about it, that’s why I’m thinking about it here as well). I like the lay-out of your blog and the personal information you share – I mean, you say something about your day or about some holiday, and I like that :) And of course the great nail art is also a great plus!

    1. Hi Robin, thanks for the input and your nice words. The upside down hand pose is my favorite :) I totally agree with you about my banner, it's pretty bad haha! I'll have to see if my husband can come up with something for me. I really appreciate the feedback!
