You know, I’m sure a lot of families bake and decorate Christmas cookies together, but it’s not something my family ever really did. When I saw the Christmas cookie prompt for Day 10 of the challenge, all I could really think of are those Pillsbury sugar cookies with the Christmas trees in the center. So that’s what I went with. Then I remembered that gingerbread men are sort of a standard for Christmas and added one of them as well.
This was actually much more difficult than I was anticipating, especially the gingerbread man. I don’t have my full range of polishes right now, and nothing here at my parents’ house was a good color for gingerbread. I think I spent more time mixing polishes for that brown color than I did on painting all of the cookies. But things turned out pretty well and I’m happy with the final result.
Oh, and I got to use my first ever NailNation 3000 polish! The background color is #captaincamo, which is described as a grassy green with gold flecks. It was darker than that on my nails, but was still beautiful. It dries to a suede finish, and is good to go in two coats. Honestly, it was probably good in one coat, but I did two anyway.
Isn’t that the perfect background for my Christmas cookie nail art? I think it was a great choice, and was a fantastic introduction to NailNation 3000 as a brand. I can’t wait to try out the others that I bought!
