Reindeer Mani

Here's my attempt at reindeer nails. Sorry about the messy cuticles. I forgot to clean them and didn't notice until editing the photos. I used 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Brisk Blue for the base with 1 coat of Ozotic Mish Mash 533 (which I haven't swatched yet) over the top. I used BYS - GI Jane for the reindeer, China Glaze - Poinsettia for the red nose and a cheap no name $2 shop black polish for the other noses. I used a Sharpie pen to outline the reindeer. I used 2 coats of Seche-Vite top coat. I think this will be my Christmas day manicure. If you want to see a really cute reindeer mani check out Nicole's blog!

I spent about 2 hours trying to create a dark brown nail polish with my franken polish supplies but in the end I had to give up. I thought brown was the easiest colour to mix? Supposedly you mix red, yellow and blue together and you get brown. I just kept getting greyish purple colours even when I adjusted how much of each colour. 

What will your Christmas day mani be?
