Happy Holidaze the seventh- Sweet nothings!

Ahhh, the holiday season, when people hang all sorts of candies from a tree, so that you can casually nab a snack as you wander by! Oddly enough, I've never been a fan of mint but I think the patterns on mint candies can be adorable. Candy canes, starlight mints... the crisp white really sets off the red & green stripes. That's the inspiration behind today's nail art.

I just want to lick these!!
This is the simplest nail art ever. Two coats of white polish, then use a striping polish in red and/or green. I used the lush red glitter striper from Kiss's limited edition holiday set, along with a green Art Deco striper from the Dollar Tree. While a deeper green would seem more Christmassy, I think the lighter green really does give this a candy feel.

As always, a coat of Seche Vite tops everything off to make this smooth and glossy. Other top coats aren't bad, really, but Seche Vite is thick, dries exceptionally quickly, and self-levels so that any lumps and bumps get covered up. It's SWEET!

Kiss Nail Art Nail Paint was provided by the manufacturer for consideration.
