Today’s nail art is a simple one that nearly catches me back up to where I was supposed to be. Candy cane stripes are such a bold and lovely look. Red and white are the usual culprits, although candy canes come in so many wonderful flavors and color combinations. Oh it’s such a dangerous time of year for someone who loves sugar.

I decided to set off all that red and white with a minty green background gradient, but of course my camera is convinced that the darker shade (Sinful Colors’ “Rise & Shine”) is more blue than it really is. That’s life, I guess. 🙂

This was a simple look, so I hope you’ll forgive me for having fewer photos to share this time. I’m also happy to say that I have now passed the halfway mark with using my unused Sinful Colors’ polishes and yesterday’s polar bears meant I hit my mark on freehand painted designs this month. Woot! Hopefully I can continue to go strong through the rest of the month.

Share it if you love it!
