Christmas Challenge 2013 Roundup

Now that the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts Christmas Winter Challenge is over, I thought I’d do a roundup of my manicures.

This is only my second challenge, and while fairly easy because it was only two manicures a week, I’m still pleased that I managed to keep up with it and posted on time for each one.

Here are all my manicures from the challenge. If you want to know about the polishes I used or how I did a manicure, just click on the image to go to the original post.

My favourites are definitely the Furby Boom characters, as that’s a completely unique manicure, not inspired by or copied from anyone. It also took an absolute age to do, waiting for each element to dry before adding the next tiny detail, and I’m proud of the effort I put into it. I wouldn’t ordinarily wear something like this on my nails, but it was fun to do for a challenge.

I got lots of lovely compliments about the trees and the penguins, but I did love my holly nails and wore them for ages.

Which ones are your favourites?

I do like your “Toys” nails but the red and white stamping and the blue trees are my favourites. I hope you don’t mind me asking…did you buy your BM plates on eBay?

I bought most of my Bundle Monster sets from The last ones though (the Bundle Monster Create Your Own set) I bought directly from Bundle Monster.


Thanks! I’ll try to get my hands on some. Happy New Year!
