Ho! Ho! Holiday Nails!

If you follow my blog, you’re awesome AND you know how much I love a pretty manicure. I’m not into Christmas as much as I used to be as a kid, but I do love the decorations, music, and festivities that come along with this season. And this is the only time of year you can get away with French tips that resemble candy canes-so why not take advantage??
