Sation I Love Yule Nail Polish & Christmas Holiday Nail Art Manicure

From the Sation Happy Holiday Go Lightly Collection, I have the luscious red nail polish I Love Yule to show you today. I Love Yule is a classic red - not blue toned, not orange - just a beautiful wearable red for everyone and applied as a one coat wonder.

While swatching I Love Yule, my mind wandered to the holiday season and I was compelled to do an accent nail of Christmas/Yule/Holiday nail art. We had a Christmas concert this weekend and it just seemed appropriate!!

Yes, that's one coat only of I Love Yule. Red is the thinnest of the pigments so to find a red that covers completely in one coat is amazing. It applied smoothly and was a joy to use.

The Christmas/Yule/Holiday tree was placed on a background of Snow White, pictured in the lower right hand portion of the following picture. I used all of these Sation nail polishes to create the nail art manicure.

Next I painted the form of the tree with a liner brush using the green you see pictured, Under The Miss-tletoe. It is another color from the Happy Holiday Go Lightly Collection.

When painting a picture, I would normally use other colors to create shadows and highlights. Using the green glitter polish that you see in the picture, Ego-Friendly, it created natural color changes due to the glitter colors. It also has micro holographic green glitters that make a nice accent on the Christmas tree.

The tree trunk is Sation I'm With The Bandana from the Nailstock Collection. On the very top of the tree, I used Sation Track Starlet. It's an incredible combination of glitters and I was able to place one of the holographic glitters right at the top, creating the illusion of a star.

And there you have it - a manicure of I Love Yule complete with an accent nail of a Christmas tree in the snow. It was FUN. I love to paint so doing stuff like this is really fun for me.
