Buffalo Plaid, Feathers, and Red Lips

Only 6 days until Christmas, and another festive mani Monday down!  I’m feeling the festive spirit with finding a way to bring a little red, green and glam to my everyday.  Today’s festive is a buffalo plaid mixed mani, feather necklace and a classic red lip!

For my buffalo plaid mixed mani I started with Friday Flannel nail wrap from Jamberry on my ring.  I then used Julep polishes to do my black and gold nails.  Once it dried I drew the line down the side of my ring and middle with that same gold and then cleaned up around the nail.  This really matched a lot of my festive red and green outfits I’ve been wearing lately, like this feather and red lip look!

The mark. So Fly Necklace with its black feather, hematite metal and gemstone details is a really fun piece for the holidays.  I paired mine over this off the shoulder sweater (WHBM) and a black and white wool plaid skirt (Nordstroms).

If your NYE is a little more casual and cold weather this fun necklace might be the piece you need to fun up your look.  Pair it with my favorite red lip, mark. All Butter Up in Fired Up and you are good to go!  You can shop the mark. So Fly Necklace at my eBoutique.  Now what to do for the ultimate festive mani Monday, Christmas Day!  What are you planning on wearing?

Eat drink and give thanks!  Thanksgiving is only days away, and with all the preparation for the feast I’ve already prepared my Thanksgiving Day Nails with Jamberry.  So you might remember a bit ago I tried out Jamberry and I was surprised on how well they actually worked!  So I placed an order with these 2 designs that are absolutely adorable for Thanksgiving!

I mean look at that little fox… with a tail!  How cute is that!?!  I paired Jamberry Faux Fox with the red buffalo plaid called Friday Flannel.  These two together are the perfect fall pairing but will be just as cute come holiday.

A litte on the ease of using a Jamberry nail wrap:  I definitely was a little hesitant since in the past these kind of things never even lasted a day!  BUT you can really tell the difference in quality with the Jamberry and honestly they’re not that hard to apply (even with your non dominant hand!)  My little trick was to go from the edge instead of from the middle out and heating it up.  That is KEY!  You can see the adhesive become tacky when you heat.

These nails I did Friday and then I did all things normal like washing your hands and showering but I also mega cleaned, gave 2 dogs a bath and sorted through gross recycling and they still look good and held up great.  I have NO DOUBT they’ll look this good come Thanksgiving Day!

Only issue is my pointer I didn’t apply it straight enough with my non dominant hand but that’s 1 nail out of 10, I consider that a win!
