Deconstructed Gingerbread

Deconstructed Gingerbread

These nails, inspired by everyone’s favourite holiday time non-edible edible, are my entry in the second week of Nail Polish Canada’s Holiday Nail Art Challenge.

This week’s theme is holiday decorations. I waffled for a bit on whether a gingerbread house design would qualify as a decoration before finally deciding that yes, gingerbread houses most definitely fall into the category of decoration. Let’s put it this way: Do you stuff it in your mouth or dust it once a week before throwing it in the trash two days after Christmas? My thoughts precisely! 😉

As with nearly all of my work, these nails are freehanded, with some gingerbread house design elements over top of a little brown-on-brown sponging work for that slightly crumbly cookie look. Add a touch of holographic glitter here and there and bingo, gingerbread house nails!

If you like these nails and would like to vote for them (and me, the girl attached to them!) please stop by the below link and make your voice heard by voting for Finger Candy! Or check out some of the other great entries, or maybe try your hand at a design or two yourself. The more the (pun intended) merrier!
