Digital Dozen Traditions Day 1, My Christmas Colours

This week I'm the Digital Dozen universe we are celebrating traditions. At this time of year for me traditions centre around the Christmas holidays and my eldest sons birthday. He's a December baby!

For day one I've chosen to give you a peek into our home. When I started my career years ago I used my first Christmas bonus to buy a big tree and full set of wine and gold decorations. I still maintain this colour palette and still have many of the decorations. 

I included this next shot because my lil one likes to disappear into our front room to sit by the tree. This photo wasn't staged, it's exactly as I found him. 

For my first mani I decided to create a look with my Christmas decor colours. 
For the gold and wine stamping I used Essie Penny Talk and the wine colour is an unnamed Essie I picked up at the dollar store. The base is Orly Frosting.

Once matted, I wore this one to pieces and applied it prior to our tree decorating date night. 

Cheers all,


  1. This is a very lovely manicure, I like all the nail polishes that you used to create the look... very nice and cheers to you. =)

    1. It turned out so rich and warm, I might need to do this combo again with another stamp image!

  2. This is such a great look! From the small glimpse of your Christmas tree, I bet it's beautiful too!
