Christmas Mani: Candy Cane Accent Stamp

I'm way behind and should have posted this days ago, but here we go.  This was supposed to be a full stamped mani-- red candy canes on white, white candy canes on red-- but once I did the one stamp, I decided I liked the current look better than the idea of the planned one.

Christmas Mani: Stripes

I've been having more adventures in striping/nail art polish, and this is my latest.  Red and white stripes over a green base.  I had a bit more trouble with the white, due to it being thick and gloppy in the neck of the bottle.  There was also some smudging that waiting ten minutes did  not prevent, contrary to the nail art tip I saw on Facebook.  (Not that I believed it to begin with.  I tend to wait a long time before putting on topcoat, anyway.)

This also marks my first full-on gap mani. Not too bad, I'dsay.
