25 Days of Christmas Challenge: Day 12 Poinsettia Nails

I am loving my nails right now.  I think that this design turned out great!

I knew that I would not be able to free hand the poinsettias on my nails so I went to my nail plates.  There are a couple designs on the plates that resemble poinsettias and then I saw a YouTube video of someone using the stamps. Here is the video.  This is soguesswhat11 on Facebook.  I liked her idea but I didn't want to do the same design on each nail.  After some thought I came up with the following design. 
This post is kind of picture heavy because I just love this design!!!
I didn't take pictures of each step because there were so many!
I did start with the same base as yesterday: Pure Ice Don't You Wish.


The following shows the colors I used with the design: (lots of pictures!)










Colors:
China Glaze Velvet Bow (red) and Holly-Day (green)( I used a small brush with Holly-Day to added leaves to my index fingers.)
Sinful Colors Snow Me White
Pure Ice Bite Me (poinsettia centers with dotting tool)
I also added a coat of Northern Lights and then 2 coats of SV.
Stamps: BM 03, 06, 201 and 211

This is one of my best stamping designs!!
