Winter Holidays Challenge: Day 5 - Christmas Decorations

I absolutely love decorating my house for Christmas!  I keep trying to get the hubby to do a Griswold Christmas, but he just won't go for it! One of my best Christmas memories was surprising my parents by turning our house into a winter wonderland.  So I had lots of inspiration for this design.  In the end I decided to go with a close up of a decorated tree.

I started with 2 coats of China Glaze Peace on Earth.



Next, I added my garland using China Glaze Velvet Bow, Essie Good as Gold and a dotting tool.



The last addition was my ornaments.  I used HD07 and Essie No Place Like Chrome.




I topped it off with 2 coats of HK Girl.





After I added the garland I started thinking that maybe this was going to turn out bad, but I really like it!  I think adding the ornaments really tied it all together.
