Christmas Gift Wrap Mani

I was looking at my looming list of untrieds the other day and decided to forgo my affair with creme polishes. For a while, at least.

It’s only so many days until Christmas and I better get going on the sparkly and shiny holiday manicures.

I started with one of my untrieds — OPI’s Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous which is a dark silver (gunmetal) foil. Very pretty, very sparkly.

I needed three coats of the polish.

Despite the sheerness of the polish, I really liked the formula as it’s thin and easy to apply.

I wore this mani for an evening and then decided to upgrade it to even more sparkle and shine. 🙂

I used Bundle Monster plate 20 to add diagonal stripes in a silver foil — China Glaze’s Cheers to You — to the OPI.

The combination of silver and gunmetal foil stripes reminded a friend who saw this live of those shiny Christmas gift wrapping papers. 🙂 Thus the name of the mani.

What do you think? Holiday-ish or not?

I have a more golden-y festive manicure coming up next.


O.P.I. polishes are available at various online retailers such as, but I prefer to get mine from e-Bay seller strawberryfieldsforever029.

  1. Gorgeous mani! Seriously! Definitely holidayish!

    I do not approve of this evilbay seller though, because she/he wouldn’t combine the shipping. At least it’s what happened to me.

  2. That’s the color scheme and pattern the Nordstroms boxes used to (and maybe still do ) have for Christmas. High end girl.
