A Christmas Story – Bunny Suit

The second weeks challenge was “gifts”.

The first thing gift giving makes me think of is those horrible gifts you would occasionally get as a kid (Bad Christmas sweaters etc.), which reminded me of one of my favorite holiday movies “A Christmas Story” and the terrible christmas gift that Ralphie got from his Aunt Clara, the infamous “Bunny Suit”. So I ran with it and decided to go with a ‘Christmas Story’ theme for my nails, including some of the gifts therein.

I first painted two coats of “Sally Hansen – Platinum Frost” on all of my nails, then the inspiration for each nail is as follows:

Thumb: Christmas tree to put presents under in their living room on Christmas day, Painted by hand with a brush using “Urban Decay – Mars” then did some random sized Christmas balls using “Barry M – Red” and “Milani – white”

Pointer: Ralphie’s stocking where Santa leaves him stocking stuffers, using “Barry M – Red” and “Milani – white” I painted the stocking with a brush and used a toothpick and “China Glaze – liquid leather” to write Ralph.

Middle: Ralphie in his bunny suit was all hand painted with a tiny brush using “Julep – Kelly” for his face, “Milani – white” eyes, toothpicked “China Glaze – Liquid leather” and made it look like his eyes were rolling, mouth and nose using “Sally Hansen – Ruby Sequin”. The bunny suit was painted using “OPI – Think in Pink” for the light pink part of the suit, and the under the ears the brighter pink is the Ruby Sequin. I then painted his hair using “OPI – DS Classic”, and his glasses using “Sally Hansen – Forbidden Fugde”

Ring: Red Ryder BB Gun, painted with a tiny brush “China Glaze – liquid leather” and “Revlon – Stone” I then with the same brush wrote out Red Ryder using “Barry M – Red”

Pinky: Ralphie’s dad had won a Leg lamp which was his gift, I used “Julep – Kelly” for the leg shape, and “China Glaze – liquid leather” for the shoe and the fringe on the lamp shade. I then lastly manipulated my “KandNails CK-02” fish net stamp to just go over the leg with liquid leather.

Without further adieu, here is the look!
