Nail Art; Russian Nesting Dolls ♥Matryoshka Dolls♥

Lately I’ve been losing my feelings for nail polish. I haven’t been as excited about it much.  So I decided that it was time to get back to the whole reason why I started. I believe my very first posts were strictly nail art! How in the world did I get so far from what I love?

What I have to show today is something that I’ve wanted to do since before I started this blog, but I never really believed that I could do it well enough to even like it myself. So here they are. I could have made these again on a plastic bag and transferred the  design so that both hands had it- which I would have loved- but it had taken quite some time- about an hour. Cranky babies can’t wait forever you know?

I know they don’t look like they’d all fit into each other but that wasn’t the point of this. I love these little dolls and have two small sets of my own that I received (one of them later on by accident) from the largest Christmas store I’ve ever seen located in Frankenmuth, Michigan. The whole town is too cute and the hand painted ornaments at the store are to die for! The actual name of the store is Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland.

Oh and my accidental set was purchased at the same time mine was except it was for my niece that I grew up with since the time she was a baby. We were most likely 7 and 12 (me being older) at the time we got these and it was one of the best family vacations we went on. When my mother passed away almost two years ago these dolls were in her knick knack cabinet and both were given to me. After contacting my niece she said I could just keep it, as long as she knew I had it  it was fine.

ALSO! I will do these again sometime and I will try to be smart and make sure I have my dolls with my pictures! *They don’t look like the nails I did here*
