First Holiday Manicure and what I've been doing through November

Oh my! I've neglected my blog for a while. It's because I painted both of my daughters rooms during the November month. My nails were covered in primer and paint. Paint also sticks to nail polish and does not scrub off. I had textured lime green nails that looked like a version of the upcoming spring China Glazes. I finally stopped so I could decorate for the holidays and focus on all things Christmas. I still have to finish the windows in one room and the entire closet in the other. That will have to wait until after New Years.
My nails got chopped short due to all the wear, tear, and breakage.  By the time it grows back, I will have started to paint again.
This is my first official December manicure.  I wanted something frosty and glittery-like a holiday ornament.  Here is what I came up with.

For this manicure, I used
Seche Vite base coat
2 coats SH Gem Crush in Big Money
I coat OPI Don't Touch My Tutu
A dot of Big Money along my cuticles and spread it down using a dotting tool
A dot of Milani Lavender Jewel FX and spread it by brushing over a top coat

Here are some pics of the rooms.

This pic shows up more yellow but it is actually a honeydew green.

My 5 year olds room.  It has a princess theme that suits her well.

My 3 year olds room.  It's fun and playful.

Her bed is a mess, but I love this pose.

This is what the room walls looked like before. 
It was dark and her room doesn't catch the sunlight well.
