On the 4th Day of Christmas…Tree

16 Dec

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree.  We have an artificial tree and just this week put it up and decorated it.  How lame are we?  We usually do it the weekend after Thanksgiving, but decided to wait a couple weeks so we didn’t have to spend a full month trying to keep our little one away from it.

I love this Christmas tree manicure!  I got this idea from Simply Rins.  It’s such a clever way to do a tree and gives lots of texture to it.  I also got a chance to use my new American Apparel Butter polish.  It’s the yellow I’ve been looking for.  So soft and it goes on nicely.  Not like the other light yellows I’ve tried.  I wish I could remember where I saw it swatched to thank that person for introducing me to it.

I used 4 different greens and several sized dotting tools to build this tree.  I was originally planning to use tape, but I love this so much more than the tree I had imagined.

What do you think of my Christmas trees?  Have you or will you try a tree?
