Cold Hands..?... Warm Mittens!

Hello again lovely readers! I have had a BUSY week! Had a great Thanksgiving holiday with the family! I stuffed myself with turkey and all the fixins, BUT...We got some GREAT and exciting news this week. So, I told you about my son who wrestles and his exciting win a couple of weeks ago, and his wrestling successes and last week we got contacted by the coach for the International Youth Dual Team! My son has been invited to join the team! He will be representing the state of Oklahoma on the team! I am so excited for him. The only hitch is raising enough funds for all of his travel. So, I will be adding a link on the right side of the page for my son's Fundrazr page where you can donate, or anyone can donate if you feel you can. :) I also have a Pinterest board with a bunch of my stash up for sale to raise the funds. http://www.pinterest.com/coveredbycolor/pretties4sale/ If you see something that interests you, you can email me at anxi0tee at live dot com or send me a PM on Facebook, or leave me a comment on the CbC Facebook page.

Now, on to the mittens! Since today it was 66 here in Oklahoma, and we are expecting some severe winter weather, I got to thinking about my mittens and scarves. I have a new love for scarves lately. I now have four, and not even sure why I need so many when I have one neck! :P But why do I need 700 bottles of polish when I have only 20 nails? HAHAHA!

For this mani I used two new holiday polishes. Here is my supplies below.

The polishes are Sinful Colors Holiday Rebel, China Glaze Just Be-Claws, HK Girl Top coat by Glisten and Glow, and Pure Ice Loose fine glitter (I found these at Wal-Mart). I also Used China Glaze Pelican Gray for the base color and Sinful Colors Snow me White for the base of my accent nail.
To begin, I painted my base colors of my nails. I then used a small paint brush and painted the red mittens (China Glaze Just Be-Claws) on all but my accent nail. I added the Sinful Colors Holiday Rebel on top of the Snow me White on the accent nail. I waited for everything to dry and on a piece of wax paper mixed the fine white loose glitter with a drop of HK Girl. I then painted the white fluffy trim of the mittens on. The texture of these is a little 3D this way. You could use a white glittery polish to get the same look but without the fluffy 3D look.
Here is a close up of  Holiday Rebel (please excuse my very awful looking cuticles this close up):
