Merry Christmas! What’s On Your Nails?
|December 25, 2012||Posted by peach_ under Life|
Although the extravagant Christmas decorations that adorn storefronts and streets will have you fooled, it’s actually not officially a holiday today in Japan. But that doesn’t mean we don’t love the day as a sort of non-religious cultural celebration. We’ve even adapted it to suit our national sweet-tooth; we have something called “Christmas cake,” just like a birthday cake, but embellished with Christmas-themed frostings and edible decorations. The celebration centers around this cake that is usually purchased (in many cases, reserved well in advance) from a cake shop.
No, I don’t have themed nail art with reindeers or snowflakes on my nails, but I’m wearing something I thought looked like a snow-flecked tree: Julep’s suede nail polish in Hailee. I’ve been wearing it a lot this month, actually, and have been loving it even more when I found it matched the color and texture of one of my bags.
I hope you have a Merry Christmas! (Or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or whatever you celebrate this festive season!)
And of course, let me know what’s on your nails.
