When I think of Christmas, gingerbread man cookies served with a glass of milk always come to mind. And this DIY nail art on the blog A Slacquer That Loves Lacquer, has me craving the holiday treat.

Felice Chan, the 19-year-old Chicago-native behind the website, created this manicure as part of her 25 days of Christmas challenge, which include other festive designs like snowflakes, candy canes and mittens.

To get this look, first apply two coats of China Glaze Re-fresh Mint. Then dip a dotting tool into Kleancolor Cafe Au Lait and paint a gingerbread man onto the thumb finger. Use Kleancolor Black for the eyes, smile and buttons, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Color Rapid Red for the bow tie and OPI Alpine Snow for the white lines. Repeat on the remaining nails, leaving chunks of the body missing to appear as if he's been eaten.
