Christmas is finally here and now that I'm back home in South Carolina surrounded by my niece and cousins, there's no better way to bond than over at-home manicures. So, today before we dig into the deep-fried turkey, collard greens, candied yams and fruit cake, I'll challenge them to creating the tiniest Christmas tree ever.

For this look, Nailside blogger Jane applied a base coat of OPI Jade is the New Black before painting on China Glaze Mistletoe Kisses. Once dry, she placed two strips of stationary tape, creating a chevron shape, onto the "flash" nail. Then she randomly stuck on smaller strips across to form garland before layering on China Glaze 2030. Once the design dried, Jane carefully removed the pieces of tape. To finish, she added a red rhinestone for the tree topper and set with top coat.

What do you think about this abstract Christmas tree-inspired manicure?
