Let it Snow Challenge #2- Inspired by Holiday Song/ Movie

I need to just preface this post by saying that it's so funny how things have a way of working themselves out! It's a long story and I'll attempt to sum it up so we can get to the nails!

It all started with the amazing nail polish deals on or around Black Friday. I had been eyeing up a few of the A Christmas Story themed polishes at DarlingDivaPolish (specifically Soap Poisoning and Fa Ra Ra Ra Ra). Well now, I LOVE A Christmas Story. It's an amazing movie. Naturally, I snatched these two polishes up when a nice discount was offered!

Now, I looked and saw that the next challenge was "Inspired by a Holiday Song/ Movie/ Carol". I received my two new lovelies in the mail (crazy quick shipping, may I add!) and looked at Fa Ra Ra Ra Ra and had an idea! See, these polishes are based on a Christmas movie, Fa Ra Ra Ra Ra is in reference to Deck the Halls being sung in a Chinese restaurant (a Holiday song!) -----> LIGHTBULB!!

I looked through my other nail polish and grabbed Zoya Isla and Zoya Holly (see what I did there? Deck the halls with boughs of HOLLY! I'm so clever!). I decided on an accent of Isla with Holly being the main star of the show.

I got so many compliments on this manicure! I loved it! It was so very festive!

Now, to continue my story!

My fiancĂ© had told me a week or two prior to this challenge that he had an early Christmas surprise for me on December 1st. Everyone in both of our families knew what it was, except me. My family found great joy in tormenting me :). Well, I happened to have this manicure on the day of the big surprise!! As it turned out, he took me to NYC to see A CHRISTMAS STORY THE MUSICAL!!! Ahhhhhh!!! It was AMAZING! I love theater and have never seen anything on Broadway so this was fantastic and I found it hilarious that I had this manicure on that day. I got to wear something named Fa Ra Ra Ra Ra and Holly while watching the story that inspired one of the polishes! 

So there you have it! My manicure that is inspired by both a holiday song and holiday movie!

Thanks for reading!
