A sneak peak at my Christmas Tree

If you've purchased nail art items from ebay before then you already know that there are thousands of sellers. With over 121,030+ items in the Nail Art section alone it might be a little overwhelming. With that much items to sift through it might be hard to choose what you want.

Ebay Tips:
1) ALWAYS use Paypal
If you don't already have a Paypal account you might want to consider signing up for one. It's 100% free to sign up, very easy and safe. Paypal allows you to shop online without directly giving up your credit / debit card information.

2) Find the deals!
If you want to find the best deals for a certain item then consider sorting by 'Price + Shipping: lowest first'. You'll be surprised on what you can find for $1.00 :)

3) Pay as soon as you buy
Would you want your bills to pile up in real life? No! Right when you win a bid / buy an items pay for it ASAP! Your item will ship sooner and you won't have to worry about it.

4) Be patient
Most of the nail items that are sold on ebay are from China or Hong Kong. If you're located in the U.S then it'll take anywhere from 2 weeks to a month for your item to get to you.

5) Sooner than later
If there's a problem with your item contact the seller and explain to him / her that the item you received was damaged / defected. Most sellers are very understanding and will try to accommodate you.

Where the heck have I been the whole November?! I don't know even know! I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and stuffed yourself with some yummy pumpkin pie and turkey. I know I did! I also hope you did some awesome nail art. Let me know in the comments what your Thanksgiving colors were. As for me, I was sick most of November and did feel up to painting my nails anything festive. Boo. I haven't even been on Makeupalley or any other of the nail forums. Can you believe it? I love December. I can't wait until it gets closer to Christmas so I can do more Christmas themed nail art.

Enough rambling! This is the nail art I did for this week. I wanted to do something that had a hint of Christmas but nothing too showy. When I was in the Philippines I saw numerous ladies with this design on their toes and I thought it would be something quick and easy.

Base color I used China Glaze Ruby Pumps and Folkart acrylic paint in 660 Metallic Pure Gold


So what do you think? What are some of the Christmas colors you're sporting?
