Christmas Cookie Mani Swap

Hello! Guys I am SOOO excited about today! To start off it is National Cookie day and on top of that I have a massive post to share with you and its cookie related. 😁 Need I even say more? Today marks the first ever Christmas Cookie Mani Swap. What is that? Well I am about ready to tell you because I can't keep it quite any longer! 😃



The Christmas Cookie Mani Swap is something that I came up with that would be something fun and special to do with my blogging nail Friends. Traditionally this is the time of year where friends come together and have little Holiday parties with Cookie swaps. That though in mind I was wondering how could we do something similar to that but with all of the great friends I have made through the wonderful world of blogging that live all over the world. Then it came to me, a Christmas Cookie Mani Swap. Mani swaps happen often where 2 friends swap nail art looks and post them together so I thought we could do that but take it a step further by making it festive, and edible! So myself and 7 of my nail friends have come together to create manis inspired by one of our favorite holiday cookies.

Cookie Nail Art

Here is a look at the mani that I did for this collaboration. I made Linzer cookies which are just hands down one of my all time favorite cookies. They are a sandwich cookie, and are kind of like a short bread and then in the middle they have fruit preserves in the middle then its all topped with powdered sugar and its just so yummy.

Here you can see the cookie cutters I used a long with the dry mixture that is in the recipe. (Details in the magazine) You make a whole bunch of the round cookies and then in half of them you cut out a smaller little shade . That is where you get the color shape after you put the cookies together.

For the nails started with white and tried to capture a marble counter top. After that I moved on to the cookies and the cookie cutters.

Here is an unclose look at the nails! They ended up coming out pretty close to the actually cookie which was nice!

Now there is an up close look at the cookies. These are just too good, my mom makes them every year and now from time to time I help. However these I did do all by myself! ;) I actually bake cookies quite often. Plus after writing this full post all about cookies I totally want to go eat some!

So often I will find a recipe on my phone but don't want to use my little phone screen and drain my battery by using it for the recipe. That being said I can just use my iPad and scan this and the recipes will come right up! Love having the iPad with a stand for baking! Totally makes Pinterest recipes easier.
