The Digit-al Dozen Does Festiveness: Rudolph Accent Nail

Today I decided to bring you an easy fun accent nail of Rudolph! I was really happy how these turned out!

I started with three coats of Layla Softouch Effects 02 Golden Touch. Can I just say again how much I love the Softouch collection! Great formula and great durability! I did three coats and you can still see a bit of visible nail line in some lights. But I thought this was a great base as it is very holiday and magical! :) Oh and I am not a big gold person either and I love this!

I then used Layla Softouch Effects 11 Mudhattan (yep I bought this one especially for this mani!) for Rudolph's face. I used OPI Warm & Fozzie for his antlers, China Glaze Ruby Slippers for his nose, Pure Ice Platinum Magic Base Coat and Finger Paints Black Expressionism for his eyes.

Here is a different angle to show the texture of Mudhattan for Rudolph's face. It's sort of leathery! Can't wait to try this polish as a full mani!

A macro of Rudolph. I love OPI Warm & Fozzie for the antlers. I wanted something magical for them and have this polish with the two colors is great! Very shimmery! I think he turned out so cute!

I got my inspiration and help from this great tutorial over at Polish and Pearls (please click the link to see the video!).

Don't forget to check out the other ladies and their festive manis! :)


  1. So cute! Now I NEED to buy a Layla Softouch Effects polish!

  2. Okay, so I love your Rudolph. I feel I should explain why - in the movie Rudolph when he's playing Reindeer games or whatever with his friends and he has the fake nose on - he gets excited and his nose pops off and glows red with a loud pitched sound. The eyes of the reindeer's around look like this & it seriously has always made me laugh! Now that I've shared this pointless story - I love this :)

    1. Thank you! Hahaha! I love your comment! It reminded me of him and that sound too! :)

  3. Oh so damn sticking cute! Love this!

  4. I LOVE THIS. Your Rudolph is so adorable! And I love the different textures and finishes of polishes you chose for this :D

  5. You should be proud of these! Your Rudolph turned out so cute.
