12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge Day 4: Christmas Lights

Today is Day 4 of Nicole's Christmas Nail Art Challenge - Christmas lights.
I decided to go with actual old skool Christmas Light bulbs.
For these nails I painted each a base color and then did a vertical sponge gradient with a matching shimmer color to add some depth.  Next I gave it the bulb shape with a couple swipes of black and gave it a little white highlight to make it look 3Dish. 
To make it look more bulb-y I added a cap/socket.
Overall I am pretty please how they came out!

Below are the colors I used for today's challenge.
Don't forget to stop by Nicole's blog and check out the others participating in this challenge.
