Lazy gold Christmas tree

So I've been dying to try my hand at a Christmas tree... On my nails.... Obviously. But I've kinda been stuck with my colour scheme.

I've been thinking of doing a base of Tip Top (sob) As The Beat Grows On with a tree in purple using Catrice PlumDogMillionare, but then I was thinking neon green is not really a christmassy colour. And I have done that colour scheme before.... Maybe I should rather use Tip Top (sob) Lazy Lizard or (sob) Volcanic Eruption. But then I thought again "a purple tree?", maybe I should rather use Gold Mine for a tree. And then I was like, but I wanna use a textured polish for my tree and I only have two...... Aaaand I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this rant.

So I asked BF and he gave me a completely different thing to do and I was like no. Then I asked my mother and we came to a conclusion.

I started of with 2 coats of Lazy Lizard on all my nails, after my base coat obviously. I used some striping tape and nail guides that I bought ages ago on my ring finger to make a tree. For the tree I used Gold Mine...
I did some dots on my index finger also using Gold Mine. I did a bit of a glitter placement using Tip Top Rocky Road. I put some polish on a piece of plastic and fished out the pieces I wanted to place them on my nails.
I actually had some left over and as I absolutely hate wasting I stuck them on the dots on my index finger.
