Festive Nails – Statement Nails

Hey guys,
I thought I’d do another nail post! I know these aren’t particularly festive colours but its such a versatile design and glitter is always festive!
I chose to do a pretty pink with a glittery ring finger which I expect you’ll have seen all over the Internet! Pinterest is full of great nail designs and I always feel inspired!
For this one I used a pretty pink from toma! Not sure what its called but any colour will work with glitter!
The glitter is I’m Not Lion from China Glaze and its a really nice subtle gold micro glitter.
For this look (and every look really) try to use a base coat as glitter can be really tricky to get off!
So what are you guys looking forward to most about Christmas? I’d love to hear!

Festive Nails – Frostbitten

Hi all,
I’ve got a little nail art/ festive nail tutorial for you here as I haven’t done one for a while!
I always enjoy painting my nails and even though I’m no professional it’s fun and its easy!
This one is Christmassy inspired and I was kinda thinking of icicles and frost when I did this one! Plus I’m seriously loving the glitter at the moment so that had to be in there!

So here goes:
I always do a base coat to protect my nails, especially when I do glitter as its notoriously difficult to get off! The one I used here was Sally Hansen Insta-grip, which is pretty good an I got it reduced!

The base colour is used was OPI Time-less is more, which I’ve had for a while! I had to do three coats as this is quite a sheer colour!

To add a subtle hint of glitter I used jackpot which was just from George’s own make up range at Asda all over the nail.

Then to add the frosty glitter I used Snowflake from Models Own which is quite a nice chunky glitter in white iridescent tones! I used this from the middle to the end of my nails before finishing with a top coat!

And there you have it! If you try this nail look I’d love to see a picture and if you have any other nail looks you’ve tried I’d love to see them!
