Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Maybelline Forever Strong 605 Hyper Jade & Pop Rocks Groupie

Hi there! Today’s post is the last post for this week. And, of course, it’s another Christmas Nail Ideas post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Maybelline Forever Strong 605 Hyper Jade (2 coats). This polish is almost a one-coater. Nice!

The top coat I used is called Pop Rocks Groupie. It’s a sheer green jelly topper that’s packed with silver holo glitter. I had to apply 2 coats, but I didn’t mind because the mani turned out to look amazing. 🙂

How do you like this mani? Will you do a Christmas mani? Which colours will you use? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Perfect Stay Smooth Velvet Effect 612 Devil In Me, Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea & Stamping

Hi there! Here’s another Nail Of The Day post!

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Perfect Stay Smooth Velvet Effect 612 Devil In Me (2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers). This polish is matte, and it does feel and look a bit like velvet. I wanted a shiny blue, so I used clear polish to get rid of the matte look.

I painted my ring fingers and pinkies with Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea (3 coats). This is a silver holo polish, but the holo effect isn’t very strong.

I used an unbranded Christmas-themed stamping plate (pinkies, middle fingers) as well as MoYou London‘s Hipster 22 plate (index and ring fingers, thumbs).

The polishes I stamped with are Essence Colour Boost 11 Instant Match (blue) and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Presto Pewter (silver).

This is another mani I liked. It wasn’t perfect, but it came pretty close to what I wanted it to look like.

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White & Barry M Christmas Tree

Hi there! Here’s another Christmas-themed mani I did recently. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White (2 coats, although I could have gotten away with 1 coat as well). Primark has done a great job with this polish. This is the perfect white!

Don’t waste £15 on a mediocre white polish from one of the “salon brands”. If you’re looking for a great white polish, head to Primark, and pick up this little beauty for 90p!

Onto the glitter! The beautiful glitter top coat I used is Barry M Christmas Tree. It’s the ultimate Christmas glitter topper. I love it!

Nail Of The Day – Boots No. 7 Devil’s Delight & Essence Mountain Calling Snow Effect Top Coat

Hi there! I have another short Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Boots No. 7 Devil’s Delight (2 coats). This is a gorgeous red polish. I love everything about it.

Before I applied 1 coat of Essence Mountain Calling Snow Effect top coat, I applied 1 coat of clear polish. I did this to make sure the top coat stays pretty (and without it taking on an unwanted pink hue from the red polish).

I liked this mani very much. It was super easy to do, and I think it looked cute and christmassey. The snow effect top coat is simply awesome! Thanks, Essence!

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine, PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Essence Come To Town Lametta Topper

Hi there! I’ve got another Christmas Nail Ideas post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (green), PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (white), and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine (gold). The glitter top coat I used on my middle fingers is Essence’s Come To Town Lametta Topper.

I like this mani because it was easy to do, and because it doesn’t look like any of those standard Christmas manis that everyone (and that includes me) does this time of year.

What do you think? Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Revlon Colorstay 180 Indigo Night & Stamping

Hi there! Today’s nail post is about my interpretation of a blue and silver winter mani.

For this look I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 180 Indigo Night (2 coats).

I used my unbranded Christmas-themed stamping plate and 2 regular polishes (Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 280 Pure Silver and Orly Snow Cone) to stamp wintry images onto my nails.

I really love this mani! Blue and silver look great together, and the double-stamped images look amazing!

How do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Ciaté Play Date & MakeUp Gallery 39 Rainbow Sparkle

Hi there! This week’s going to be nail week. I’ve done lots of christmassey manis, and I’d like to share all of them with you!

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Play Date. I never liked this polish because it’s something between an unattractive pink and an ugly red.

However, this polish is also a low quality polish. It’s not well pigmented, and I had to apply 4 coats for a semi-acceptable finish.

Then I applied 1 coat of MakeUp Gallery’s 39 Rainbow Sparkle. This cute and christmassey top coat from Poundland contains gold micro glitter, gold and green hex glitter, and green and red bar glitter.

Whilst I didn’t love this mani, quite a few of my co-workers told me they loved my nails. I can only guess they liked this mani because of its simplicity. I’m not complaining! 🙂
