Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy & China Glaze Pure Joy / Mrs Santa Nails

upload-1Hi there! I hope everyone’s still enjoying the holidays. Today is one of my favourite days of the year – Boxing Day! 🙂

Why? Because the big 50% off in-store post-Christmas sale is on! I’ll show you all the stuff I bought – in a few days. Now onto the mani!

I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet’N’ Spicy (one coat). And I topped off my mani with two coats of China Glaze Pure Joy, a limited edition glitter topper from a few years ago.

Pure Joy is a densely packed red and gold glitter topper. But I still wanted a simple red base just so that I could skimp on the glitter topper.

Whilst I have dozens of red polishes, I only have 2 bottles of China Glaze’s Pure Joy. And I want to wear this polish again and again and again. By the way, Pure Joy isn’t just a Mrs Santa glitter polish, it’s also great for Halloween – if you’re going for a non-gory vampy vampire or devil look. 😉

Anyway, I really like my Mrs Santa nails. How do you like this mani? Feel free to let me know if you want to. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nails

Christmas maniHi there! I couldn’t decide between green or red nails the other day. So I went for both! The result is this easy Christmas mani.

I chose China Glaze With Love and Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green as my base colours.

With Love is the ultimate Christmas red. And Forest Green is a great Christmas tree green.

The next step was finding the perfect gold glitter topper – which is always easier said than done. Especially, when you have dozens of glitter toppers!

Eventually I chose Essie As Gold As It Gets. I’m happy with this topper because it looks like gold dust and it’s perfectly christmassy!
