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 – 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! 🙂

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 & Stamping With Pueen 44

Hi there! It’s after Christmas, but… here’s another Christmas Nail Idea. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (middle fingers), and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine (ring fingers).

I used Essence’s Come To Town Lametta Topper to add a little sparkle to the white base. And I used Pueen’s 44 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize to stamp golden stars onto the green base.

I like this mani. It’s christmassey, but it’s not over the top. I also like the individual look of the mani – it’s not one of those standard manis that everyone (myself included) does again and again, year after year… How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Fearne Devilish Diamonds & Stamping

Hi there! Today’s post is about another Christmas-themed mani I did a couple of days ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 280 Pure Silver (1 coat).

This polish looks gorgeous in the bottle. But it’s actually remarkably ugly because it’s very brush-strokey. So I had to fix my mani right there! I painted 1 coat of Fearne’s Devilish Diamonds over Rimmel’s ugly polish – and it saved my mani!

I used Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (the blue polish) and my new unbranded Christmas-themed stamping plate to add a few wintry images.

I think this mani looks great. It was impossible to capture the real life beauty of this mani, but it still looks pretty nice in the picture. And yes, this mani is more wintry than christmassey, but I think that’s perfectly alright. 🙂

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / China Glaze Red Satin, Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green & Orly Hair Band / A-Z Nail Art Challenge J – Joy To The World

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today!

For this Christmas-themed mani I painted my nails with China Glaze Red Satin (ring and middle fingers, thumbs) and Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green (ring and index fingers).

I love these 2 polishes because the colours are 100% christmassey, and the polishes are of great quality. Aesome stuff!

The top coat is Orly Hair Band (1 coat) which is my favourite gold glitter top coat.

It’s packed with glitter, it dries quickly and the glitter lays flat which means that my nails feel super smooth.

I’m very happy with this mani! I do this mani every year, and I still love the red+green+gold look. I’ve also decided to make this mani part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. I’ll file it under J – Joy To The World. 🙂 How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Barry M Christmas Tree

Hi there! If you read my blog regularly you might remember that all my nail posts in October were Halloween-themed.

I really enjoyed thinking up halloweeney manis the entire month. And because of this I thought I should try to do Christmas-themed manis only in December.

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 easy coats). This is a really good white polish that’s 90p only. You need to try it!

The glitter topper I used is Barry M Christmas Tree. It’s the perfect Christmas gitter topper!

I really liked this mani! It was super easy to do, and it looked very christmassey. Doy ou agree? Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading!
