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 – 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 / 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 / Revlon Colorstay 180 Indigo Night, Stamping & Water Decals

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

I started by painting my nails with Revlon Colorstay 180 Indigo Night (2 coats).

I love this polish. The formula is a dream to work with, and the colour is stunning.

I used my new unbranded Christmas-themed stamping plate and Orly Snow Cone (which is my favourite light blue polish) to stamp images onto my nails.

The stamping plate isn’t the best because the images didn’t transfer perfectly. However, no one gets that close to my nails in real life. So no one noticed. 🙂

I used water decals on my ring fingers to make the mani look more christmassey, and I think it worked! By the way, I’m sorry about those blue splotches in the image. I don’t know where they came from. It can only be a technical issue with the camera. It’s just unfortunate that I didn’t notice it until I wrote the post. And now I’m already 2 coats of polish into a new mani…

All in all I’m happy with this mani. Whilst the stamped images didn’t turn out to be perfect, I still think this mani looks really nice. I also love the blue + light blue + red theme because it’s different from all those standard red/green/gold and blue/silver manis.

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

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 231 Blue-Eyed Girl & Essence Mountain Calling Snow Effect Top Coat 01 Snow Alert / Nail Art Challenge #11 Polka Dots

Rimmel Blue Eyed GirlHi there! Today’s post is about another mani I did recently.

This mani is my attempt at Polka Dots – which is challenge #11 of the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. I don’t really like polka dot manis, so this is the closest I’ll ever get to sporting polka dots on my nails.

Anyway, with this mani I was going for a blue and white Christmas look. Whilst I think red, green and gold are the typical Christmas colours, quite a few people seem to prefer blue, silver and white.

So for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 231 Blue-Eyed Girl (2 coats).

And I used a limited edition topper – Essence Mountain Calling Snow Effect Top Coat 01 Snow Alert.

Does this mani look christmassey? No, not really. But I think it looks like winter. And the white glitter really looks like snow. And I actually like how this mani isn’t all red, green & gold. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Bourjois So Lacque 61 Vert Chlorophylle & Barry M Jingle Bells / Nail Art Challenge #17 Glitter

Christmas NailsHi there! I’m continuing with the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge, and I’m also doing Christmas manis this month. And today’s nail art challenge is #17 Glitter!

For this easy mani I painted my nails with Bourjois So Lacque 61 Vert Chlorophylle (2 coats). I really like this polish – it dries reasonably quickly and the formula is easy to work with.

The glitter polish is one that sat in my stash for quite some time. It’s Barry M Jingle Bells, a cute gold and red limited edition glitter topper from 2014.

So whilst this mani is far from being unique, it’s a wearable green/glitter Christmas mani that shouldn’t raise too many eyebrows. 🙂

How do you like this mani? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for reading!
