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!

Easy Christmas Nail Ideas – Red, Green, Gold, Trees and Tinsel

Hi there! As Christmas isn’t really that far away, I thought I’d show you a few easy Christmas nail ideas. You can click the photo to enlarge it. And now let’s get started!

The first mani is one anyone can do. I chose China Glaze With Love and Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green as my base colours. The gold glitter topper is Essie As Gold As It Gets.

Mani number two is another quick and easy one. The green polish is (again) Astor’s Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green. I teamed up the pretty green polish with Beauty UK’s White and a no-name iridescent white shimmer polish. The tree images can be found on Pueen’s 42 plate (Love Elements set).

I really love the third mani. I called it Tinsel in the Snow. 🙂 The white base is Beauty UK’s White nail polish – again. The cute topper I used is Barry M’s Christmas Tree – a limited edition from 2014 (I think). This topper is packed with green micro, bar and hex glitter, red glitter flakes, golden holo hex glitter and silver holo stars.

I did these manis last year. But I’m sure I’ll be doing something similar again this year because green, red, gold, trees and tinsel are just perfect for Christmas-themed manis. I’ll probably do a few different manis as well, but I thought I’d share these manis with you before Christmas – just in case you’re looking for easy Christmas nail art inspiration.
