Nail Of The Day – Essence The Gel Nail Polish 33 Wild White Days & Barry M Christmas Tree

christmas nailsHi there! If you read my blog regularly, you know I’m trying to complete the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge as a lifetime nail challenge.

However, I couldn’t find any christmassey challenges, so I’m putting the nail challenge on hold for a few weeks.

Now onto today’s mani! I painted my nails with Essence The Gel Polish 33 Wild White Days (one coat). I love this polish. And I hate it.

I love it because it’s opaque in one coat. But I hate it because the formula is a complete nightmare. It’s thick and goopy – and nail polish thinner doesn’t help. And it’s impossible to apply it without making a mess.

Anyway, I was going for a christmassey mani, so I applied one of my favourite christmas glitter toppers, Barry M Christmas Tree. This is a fantastic topper – it’s packed with glitter (I applied one coat of topper) and it dries reasonably quickly. I love it!

I’ve done the same mani last year but I’m OK with that because I love the white base and the christmassey glitter. I really love the look of this mani because it’s not the standard ‘Mrs Santa Red’. What do you think? Do you like this mani? Or is it too much glitter? Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for stopping by!
