Christmas nails

As we all know the festive season is immensely busy! Therefore, there has been a lack of blog posts from me over the past week or so! 

However, I am now back and very keen to update you of all of my Christmas excitement, gifts and such. 

Over the Christmas period it is a great time to always be painting and doing my nails. I'm the sort of person who will always always have nail varnish on and I frequently change colours and try out new styles. 

As Christmas has been super super busy, I haven't had much time to try out proper nail art as such. But I have gone glitter mad!!!! 

For my first Christmas nails, I went for a simple blue Barry m colour, number 294, cyan blue. It almost reminded me of really cold frost and snowflakes. I then used the models own clothes show live, showstopper nail varnish  which is chunky blue glitter bits, however they look silver on my nails. 

 I also tried out another models own glitter nail varnish, sunset chill out. I really like this glitter nail polish as it is made up of a range of colours such as blue, pink and gold and it looks different depending on the colour you put behind it. Here I used another Barry M, coral. However, I wasn't really a fan as it reminded me a bit of a barbie girl theme.

A few days later I changed the background back to the Barry M, cyan blue and again used the sunset chill out nail varnish, getting a completely different look. I have to say I am a much bigger fan of blues and purples on my nails, so I thought that these looked fab and very glittery and festive. 

Finally, right before Christmas I decided I must have a bit more of a festive touch. I did try and paint some festive images onto my nails however, this did not go to plan and therefore I resulted back to the glitter style again. 

Here, I again used a Barry M nail colour in the background, this time, 290, spring green. I love this green colour as it stands out and it reminded me of Christmas trees! I then used yet another models own glitter, dancing queen. Which has lots of lovely green, gold and silver specs of glitter!! 

Now who knows what my nails will be like for new year!!

I got a lot of lovely new nail polish for Christmas, so I'm sure there will be much more nail posts to come.

I also found I got several complements from these nail varnishs, mostly when put shopping, so give them a try!! 

However, the glitter is a nightmare to get off!! 

Look out for some more post Christmas blog posts! 

Happy new year!!
