Just a short post today to show you the nails I am rocking this week.
I decided to go for a slightly wintery theme and try out two new nail varnishes I have recently bought.
One lovely pastel blue nail varnish and a very cool glitter one. I love this type of glitter because it has a variety of glitter shapes in it meaning each nail is different and you can keep layering it until you get the desired effect.
I began by removing last week’s nail art and giving my nails a quick file. I love my glass nail file because it is meant to last forever and I really can’t stand the feel of emery boards!
I then gave my nails two coats of this fresh pastel blue colour.
When the base colour had dried, I added a couple of layers of my glitter nail varnish until I was happy each nail had an even coverage of small and large pieces on them.
To seal the look and make it last the week, I finished off with a top coat of clear nail varnish.
I love this colour combination and it reminds me of all the blue, sparkly Christmas decorations that are starting to appear in the shops now.
I’m sorry, I can’t help mentioning the ‘C’ word again. I have spent most evenings this week buying gifts online (I cannot deal with the crowds this year!) and I have the most exciting weekend planned…I will be wearing my Christmas pyjamas, drinking mulled wine, watching Christmas films and decorating our house ready for our first Christmas in it. I feel like this weekend is the calm before the storm as the subsequent weekends are already packed with visits, Christmas parties and a trip to London – bring it on! xxx
