It’s been a good weekend so far; quiet, but a good’un. There have been Christmas lights, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, Ian’s pulled pork and some more meal planning for the week ahead.
Quiet weekends also mean there is more time for the things you can put off when you’re busy and that includes some pampering! I love a hair and face mask whilst soaking in a long bubble bath on a Sunday night and my weekly manicure usually happens then too.
I don’t believe you need to banish all pastel shades from your nails in the colder months, especially when you can add a little festive sparkle with some glittery polka dots!
Mint green is probably one of my favourite colours to wear on my nails. I think it looks fresh and seems to stay on trend.
For my base colour this week, I painted on two layers of ELF’s Mint Cream.
I then took a nail dotter and Essie’s Beyond Cosy and added my polka dots in a random pattern. I even did my right hand which proves this nail art is very simple and straightforward to attempt!
Finished off with a layer of Seche Vite, this manicure lasted me a week with only one nail chipping after some rigorous washing up.
These glittery polka dots are quite subtle on a pastel nail but I think you could swap the base colour for a deep burgundy or navy blue for a little sparkle in December.
