12 posts of Christmas: 12. Merry Xmas!

I’m on the plane right now to Australia where I will be spending Christmas with my family (no we’re not Australian, just decided to migrate to warmth this year). So all that’s left is for me to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!   Advertisements

12 posts of Christmas: 11. Christmas Eve look

This is the manicure that I’ve been wearing today, on Christmas Eve. Quite simple, red base – the ultimate Christmas colour  and then a stylistic tree and heart detail in miniature gold balls (I don’t really know what else to call them!). I hope you liked it!!!

12 posts of Christmas: 10. O Christmas tree

Wow, the tenth Christmas post – almost there now! Whilst I’m waiting for the polish to dry on my nails, I will upload one last inspiration post, this time conifer-themed, before showing you my final Christmas manicure that I will wear whilst (hopefully) unwrapping gifts 😀              

12 posts of Christmas: 9. Multicoloured nails

This is another manicure from last year, multicoloured, festive and quite easy to do! I hope I inspire you, obviously any colour combinations can work – but it’s fun to use more than three colours, and alternate them across all of the nails. You can use tape to get the lines perfect, but this ‘triangle’ … Continue reading

12 posts of Christmas: 8. Guess who is coming to town?

Ho Ho Ho! There’s no Christmas without Santa Claus, St. Nick, Jultomten, or whatever name you have for him! I found some cute Santa nail art inspiration to share with you. As always, click on the image to be taken to the original tutorial/blog, and see how it was done!          

12 posts of Christmas: 7. Christmas details

These are the nails I’ve been sporting so far this week, and I love them. Flashy, bit of bling, festive and office-appropriate (well my office has really gone for it this year, we have two Christmas trees and we’re only 30 employees!) I started off with a gold base, I wore just the gold colour … Continue reading

It can a bit tricky but it is very effective! Tomorrow I’ll post another one of my own designs – stay tuned!       … Continue reading

The holidays are about many things, and presents are pretty high up on most peoples’ lists! Here are some of my favourite nail polish sets that I wouldn’t mind finding in my stocking!             What do you think? Did I miss any spectacular gift sets?

12 posts of Christmas: 4. My snowflake design

So after researching awesome ideas for snowflake designs, I had to make my own manicure. It’s an easier design than many people think, but it does require a steady hand. I would recommend the Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens for this because they are water-based. This means, if you make a mistake, you can soak … Continue reading

12 posts of Christmas: 3. Candy Cane sweetness

It’s the ultimate holiday candy right? Well, probably more so in the US, but still, it’s permeated here in Europe. I love these designs and I am so inspired by them. I think this is a pretty good idea for ‘easy’ nail art. Red nail polish, white stripes (any thickness really), and ta daa! I … Continue reading
