I have painted nails all year round and in all honesty I do sometimes get a bit bored of doing them. There is one time of year that I actually enjoy doing them and that is in the lead up to Christmas! I am not normally a huge lover of glitter but this all seems to change around Christmas time where I just can’t get enough of the stuff. It’s like my brain suddenly thinks ‘ooh Christmas, must coat myself in copious amounts of glitter!’. Does anyone else get this? Please tell me that it’s not just me!
Making your nails a bit festive is so, so easy. All you need is a plain base coat and some glitter to shove on the top. As always, I have used Barry M. If you’re a regular reader you’ll know I am obsessed with Barry M nail paint and I haven’t yet found a brand that is of the same quality.
For my simple, festive nails I used a plain white Gelly Polish and coated it in silver glitter. I was going for a kinda snowy look; what d’you think?!
Using the glitter as a top coat makes the polish last FOREVER and it also makes my nails feel really strong. Barry M nail polish usually stays on for about 4 days chip free for me but with glitter on top this time frame is usually doubled.
I have ordered some nail stickers from eBay so I will be posting some more festive nails over the next couple of weeks. What’s your favourite way to do your nails over the festive period? Let me know in the comments!
