Party Nails | Christmas Edition






Tomorrow? Christmas is tomorrow!! As a little something for you on Christmas Eve, I thought I'd show you a quick and easy idea for how you could have your nails for this festive season. I have already decided that I am going to wear my nails like this for Christmas, and this simple yet pretty nail idea will look great for parties and going out too. 

First of all I applied a thin layer of my base coat by Barry M. This strengthens my nails and ensures that my polish lasts for a very long time without chipping.

Next I got the shade 'Bete Noir' by Estee Lauder and put two generous coatings on all of my nails. Make sure you leave around five minutes in between applying each coat to allow the polish to dry properly, as this will avoid smudging.

Finally, I took a glittery nail polish by No7 and went over the purple polish. The lighter blue tones in the glitter contrast well with the deep purple nail base, which make my nails stand out and pop in the light.

Purple Polish // Estee Lauder
Nail Effects Glitter // No7

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and be sure to let me know if you re-create this look in the comments below!
