Belated Christmas Nail Art

Merry Christmas two days ago!

Sorry I’m a bit late with the Christmas nails but you know how the festive season is.. Crazy busy and you get distracted by all the lights and decorations hehehe! I hope you all had a great Christmas!

I did some nail art for my friend on Christmas Eve to get right into the festivities and they turned out great!

I used a plain black creme base colour on the pinky then layered NYX Dorothy and OPI Fresh Frog of Bel Air over the top, for the Rudolph nail I used two coats of OPI Samoan Sand then OPI Wooden Shoe Like To Know for the head and a dotting tool with China Glaze Just Be-Claws for the nose and a black striper for the antlers. The Santa suit is China Glaze Hey Sailor (one of my favourite red cremes) then black, white and gold stripers. Lastly the Santa hat is OPI Samoan Sand, CG Hey Sailor and a white creme polish.

I think they turned out so great! My fave is Rudolph but which one is your favourite?

Snowman Nails

Hi!

Geez, Christmas is sooooo close! I am still on the hunt for one more present.. Ugh! Hopefully I can suss that out soon.

Anyway, I have a really pretty and cute manicure to share with you for Christmas today. I used two coats of Essie Smooth Sailing and layered Ciate Confetti over the top. I then used a dotting tool to make the snowman head, eyes and nose then a black striper to make the hat. It was a really easy manicure to do and I think it looks really great. I saw the design on Concrete and Nail Polish and thought it looked really great!

I have got the ciate advent calendar this year but I haven’t had a chance to use any of the polishes! This is the first one I’ve tried (apart from the base coat). Hopefully I’ll be able to try out more of the polishes soon!

Are you ready for Christmas?

Christmas Sweater Inspired Nails

Happy holidays!

I finally had time to try (read : attempt) Christmas nails again since it’s very nearly Christmas! Last year I did a nail art challenge and I was doing my nails every day so it’s a big contrast this year.

I started off with a red base colour on all of my nails and used a white striper and gold polish to create various sweater-esque designs on my nails. I’m not too happy with the snowflake on my ring finger or the chevron on my middle finger but oh well! I gave it a try!

Face of Australia Carnivale Polish

Hello!

I know I’ve been really slack with blogging. I can’t make any promises with the regularity of my blogging at this stage.. It’s hard to explain but basically shit hit the fan and I have been feeling down recently and just haven’t had the energy or desire to do my nails.. Yes it sucks but things can only get better, right? Keeping it extremely vague..

Anyhow! As you might know, I recently went to Australia for a holiday and I picked up quite a few polishes. I have two to share with you today by Face of Australia from the Carnivale collection. These were actually the only two left in the shop so I didn’t get to choose from the whole collection but these are really prettyyyyyy. I tried these because I wanted a glitter bomb and boy howdy did it get it! The purple is called Masquerade and the green/teal is called Ferris Wheel. I look at the two colours together and I see a mermaid fart or something like that! Haha!

I put top coat on these because I actually didn’t know that they are textured finish. I think it looks good with it! Sooooo glittery.

Anyhow, have a great Christmas holiday and happy new year. Hopefully I will blog again before this 2013 year is out and hopefully I get a renewed love for polish soon. Thanks to all my followers over this last year!
