Mr and Mrs Claus

Mr and Mrs Claus Nail Art

Hello!

It’s Christmas Eve! Hurray! I’m super excited… even though I’m currently at work whilst you’re reading this.. (scheduled post!) but it does make the time pass quicker! I thought I would do Mr and Mrs Claus for my christmas eve nail art. Enjoy!

Mr and Mrs Claus

For this nail art I started with one coat of NYC Pinstripe White (reviewed here) on my index and pinky and 2 coats of China Glaze Just Be-Claws on my middle and ring finger. I wanted Mr and Mrs Claus to sparkle! I then added one coat of Moyra Angel Dust over the white and let it dry whilst I did the details on my other fingers. I used a dotting tool to add the white fluff to their coats and acrylic paint and a nail art brush to add the belts. The gold detailing was done using China Glaze Mingle with Kringle, which I also brushed over Angel Dust using a fan brush. I’m not sure about this bit but oh well… I finished the Mr and Mrs off with a top coat and it’s done. Very festive! I actually received the China Glaze polishes last year for Christmas and I haven’t really worn any of the reds that I got but now is the right time!

I hope you all have a very lovely Christmas, enjoy the food and let all your wishes come true!

My swatches of days 21-24 from my Ciaté minimanimonth will be up on boxing day 🙂

Merry Christmas!

Ciaté Mini Mani Month: 20-24

Hello 🙂

Today I have the final 5 polishes in my Ciaté Mini Mani Month – 20-24.

Ciate ivory queen, confetti, christmas tree caviar, locket, serendipity Ciate ivory queen, confetti, christmas tree caviar, locket

Day 20: Ivory Queen. Very similar to Members Only but slightly more opaque and a little less shimmery. 2 coats, no topcoat. Consistency is fine.

Day 21: Confetti. A holographic glitter. 3 coats isn’t quite full coverage but it is pretty decent.

Day 22: Christmas Tree Caviar. Green, red and cream caviar pearls, which I don’t like. Meh – that’s all I have to say.

Day 23: LocketA shimmery silver base with multiple glitter sizes – also silver. Coverage isn’t great, could probably do with a silver base colour. 3 coats, no topcoat.

Ciate Serendipity

Day 24: Serendipity. A pink/red glitter. Full coverage in just 2 coats. I actually really love this pink. Shown without topcoat.

4/5 – only one I really didn’t like is the caviar pearls.

Overall this calendar was good but some of the colours were a bit same-y… which was a little bit of a shame. You can see the other colours here from Days 1-45-89-14 and 15-19.
