I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas so far! I’m still in the midst of celebrating with various friends and family visiting so just a quick post for today. I have some Freckles Polish colours for you, which I picked up on sale before Julieann took break from the shop. I’m not sure when she’ll be back but I hope it’ll be soon as these polishes are gorgeous.
As you may (or may not) be able to tell from the title I have 3 of the polishes from The Bookouture Girls Collection from the UK indie nail polish brand Ard As Nails.
Blissful Bookworm is a lovely deep purple with a strong holographic finish. It’s not as pigmented as Dark Night but it still only takes two coats – shown without topcoat.
Kitty’s Secret is a gorgeous deep berry red leaning pink. Again it is very pigmented and has a strong holographic finish – two coats shown without topcoat.
All 3 of these polishes have an amazing amount of holographic glitters in, although the Dark Knight is more ‘subtle’, and they both take just 2 coats each for full coverage which is fab. Also – don’t they look amazing matte?
You can get these from the website for £3.50 each for 4.5ml and £6.50 for 15ml.
I wish the title was true! I can’t remember the last time I had a white Christmas where I live! Oh well.. one day. This is just a quick post to show you one of my Christmas nail arts, featuring Ethereal Lacquer – Neptune. So enjoy..
I started off painting all my nails with Barry M Matte White, then on my index and pinky I applied 1-2 coats of Neptune. I bought this nail polish from Mei Mei Signatures a long time ago, so I’m not even sure it’s available anymore.. Anyway I thought it felt quite christmas-y with it’s mixture of various sized blue and silver hex and circle glitters. I has a crelly white base so does need a base colour really and the larger glitters do need a bit fishing and careful placement!
I then did a sponge gradient using Barry M Matte White, Huckleberry and Guava on my ring and index fingers and applied a fast dry top coat. Once this had dried I used BM Silver Foil Effect polish and the snowflake designs on Born Pretty Store plate m59, which is from 16 piece bundle (now unavailable, sorry!). And that was it 🙂 It didn’t take to long at all.
Is everyone is the Christmas spirit yet?! I’m so excited despite working a LOT!
