Whenever Christmas is around the corner, us girls really like to get in the festive spirit, from Christmas shopping, present wrapping, decorating the house right down to our nails. Is it just me that when its near Christmas and I’m going to paint my nails they have to be somewhat Christmassy or it just feels wrong! I recently bought a Birchbox which you can find out more about HERE. One of the beauty items I received was a Nail Rock nail varnish and pot of matching red glitter, it comes in a little set together. I was so pleased to see this in my beauty box and to give it a try, red and sparkly, doesn’t get more Christmassy than that!
It’s really simple to use all you have to do is paint your nails with a base coat of your choice, then paint your nails with the red nail varnish and leave to dry. When your first coat is dry that’s when the glitter fun can start, you need to do a second coat of the red nail polish then when the nails are still wet, simply dip your nail into the pot of matching glitter and press firmly on your coloured nails!
It does get a little messy so I suggest you put a piece of paper or something underneath your hands to catch the glitter, now at this point like I was your fingers are probably covered in glitter but its pretty easy to sort, I got a make up brush and carefully brushed around the nails to brush the excess glitter off. Then all you have to do is pour the excess glitter on the paper back in to the pot so you don’t waste any. Allow your nails to dry for at least 15 mins, but I found they dried pretty quickly but I was careful until I knew for sure they we’re dry.
I really love the effect this sparkly duo gives, I thought it was going to be like novel glitter nail varnish, but it is so pretty and it looks like it would be a lot harder to create this look on your nails than it is! I think I have found my perfect festive nail look this Christmas and I will be wearing this Christmas day!
Merry Christmas beautiful people ?
