Blogmas Day 19 – Christmas Nails

christmas-nails-min

About a week ago I showed you some Christmas nails that I had bought at Clicks. Now I know that those nails are not everyone’s cup of tea so today I am showing you nails that you can do yourself at home. They are nothing particularly fancy but they are what I have been rocking for the past week or so.

During Blogmas I also showed you what I had bought from the Essence Little X-Mas Factory Collection. The nail polish that I have used for this nail look comes from that collection. As you can see, it is a really simple look but because of the green and gold I feel as though it definitely gives you that festive feeling.

I also want to point out that I do not think that I am a brilliant nail painter (is that what I should call it?!) but I am very happy with how these turned out. I am also so happy with the length of my nails at the moment but I have to cut them, probably soon, because I need to try out the new festive nails that I purchased! So I have mixed feelings about that to be honest.

This just gives you a better idea of the two colours that I used. The green one is 04 – Meet Me Under the Mistletoe and the gold one is 01 I Still Believe in Santa Claus. The colours look the same on your nails as they do in the bottle, which is rare. Also, I only needed one coat to get this look which I think is pretty impressive!

This has been on for a week and I only needed to touch up two nails. The reason for that is because I was doing loads of cleaning. So this nail polish stays on well!

What Christmas nails have you been rocking lately? Let me know in the comments below!

Love,

Kirsty

    These are gorgeous! I rarely paint my nails but I do like to for special occasions, especially Christmas!

      I rarely paint mine either but that is partly because I am super lazy about it haha!

    I adore the I still believe in Santa Claus-nails! I think this year I’m going to rock a bright red colour on my nails.

    I love this! I’m swaying between getting a wine red/burgundy or a forest green next time I get my nails done…
