This year, my choice of festive mani was quite easy and straightforward - red, gold and glitter! That's Christmas at its best, isn't it? I have worn this manicure for Christmas Eve, Christmas day and the entire following week, and just looking at my nails made me feel happy and festive.
The base colour is n°754 Pandore by Dior, a beautiful, bright red with orange undertones. I bought this nail polish this summer because it was the perfect shade for that season, however it is also a classic colour that can be worn throughout the year - and especially around Christmas time!
On my ring finger, I am wearing three coats of pure gold glitter, All Sparkly and Gold by OPI. This is one of my favourite nail polishes, it is slightly irritating to remove but it just looks amazing. On my other nails, I have decided to go for bigger chunks of glitter, with my oldie but goodie Stay Golden by H&M. I have applied it in a sort of gradient effect so that my nails weren't completely covered in glitter.
I have noticed that generally when you use glitter nail polishes, you can go without top coat because the extra layer of glitter gives you a longer lasting effect already. You can go a full week with neat nails if you've got glitter on! Another good reason to wear these sparkly nail polishes again and again, right? ;)
How did you paint your nails for the festive season this year?
