Twelve Days of Christmas. Day 6 - Penguins!

I take it back about the pudding nails, these are my new favorites. They are so so simple to do and look so cute! You could also use any colour for the base but I thought I'd use this taupe/grey colour so they look like the little baby penguins. Again, these work well with shorter, rounder nails as the shape of the nail makes the shape of the penguin, just like the pudding nails. Hope you like and I'll be back soon with day 7 :) xx

Twelve Days of Christmas. Day 5 - Snowflakes

This particular nail design is inspired by our horrible weather in the UK at the moment. It's frosty and cold and just horrible! This nail polish by 2true cosmetics is the perfect icy blue to compliment the white snowflake design and makes them really stand out. The different sized glitter within the polish gives the nail design more depth and looks as cold and icy as it is outside. Hope you're all wrapped up warm this winter and I'll be back very soon with day 6! x

Twelve Days of Christmas. Day 4 - Puddings!

Hello! These are probably my most complimented Christmas nails I've done so far. I swear every person who has seen these nails compliments me on them. People just love puddings! They were so simple to do and think they stand out and look great on shorter nails like mine. The short, round shape of my nails compliments the design and I think that they work really well together. Hope you like and if you have shorter nails like me then give these little puddings a go! x

Twelve days of Christmas. Day 3 - Holly

These are my favourite Christmas nails so far! They were a lot easier to do than I thought they would be and I like how they turned out. As I said in my last post I'm addicted to these bows so had to include one in there somewhere! Looks like a teeny tiny Christmas gift on my ring finger! Hope you like these and see you all on day four of the 'Twelve days of Christmas'.  x

Stripes and Bows

I'm steering away from Christmas themed nails just for this one post. I've had this design in mind for quite a while now, I just needed the little bows, so after I bought some off ebay I decided to just do it. I think the pink bow really stands out against the black and white stripes and is such a simple yet effective design. I really recommend buying some little 3D nail art pieces. They make a simple design look really different and I always get loads of compliments when wearing them. They stay on for quite a while too with a good nail glue. Mine lasted around 5 days (including work)! Sorry about the rubbish quality photo and I will be back very soon with day 3 of the 'Twelve days of Christmas!' x
