Christmas gradient and decorations

Det här inlägget skriver jag enbart på engelska, då det blir så långt annars. Hoppas det är ok!

Happy Saturday to you all! I thought I'd show you the manicure I wore for Christmas Eve - or rather a recreation of it, since I didn't bring my camera, nor did I have very good lighting to take photos in, when I went home to my parents for Christmas.

When I wore this back on the 24th of December, I chose a red background instead of the green one here. My plan was to do this with a green background from the start, however I changed into a red dress and decided red would go better with that. However, I like this green version much better! The base colour is Jolly Holly from China Glaze, a lovely forest green shimmer polish that was part of the 'Tis The Season to be Naughty and Nice Holiday collection back in 2010. It's still one of my favourite Holiday greens! After applying it, I applied Merry Christmas from Purrfect Pawlish in a diagonal gradient. This is such a Christmassy polish, the name is very appropriate! Green and red glitter and golden flakes in a clear base. I'll show you this one on its own another day.

Finally, I decided to apply these metal nail decorations from Born Pretty Store (item no. #22959), that were sent to me for review. The end result below:




The decorations come in a wheel and there are nine different motifs; bells, reindeer, presents, stars, three types of snowflakes, Christmas trees and stockings. And there's a lot of them as you can see! They are thin and easy to use. However I have rather curved nail beds and these are completely flat, so I had to bend the decorations around a pen so that they would not stick up so much on the sides. Not much to worry about though, and the end result was nice I think!




I know that the holiday season is over, so you may perhaps find more spring appropriate nail art items in the BPS nail art section. Use my code EMJK31 for 10% off your purchase.
