The Christmas Manicure

Having my nails look festive and colourful for Christmas has become one of my favourite beauty things to do over the holiday season. Today I thought I would share the manicure I opted for on Christmas day. In fact it is the same combination I wore last year which I loved so much I decided to repeat again this time around.

It is safe to say at this point i'm a big fan of Essie polishes. They wear really well on my nails and they have one of the best colour selections. For this look I applied 2 coats of Bahama Mama which is a gorgeous plum shade and looks great on it's own. It has a slight pinky red tone to it as well which is why I love pairing it with Leading Lady which is also a plum shade with fine pink glitter through it. Unlike most glitter polishes this isn't chunky and is fairly subtle so you can see the glitter straight away. The glitter does however catch the light and look so pretty. I put some Seche Vite top coat over to make the nails look even more glossy.

I really do love this combination together as it feels like a grown up way to get away with some glitter. By using a base colour it also makes it a lot easier to remove rather than painting the glitter straight onto the nails. Just looking at my nails really helped to get me into the festive spirit.

Essie Nail Polishes retail for £7.99. 

What manicure did you go for over the Christmas period?
