NOTD: Berry Champagne

Hey Beauties!

This is my first attempt at blogging from my phone. We’ll see how it works! Today’s post is another NOTD. Still festive, but a little bit more subtle than the last two. I am in love with these colours though!

The main colour is Merry Berry from China Glaze. It is a beautiful rich berry red creme. I can see wearing this colour all through the season! (if I wasn’t so fickle with my nail polish). The accent nail is Champagne Kisses, also by China Glaze. With this colour I think I have found my perfect glitter! It is a beautiful champagne gold colour. Not overly gold and cool toned, it really works like a neutral. It suits my skintone perfectly and is stunning with the red!

When it started to chip badly (I’m on holiday and didn’t bring base/top coat with me, just the two colours for touch-ups) I took it all off and started from scratch.  This is what I came up with!  I used Merry Berry (2 coats) as a base on all of my nails.  Once it was fully dried I used scotch tape cut into points to make an outline of the shape that I wanted to stay red.  I then painted on a thick layer of Champagne Kisses and removed the tape while it was still wet.  That’s how I got the triangle shapes!

What do you think? Are these colours you would wear? Do you like more subtle holiday looks like this one? Or do you prefer to rock nails like this or this during the holiday season?

NOTD: Berries and Champagne

Hey Beauties!

Here is my next Christmas NOTD: Berries and Champagne!

The main colour is China Glaze “Merry Berry” and the accent nail is “Champagne Kisses”.  Both are from this year’s holiday collection.

Merry Berry is a gorgeous deep red berry colour and Champagne Kisses is my perfect glitter colour!  It’s a pretty gold, but very warm toned, so it goes very nicely with my skin colour.  =)  Together I think they are very festive, but in an understated and classic way.

What do you think?  Did you get any colours from the new collection?
