NOTD: Christmas Edition!

Hey Beauties!

Today’s post is going to be about the nails that I will be wearing Christmas Day =).  I can’t believe it is almost here!  This year has flown by, I’ve been very busy =).

My Right Hand

I have China Glaze “Phat Santa” on my first three fingers, topped with China Glaze “Ruby Pumps”, for a festive sparkly red.  Then I have Orly “Luxe” on my ring finger with designs in Butter London “British Racing Green”.

My Left Hand

On my pinkies I tried something new.  I have China Glaze “White on White” (I think?  It’s packed away now so I can’t check!) and the candy cane stripes are done with striping tape.  I ordered a whole bunch on eBay (for about $2), and they finally came, so I figured I would try them out.  It is fairly easy to work with, but very thin.  If you lose the end good luck finding it again!  The biggest issue I have with it is that the ends peel up a bit, and I’ve had to file them down.  Also the colour seemed to fade really fast.  This was a bright sparkly red, but now looks more pink…  You need a couple coats of good thick top-coat over top to make them feel smooth.  I will keep trying these as I have more than I could use in a lifetime, and will keep you posted!

I hope you liked my Christmas Nails!

Please tweet me photos of your festive nails, I love to see them and get inspired!  @wstcoastbeauty

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?

The photo on the left shows the colour of “Merry Berry” the most accurately.
