Christmassy Nails

I heart glittery nail varnish, so when I was in Sally's Beauty Supply in Newry a while back and saw these varnishes, I had to get them.  They're part of the China Glaze Wizard of Ooh Ahz collection which I only found out after researching them when I got home.  It was so hard to capture the absolute gorgeousness of these nail varnishes, and I spent ages trying to get some good photos, so these are the best I could find :)

These are the ones I got:

Left: Ruby Pumps, Middle: The Ten Man, Right: Dorothy Who?

First up we have The Ten Man.  It is a silvery pearl base with silver sparkles in it.  The pictures below shows 3 coats of the nail varnish.  It's hard to get it to look really sparkley, but it gives a lovely muted silver look without being too garish.  It might be nice over a darker base coat, so I might try that.  The photo with flash shows the sparkles a lot more, very pretty.

Next up we have Dorothy Who?  This is an electric blue base with blue and silver sparkles.  The sparkles show up a lot brighter in daylight but it's a lot more subtle in darker light.

 Finally we have my favourite.  If Christmas was a nail varnish, it would be this one, Ruby Pumps.  It is a gorgeous shade of ruby red with tiny red glitter particles.  It is absolutely gorgeous on and I will be wearing it around the Christmas season for sure! Please excuse the sloppy application of this one :)  This is the one that I found the hardest to photograph because no matter what I did, I couldn't get the sparkle it has in real life into the photo.

These nail varnish were around £6 in Sally's Beauty Supply a few months ago.  I'm sure there are Ebay sellers who will have them for cheaper, I just couldn't wait that long to have them!

If anyone has any other Christmassy suggestions, just leave a comment below :)
