Christmassy nails!

Last weekend I treated myself to Jolly Holly by China Glaze, it's Christmas after all!  I love it, it's the perfect forest green colour and very festive, so on it went.  These are my poor nails after about 2 days.  Now, in fairness, I didn't use a topcoat and my nails aren't treated very well where I work, so this was them a half an hour ago :)

Me being lazy and not wanting to take it all off to start again, I brought out the big guns!  It was time for China Glaze's Party Hearty to help me out.  You can read more about Party Hearty here.

On the left is Party Hearty and on the right is Jolly Holly.

Here comes the obligatory apology for the state of my cuticles, nails and application :)

 I tried so hard to take photos that would do the nail varnish justice, but it wasn't to happen.  Above is with a flash.  In person, the glitter is so sparkley and twinkley and no matter what I tried, it wouldn't translate in the photo!
This is with no flash.  I'm happy with the results.  It means I don't have to do my nails from scratch and it'll get me through Friday :)  Christmas is a time for glitter, be it with eyeliner or eyelashes, go for it now!!

  1. I love the green colour, but i'm not really into glitter nail polish since it's a pain to remove.
