I find it hard to not go over the top with my nails at the best of times, but when it's Christmas I just can't resist! Every time I sit down to paint my nails, I plan to paint them something simple and chic but end up with something completely over the top.
This time, what started with an accent nail ended with full on christmas wrapping paper nails. Essie 'Fishnet Stockings' provided the chic, whilst Essie 'Beyond Cosy' brought the sparkle. I love deep reds with glitter and 'Beyond Cosy' sits somewhere between a silver and gold glitter which is why I love it. I simply added alternate dots to the nails using my Bourjois dotting tool.
With a bit of patience and something good to watch on TV, it takes no time at all and looks really pretty. I coated on a thick layer of Seche Vite to make it last, but don't forget to wait until the dots are completely dry!
I have a feeling my nails will be exclusively festive for the rest of the month…. Oh well, I'm just going to embrace being OTT.
