Jingle all the way! I was so pleased to get another pot of glitter! Today’s is Jingle belle and it gives you the most christmassy nails I have ever seen. It’s a red glitter with green and gold tones in it. For me the main colours of christmas are red, green and gold so I think that they have got it bang on here. I painted my nails with boudoir and then lightly sprinkled the glitter over the top. I waited for a few minutes to wash my hands but when I did barely any glitter came off and my nails look nice and neat. It’s a messy job and at times emotional (it was in my case when I accidentally put the boudoir nail polish brush into the tub of glitter without realising.. boudoir is now ruined.) but it was completely worth it. I am nearly half way through my Ciaté calendar now and I can honestly say I will be a lost woman without it. Hope you’ve all enjoyed my posts so far!
I’m keeping this post short and sweet as I’ve got a mountain of work to do and not nearly enough time hence why this post has gone up a few hours later than normal. Today’s polish was called encore! Which is quite relevant as I will be using it encore! When I put it on, I thought that this colour would have been perfect a couple of months ago when it was fall/autumn in Germany as it reminded me of all the colours you see when leaves start to fall. The colour can only be described as a brick red and it conveniently went with my jumper that I put on today! Despite the fact I had to get on and do some jobs as soon as I’d painted my nails, they have remained relatively smudge free and shiny.
So to sum it up I’ve had 3 reds and 2 glitter polishes for my first 5 days so I’m predicting something completely different for tomorrow such as a purple or a blue. Watch this Space!
Today was not a good day to begin with. The baby normally act’s as my alarm clock but today she decided to treat herself to a lie in, meaning I didn’t wake up either and as a result missing my morning lectures. Feeling guilty, I decided to cheer myself up by opening today’s window, but was sad to see a bright orange nail polish. It’s nothing personal against the colour but when I was pregnant, I had a bright orange pair of maternity jeans and the thought of them also brings horrible memories of heartburn, sickness and lack of comfort.
I reluctantly took off yesterdays polish to put this on, only to be pleasantly surprised! It has a lovely glossy finish and looks more like a bright red on the nails. The finish of these nail polishes has really converted me into investing a bit more money into my nail varnishes from now on because these seem to be giving a manicured finish. The polish today is called Hopscotch which is quite a nice name and took the sting away from the fact I had to wear bright orange for the day. I will definitely wear this polish again and I strongly recommend it for people looking for a bright red polish. Thank you Ciaté for getting me out of my bad mood.
