To be honest, the only thing remotely Christmassy about this nail design is the glitter! I started off with a layer of Rimmel Green With Envy and then sponged some Ciaté Angel Wings over it. I was going for an icy effect but was a bit heavy handed with the Angel Wings so it didn’t look great. I decided to add some purple glitter and I really liked the end result. What do you reckon?
This gradient worked so much better than the one I tried last week! I much prefer the colours and I managed to get the gradient a lot smoother. This time I actually used three colours: No7 Stand Back as the base with Rimmel Green With Envy and No7 Dollar to make the gradient. What do you think?I’m now off to try and decide how to do my nails for my friends wedding tomorrow (she’s been planning the big day for over a year now and it’s really exciting that it’s finally here!). I had ordered Nubar 2010 to wear for the wedding but it hasn’t arrived in time which is really annoying! If you have any suggestions please let me know – I’ll be wearing a navy bridesmaids dress with nude heels.
For the first time in ages, this week I attempted some sort of nail art! I went with a simple design – I’ve done a similar one before so was pretty sure it would work out. I’ve used Rimmel Green With Envy and Ciaté Sand Dune. I really like these two colours together and I think they complement each other well although next time I might try to make the tips a little smaller. I also could probably have done with an extra coat of gold as there are a few little turquoise bits showing through but I don’t think it’s anything major. My lines are a little wonky but it’s not all that noticeable from a distance! What do you think?
Green With Envy is one of the 60 second polishes from Rimmel. I’ve just bought a new one as my last one went all gloopy and I’ve fallen in love with the colour all over again. It’s so bright and is the perfect turquoise!
Recently I’ve only been wearing bright coloured nail varnish so I thought I’d go for something a bit more simple this time. I’m wearing a Rimmel 60 Seconds polish called Ethereal. It’s a subtle pink shimmer which has peach tones in some lights. I’m only wearing one coat here but I really like it!
I’m pretty sure I’ve already done a Nails of the Week post this week but never mind – it’s Christmas! I used a Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish for the base (819 Green With Envy) which normally looks turquoise but adding the gold glitter has made it look much more green. It looks different colours in different lights so here are a few photos for you……
I’m not going to have time to post now until after Christmas so I hope you all have a lovely few Christmassy days!
