*spins around in happy frantic circles like a puppy*
I’m really relishing the long road up to Christmas – for most of my life, it’s been marred by exams or work, and I often end up sitting down on Christmas morning thinking “well, that was a gyp”. So this year, responsibility-free, I am milking Christmas for all it’s worth. I plan to go holly and ivy picking this weekend. Deck the halls!
Anyhow – regarding the post title – If you haven’t heard that lyric before, I suggest you listen to Lady GaGa’s amazeballs Christmas song, Christmas Tree. It has been stuck in my head since mid November. Here’s a linky!
*edit – ugh Youtube won’t let me embed the video because it contains stupid content from UMG. Gah. UMG is getting coal from Santa this Christmas*
I’ve been so excited to try out Christmas nail art. I couldn’t make my mind up on what to paint on them, so I tried out a few different designs – one on each nail. Here’s what happened:
Here are the polishes I used:
Thumb – Wet n Wild Red Red, and Essence Tip Painter (white)
Index finger – Essence Multi Dimension 19 Rock n Roll (silver), and Wet n Wild Red Red
Middle finger – Essence Colour & Go 18 Check Me Out (base green), Rimmel Play Fast 800 Camouflage (tree green), and Wet n Wild Red Red. Also nicked a little star from a bottle of Yssy Nail Polish (no name, but is clear with holographic hex glitter and holographic stars)
Ring finger – Essence Multi Dimension 64 Trendsetter (teal green), and Essence Multi Dimension 19 Rock n Roll (silver)
Baby finger – Wet n Wild Red Red as a base coat, followed by 2 coats of W7 Nail Polish 2 Red Dazzle.
Time for some pic spam – warning, my cuticles are just… well, you were warned.
Another combination I tried this week is a straight-forward, one nail green, one nail red pattern – for this I used Rimmel Camouflage and Wet n Wild Red Red (which is THE perfect Christmas red, as you might have guess from my copious usage of it in the above photos).
Are you guys going to try out nail art this Christmas? Or will you be sticking to metallics and glitters?
P.s. the weather here has been MAAAAD altogether. Check out my front lawn, earlier this week.
… and the weather forecast on the RTE website…
But my little pup pup could care less because it means she gets to stay in my room at night 🙂
