Blogmas Day Four: Christmas Nails

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Four! Today I’m going to talking about my Christmas nails but this year it’s a little different. If you’ve read Blogmas in the past then you know that typically when I talk about Christmas nails it’s because I’ve done a different festive manicure each week throughout the month, but this year that’s not the case.

I was doing a different manicure every week/two weeks throughout the year in general and it was really starting to take a toll on my nails. So for about 6-ish months I didn’t do anything with my nails except let them grow and maintain them and it really helped. They’re much healthier and back to looking how they should.

What I’ve been doing now that I’m back to polish is doing one for the whole month. If it chips I do fix it, but beyond that it’s one for the month and I can see the difference in my nails. They’re still super healthy and look great which I’m happy about.

When it came to deciding what I wanted to do for my Christmas nails this year I went and looked at the designs I had done in the past and drew inspiration from that.

What I did was red with silver sparkles. To do that I used the Sinful Colors 852, GoGo Girl red on all but one finger. For the silver I used the Sinful Colors 923, Queen of Beauty and put that on the remaining finger. I sealed it with the Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat 1025.

I haven’t done nails with the one that’s different in so long, so it was kinda fun to do it again. I always like the extra pop it brings and overall I’m really happy that I went with this look. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we did similar Christmas nail designs let me know and if not I’d love to know what you Christmas nails look like. 

Until next time, have fun doing your nails and I’m glad you’re enjoying Blogmas :).

Blogmas Day Twelve: My Go To Nail Polishes For Christmas

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Twelve! I can’t believe it’s already Day Twelve, it has absolutely flown by. Normally for the last post of Blogmas I show the festive nails I’ve done during December, but this year I didn’t really do super festive nails. I had them sparkly red for the first couple weeks and now they’re matte white. So what I’m going to do for this post is show you my go to nail polishes for Christmas.

I have two dark green polishes that I like to use because they give Christmas tree vibes. The first is the Dermelect Me polish. This is a peptide infused polish that is dbp, toluene and formaldehyde free. This the darker of the two polishes.

The second green is Pure Ice 303 – Free Spirit. This is a medium green, but if you want it to be darker it builds nicely. I also like to use this for St. Patrick’s Day nails.

Next I have a couple of red polishes that the holidays wouldn’t be complete without. The first is Sinful Colors 852 – GoGo Girl. This is one of those polishes that I’ve repurchased many times over the years and it’s a classic red that I think everyone should have in their polish collection.

The other red is a sparkly polish, and it’s Pure Ice 1026 – Hit The Floor. This is a darker red, but I really like it and it gives a great sparkle to any look.

Moving on, I have a couple of silver polishes that I really like. Silver isn’t a color of polish that I wear a lot, but I do like it. The first one is the p2 Techno Chrome polish in 010 Steel Drama. I always wear this with a high shine top coat, but on it’s own it does have a great shine and it lives up to it’s chrome title.

The second silver polish is a more recent purchase, but I’ve gotten a lot of use out of it so far. It’s the Sinful Colors 923 – Queen Of Beauty. This is the perfect silver sparkle, it’s great on it’s own but it also makes a fantastic topper for any other polish.

Next we have white polish, actually the polish I have on my nails right now. The Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in 110 – Hard To Get. This is a polish I use all year and it lends itself really well to shiny and matte looks.

Second to last we have a gold polish, but it’s a really interesting gold. It’s Kokie Cosmetics NP45 – Euphoria. This has some other colors in it, so when it shifts it can come across as blue/green toned. It’s very pretty.

And the last polish we have is a blue polish and it’s Salon Perfect 207 – Blue Ribbon. This is another polish I’ve repurchased many times over the years and it makes great looks for Christmas, but it’s also really nice for summer. A solid polish if you ask me.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have a go to polish or polishes for Christmas time let me know and I’d love to know what festive nails you did this year. 

Until next time, thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed Blogmas, and I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas :).
