Nail Lacquer UK Christmas Night

I’m making headway with my untried UK indies! I have a lorra love for my fellow UK indie girls, they’re all so lovely and all with lovely polishes! Here is one by Nail Lacquer UK, made by AJ, who also runs the blog Nail Lacquer UK. I just love both – she does incredible nail art on her blog and her polishes are just gorgeous!

The one I’m showing today isn’t in the shop any more, but she has plenty more pretty polishes worth a browse! I believe it was part of her Christmas collection, of which I have two 🙂 I think this polish could be worn all year-round though, it’s quite a versatile colour. Each polish by AJ comes with the cutest little charm around the neck, as shown in the first photo – I think it’s such a nice unique touch to the product :).

Penguin & Snowman Nail Art

So at Christmas more than any other time of year, all the nail brands start retweeting and sharing all our festive manicures and nail art. Yes I have been sucked onto the bandwagon, mainly because I love Christmas, I’ve regretted not doing it previous years, it’s cute, and I haven’t done nail art in ages!

Growing up my favourite animal was a penguin (they are still in the top running) and I always had a trademark simple penguin drawing I would put everywhere. I love them, I think they are super cute little animals 🙂 (birds?). And snowmen… what better to get you in the festive mood!

This is a super easy design to create, it definitely looks better in person than in these photos but I’ll explain to you how to create the designs step-by-step.

Elegant Touch Silver Crystal Glitter

Press Sample

Hello lovelies! There’s a lot of lovely Christmassy ideas for nails flying around at the moment, especially in the false nails region of things. I love falsies for the simple fact that when you’re having a lazy day, or you have a headache and can’t face the fumes, or you’re in a rush, you can just pop them on in 5 minutes and you’re ready to go with perfect nails… what could be better?!

The other day I reviewed Elegant Touch Christmas Reindeer falsies, which to be honest I don’t think could ever be beaten on the awesome falsie factor, but these are amazing for a different reason. If you LOVE glitter, but HATE removal, these are the nails for you!!

Barry M Tinsel Town (Boots Exclusive Limited Edition)

Bar glitter. Some people love it, some people hate it, some people are on the fence. Count me as on the fence – I love it as long as you don’t layer it up like hair!! Barry M have definitely dealt us the generous hand when it comes to bar glitter this year. We had five Confetti Effects, and now we have two LE bar glitter beauties in Boots and Superdrug. (I have both because I am a long-accepted nail polish hoarder and obsessive! The second I heard these were out I trotted down to Boots & Superdrug!). I’ve seen a fair few blogposts about people hating the look. And plenty of people who love it. I honestly think this one is totally dependent on what you pair it with. If you pair it with shimmer it’s going to clash. If you pair it with anything that doesn’t go with either green, blue or red, it’s going to clash. And if you layer it IT WILL LOOK LIKE HAIR! I promise you!

I decided to pair it with my autumn fave: OPI In The Cable Car-Pool Lane. Burgundy – I tell you, you cannot go wrong with burgundy!!

Hello lovelies! <3 I have a spectacularly Christmassy product for you today!! I adore these cute little falsies and I’ve had SO many compliments on them. If I didn’t have so many products to review I’d be tempted to glue these on and keep them for the duration!

These are Elegant Touch’s Christmas Reindeer false nails… they are gorgeous, and don’t look totally false either. Elegant Touch have come out with quite a collection of Christmas nails, so get your hands on them while you can!
