Festive Nails

Christmas is the perfect time to apply lots of  shimmer to your makeup and glitter to your nails. I love the darker shades this time of year and adding a glitter top coat makes everything that little bit more festive. This nail look is what I have been wearing on my nails for the past month, it’s a gorgeous duo and I will probably keep reapplying it until the New Year.

I then apply a generous amount of the Essie glitter top coat in Summit of Style. The gold really compliments the berry red shade and I just think it looks so festive! The gloss from the glitter polish makes the matte polish a deeper colour than what it appears in the bottle.

These matte polishes are so easy to apply, the application is always really even and not gloopy or streaky at all which is great. I think this shade would look just as pretty with a silver glitter polish as well, I just have a thing for red and gold at Christmas time.

Which nail polish shades will you be wearing this Christmas?
