Today I have number 8 in my Easy Christmas Nails series, I have to admit though I didn't actually come up with this design, I saw it on the Instagram account of China Glaze and thought it was different and also thought you might like it so I can't take the credit for the design of today's look.
As I have done throughout this series, I will include links for all the looks in this series at the end of this post.
Easy Christmas Nails Number 8
What I used ~
L-R Orly Bonder Base Coat, Essie Blanc, Barry M Black, OPI All Sparkly & Gold, Orly Glosser Top Coat
The Finished Look ~
How To Get The Look ~
First of all I applied a coat of my base coat, then 2 coats of the Essie Blanc polish allowing each coat to dry fully in-between coats. I then painted half the nail with All Sparkly And Gold again using 2 coats. Finally I used a dotting tool and the Barry M Black to place black dots down the centre of the nail and finished with my Orly glosser top coat.
Products & Where To Buy ~
Orly Bonder & Glosser - I reviewed both of these products in part one of this series so won't bore you again now, if you haven't been following the series and haven't read that review, you can find it Here.
Essie Blanc ~ I love Essie polishes, they are my most owned brand of nail polish, I have been using Essie for many years and was so pleased when they launched in Boots and Superdrug. I have always loved the polishes but I really like the brush on the line in Boots and Superdrug it is much wider and I feel it is easier to use. Blanc is a really handy polish to have as it can be used for many things, I use it for french manicures mainly but I have used it in quite a few nail art looks too, some of which are coming up in this series as numbers 9 and 10, I also used it in my snowman tutorial. It applies well and after 2 coats is lovely and opaque, I definitely recommend it.
Barry M Nail Paint In Black ~ Again I have already reviewed this polish in this series so I won't repeat myself, but if you haven't yet read the review, you can find it Here.
OPI All Sparkly & Gold ~ I reviewed this in number 6 of this series, you can find that review Here if you haven't already read it.
Dotting Tools ~ I buy my dotting tools from ebay.
I hope you enjoyed this look, it is different and looks lovely as an accent nail or on every nail.
