Today I have number 2 in my Christmas Nail Idea's series, I had the idea for a Christmas Nail Idea's series because I always seem to paint my nails with the same sparkly polish every year and it made me wonder if anyone else got stuck in a nail polish rut. All the ideas in this series will be simple and easy to follow and re create should you wish. If you haven't seen part 1 in my series you can find it HERE.
In each post I show the things needed to create the look, the finished look and then a mini review on the products used and where to buy them. So here's number 2 an easy red sparkly nail.
Christmas Nail Ideas Number 2
L-R Orly Bonder Base Coat ~ Essie Leading Lady ~ Orly Glosser Top Coat
The Finished Look ~
How To Get The Look ~
First of all I applied a coat of my Orly Bonder base coat, then I applied 2 coats of the Essie Leading Lady nail polish, allowing each coat to dry in between. I finished the look off by applying a coat of my Orly Glosser top coat.
A Quick Review Of Products & Where To Buy ~
Orly Bonder Base Coat & Orly Glosser Top Coat ~ I reviewed both these products in my Christmas Nail Ideas number 1 post and don't want to repeat myself to the people following this series, so if you haven't yet read number 1 you can find it HERE where you will also find a review of the base and top coat.
Essie Leading Lady ~ I got this polish as part of a set of 3 last year, Leading Lady was part of Essie's Christmas 2012 collection, it is a beautiful polish and looks amazing, I am often asked if I am wearing gel nails when I wear this polish, it is so sparkly and with my Glosser top coat it looks amazing. I highly recommend it, especially at this time of year. It is easy to apply and with 2 coats it looks fabulous.
I hope you enjoyed part 2 of my Christmas Nail Ideas series, it was a super simple look and a look which is easy to re create too, without the need for a lot of products. I will be uploading some simple Christmas nail art tutorials on my You Tube Channel soon too so if that's something you're interested in, keep an eye out for those.
If you do re create this look or any of the looks in my Christmas Nail Idea's series please either tweet me a picture or tag me in your picture on Instagram, my links to twitter are HERE and my Instagram link is HERE, if you don't have twitter or instagram please feel free to email me your picture at email@example.com.
I'll see you soon with number 3 :)
Thank you for reading, much love as always,
