Festive Floral Nail Art

Does anyone else feel like December has completely flown by?! For once, I've actually been fairly organised and I finished up my Christmas shopping yesterday. Gotta love online shopping at times like these, it's almost unbearable to be real-world shopping on a weekend in the run up to Christmas. Sit me at my desk with a hot chocolate and a mince pie and I'm happy!



I had the strongest urge to paint some roses on my nails this week so I picked a festive colour scheme to go with it! The main colours here are Barry M White and Rimmel Heart on Fire.

The red glitter is two coats of Sally Hansen Cha-Ching over one coat of Heart on Fire.

I've written a tutorial for the freehanded roses so click here for that! I then dotted around them using Barry M Silver Foil and a dotting tool.

It's all topped off with a coat of Glisten and Glow HK Girl.




iVillage invited me to write a tutorial for their 30 Days of Christmas DIY series and I chose to do Christmas Puddings! Click here to see the full tutorial!
