N.A.I.L - Let It Sparkle

Hi guys ! Happy Thursday . Anyone else super excited for tomorrow to be Christmas ? I know I am . This time of year is seriously my favourite time of year, just relaxing and spending time with family. 

As I mentioned, I'm a little bit behind with the N.A.I.L  ... But I was going through my nail art goodies and saw these cute snowflakes nail art stickers with some sparkle in them and knew instantly they were perfect for today's prompt .

I was lucky enough to get an awesome press pack from Essence last week - and one of the first polishes I wanted to try was The Essence No Make - Up Look polish in Powdery Rose. First I need to rave about this polish on it's own. I LOVE this polish. It does dry matte ... But boy oh boy this is a perfect no fuss nail polish. I wore this for 3 days before I did the nail art and had no chips. That's MAJOURLY impressive for a polish that I didn't use top coat on. 

So onto the nails - 
For this look I used :
Essence No Make-Up Look Powdery Rose
Essence Wild White Ways
Snowflake nail art stickers

I hope you enjoy your Christmas day tomorrow. Enjoy spending time with family / friends and I hope you have an amazing time.

Red and Green Christmas Mani

Hi guys ! Happy Thursday. I'm in such a holiday mood since being on leave I totally forgot to post ... Oops ! I still have some awesome posts lined up to share with you guys this year still. I'm a lot more active over on Instagram - so feel free to follow me there to see what I'm up too. 

Last year I bought a few awesome NailCandi nail charms, and I totally forgot about them . When I went through my nail art box the other day I discovered them and decided they are way to pretty to not use. I decided to use the Christmas stocking for this mani.  I also ordered some NailCandi Liquid Palisade and couldn't wait to start using it. ( I used it around the white nail to do the pattern with the green glitter polish - it made clean-up SUPER easy .. just peel off and no struggling to remove the odd glitter pieces )

So onto the nails -
For this mani I used :
China Glaze Merry Berry ( the red polish )
China Glaze Winter Holly ( The green glitter polish )
Essence Wild White Ways
NailCandi Liquid Palisade
Nail Candi Christmas Stocking Nail Charm

The candle incase anyone is wondering - Yankee Candle in Candy Cane Lane - One of the best holiday season candles. 

Are you on leave yet ? Any fun holiday plans ?

Essence Pink & Perfect

Hi guys ! Happy Tuesday ! And happy 1st of December . The Christmas season is really my favourite time of year, spending some extra time with family and friends, and rewinding after a crazy year.

A little while ago Essence released the most epic Merry Berry Limited Edition collection. As always with ANY Essence Limited Edition - the goodies are AMAZING ! I got myself the highlighter, hair fragrance , eyeshadow and this gorgeous polish from the range {as seen on my Instagram photo}. If there is ANYTHING in this collection that caught your eye - run and snag it up before it's all gone.  I fell in love the minute I saw a swatch of this online and knew this was a pinkish / purple I needed. 

First off - How GORGEOUS is the polish bottle. It looks so elegant and classy . The polish is SUPER pigmented , I could have easily gotten away with one coat , but as always used two. The polish applied like butter , and the colour for me screams Christmas ( I'm not a huge fan of red nail polish )

So onto the gorgeous colour of Essence Pink & Perfect ( Which in my honest opinion - is perfect )



What did you get from this collection ? What is your favourite colour nail polish for Christmas ?
