Hi everyone. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas - I certainly did! Luckily my Dad was discharged from hospital on Christmas Eve, so he didn't need to spend a third Christmas Day in hospital, which was my most treasured Christmas present! I also got some goodies for Christmas, so no doubt I'll do some posts about my presents coming up soon, and got a few bargains in the sales yesterday.
Today I thought I'd show you my Christmas nails. I went for Ali's Big Break from the OPI Burlesque Collection in the end, although I was deliberating about which one to wear for ages. The shade I chose is a classic blue-toned red with a not too in-your-face shimmer to it. It's the least glittery of the four colours I have, but still is shimmery enough for a bit of festive cheer.
The pictures are after two days wear, with two coats on top of a base coat and a top coat to finish it off. It's pretty long lasting, although I did chip a nail on my other hand after a day. I usually like small bottles of polish, as you've more chance of acually using them up, and so the mini-teasers from this collection fit the bill nicely. However, I do find that the brush is very small and not that easy to work with, especially with the more glittery polishes.
Of all the NOTDs I've done, I think this is the first time I've done proper red nails. I love red nails, but I don't think they suit my skin tone at all, so I usually go for warmer burgundys if I'm going for something in the red spectrum. Still, I really like the colour and the sparkles lift it from a flat red colour.
Thanks for reading! xx
