Nails of the Week #22: Christmas Day Edition

Sunday, December 28, 2014

Christmas Day is over, wrapping paper is in the recycling bin, I've eaten my own body weight in festive treats - make that twice my own body weight - and I've barely been out of my pyjamas for longer than a shower and a family meal. But what a wonderful day it was! 

I wanted something special on my nails for Christmas Day so you can imagine my glee when I found this duo in H&M a few weeks before.  

There are two polishes in this set, one is a lovely red and the other has different sized pieces of red foil and glitter in it. I painted my thumb and ring finger with the sparkle and the rest of the nails with the unnamed red and it made for such a pretty look. It's glam, Christmassy and has a sweet case of elegance to it. 

Considering the set only cost £2.99, the varnishes themselves are of great quality! The formula was thick enough to only need two coats and the sparkly foil layered up nicely. It also didn't chip until the latter part of the week, which is always a bonus in my eyes!

I loved wearing this combo and felt that the red glitter certainly added a festive flare to my nails. This duo set does come in other colours but, unfortunately, H&M do not sell them online. I would highly recommend checking them out in store though, as they're fab little varnishes!

What's on your nails this week? I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to New Year!
