Hello lovelies,

How was your Christmas Day everyone? Well mine was horrible and lovely at the same time. The Christmas itself was lovely, my fiancé’s family great, we got nice presents and ate good food BUT late in the Christmas Eve I started to develop a cold...really bad cold. It kept me up all night and I felt really crappy and it just didn't get any better during the Christmas day. The fact that I didn't get more than half an hour of sleep didn't help either :( And to top it up - when I got home I broke off a corner of my nail on the car door! Lovely... I wonder what will happen today...

That's enough of me ranting, let's talk about today's nail post. Christmas is not completely over yet but New Years is just around the corner. So this is the first in a row of New Year's nail art posts and I hope you'll enjoy them!

This nail design is very simple to do! Start with painting your nails with dark sparkly blue nail polish. I have used one coat of Color Club Williamsburg over OPI Incognito In Sausalito.

When dry, use silver stamping or metallic polish and either freehand or stamp thin short and long lines coming from cuticles. I have used Bundle Monster BM-319 stamping plate and A England Excalibur.

 

The next steps are to add some silver dots using the same silver polish and dotting tool and seal the design with top coat.

 

 

It was inspired by those waterfall fireworks and I really like how it came out. What do you think?

Hello lovelies,

 

I know it's 24th today but for me Christmas Eve has always been the main day of Christmas as it's celebrated in Czech Republic that way. So that's why today is my main Christmas post and tomorrow I'm taking a break because I'll be celebrating the holidays the English way ;) I'm quite sad I won't have the proper Czech Christmas with all the traditions but at least I'll celebrate it twice - today and tomorrow :)

 

 

Of course I didn't forget to prepare some nails for today. It's a classic and Christmas appropriate red - Barielle Dinner At 8.

Merry Christmas!

Dinner At 8 is a beautiful shade with crelly (half jelly, half creme) formula. It is very jelly-ish therefore the pigmentation is lower. I've applied two thick coats but it was still not perfect and I could see my nail line. I've finished off with a coat of fast-drying topcoat.

 

 

Merry Christmas or any other holiday you celebrate everyone! I hope you'll have a happy day full of beautiful moments, your loved ones around and stocking full of nail polish :) Love, Lucie x
