Merry Christmas Eve!!!! I have been waiting for this week to come so that I could really get in the Christmas spirit with my nail polish! When I think Christmas, I think about red, green, and gold. So, I decided to paint my nails red and gold for the weekend! For my red polish, I used Orly in Star Spangled. It is a red polish with red micro glitter sparkles! Super shimmery which I love! On my two accent nails, I used Julep in Margot as my base gold polish. It is a micro gold glitter polish. I provided a full review of this polish here. I then topped my Julep polish with Nails, Inc. in Snowglobe. This is a gold glitter polish suspended in clear polish. I did a full review of this polish as well. Click here to read more about it. The colors are so beautiful together and now my nails look so festive and I am fully ready to celebrate the holidays now! Check out my nails below!
What do your Christmas nails look like? I’d love to see pictures! Use the hashtag #jewellslipsandtips and tag me @jewellslipsandtips so I can see your Christmas nails on Instagram! You may see them reposted on my IG account!
Grosvenor Crescent is described as an aubergine (eggplant) color on the website. This is the best description for the color because it is a very deep purple. So deep that it almost looks black! The polish applies like a gel polish and dries with a wet look. What I like about the gel effect polish is that you do not have to cure it with a UV lamp the way you would with a regular gel polish.
Snowglobe was just released a couple of weeks ago. When I saw it was released, I went straight to Sephora’s website and purchased it! The website describes it as “a customizable, snow globe-like nail polish with a shimmering, gold glitter finish.” I was so excited when I got it because it really is like a snow globe! The glitter sits at the bottom until you shake it up. Depending on how hard you shake it will determine how much glitter is floating around in the bottle, therefore, determining how much is on the brush while applying the polish to your nails. How cool is that!?!
Below, I have provided a couple of pictures of the polishes on my nails. Unfortunately, I could not get a good picture to really show how beautiful the polishes are. But, they will do. I am still trying to determine whether or not I want to paint all of my nails with the Snowglobe polish or just leave it on my accent nails.
Should I cover all of my nails with the Snowglobe polish or just leave it on my accent nails? Let me know in the comments!
