Blogmas Day 10: Christmas Nails

On the tenth day of Blogmas I give you a mini nail polish haul! I went to Superdrug the other day with my friends. One of my friends was browsing the nail polish section and because I am impressionable as, I picked up a few Barry M bits even though I work in fast food service and can't have my nails done ever but they're so pretty that it doesn't matter!

From left to right: Gingerbread, Icicle, Crush, Vanilla and 3 in 1 Topcoat.

Firstly, the first two polishes were a Superdrug exclusive free gift if you spent a certain amount on Barry M products! I really wanted the silver glitter and the shimmery coppery shade looked kinda cool so I thought why not! I picked Crush because I wanted a matte burgundy for when I get more than 12 hours at a time to wear nail polish at Christmas and Vanilla just jumped out at me. It's so pretty and understated, I had heart eyes. And finally I picked up the 3 in 1 topcoat because I hoped it would do exactly what it said on the tin! Plus I'm lazy and the fact I wouldn't have to spend 0.2 seconds opening a second bottle of top coat made me happy.

I forgot to take a nice photo of my nails in proper lighting so here have a ropey iPhone photo of my slap dash last minute Christmas nails! As you can see I painted Crush on all my nails except the ring finger where I did two coats of Vanilla as a base and then painted Icicle overtop. I'm super happy with how they turned out but when I do my nails on Christmas Eve I think I'm just gonna do Vanilla with Icicle overtop on all my nails as while Crush is gorgeous, it just accentuates how short and stubby my nails are. 

Are you doing anything especially festive with your nails this year? Let me know in the comments!
