6 Harts Glacier & Orly Sweet Peacock Snowflakes

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely holiday time! I'm back to share some more festive nail art with you today. I wore this before Christmas but didn't find time to blog it for you guys until now so sorry about that. Hope you're not sick of festive manis, I have just a couple to share. It's not January yet right haha. 


This beautiful polish is 6 Harts Glacier from 2012. Oldie but goodie for sure. I love Courtney's polishes and shes one of the coolest women/friends/indie makers out there for sure! If you're not familiar with the brand please do check her out, you won't regret it! 

I started out with 2 thin coats of Glacier over a white creme base just for maximum opacity. The shimmer and flakes are a little less obvious like this perhaps but I really wanted a bright white base. The blue shimmer is quite hard to capture on camera, especially with the nail art but you'll have to take my word for it that it it stunning in real life! 


I then used Orly Sweet Peacock, a blue metallic foil, and Moyou Festive 02 plate to stamp the snowflakes. I love how this polish stamped. I'd not tried the technique with this one yet but the flake finish is super pretty! I finished with topcoat as always. 

Hope you like it and that you have a safe and fun New Year's Eve tonight if you're celebrating!

Snowflakes - Picture Polish Kryptonite & Essie No Place Like Chrome

Hi everyone! Today I have another festive nail art to show you. Like every year, I've done some snowflake designs. I think snowflakes are my favourite Winter/Christmas design for sure! 


I started out this one with 2 coats of Picture Polish Kryptonite, a green scattered holo. I'm not generally a huge fan of green but I do like this one. It does have a tendency to stain your skin a little when removing though so I suggest careful removal with acetone. 

I then added the snowflakes with Essie No Place Like Chrome and MoYou Festive 02 plate. I finished with topcoat as always. Hope you like them! Loving the festive manis right now!

Tartan Nails

Hi everyone! I recently felt the urge to try out some tartan nails. I'm not a huge fan of tartan in general but I like it on nails when I see it, especially with red. I saw this mani posted by Kiersten (@thebusynails) on Instagram and had to recreate it.

I started out with two coats of OPI Big Apple Red, pretty much my go to red creme. The formula and colour are perfection. It never disappoints me. 


I then used some acrylic paint and a fine detail brush to freehand the black stripes to make the tartan pattern. I then added stripes of Color Club Art Liner striper in You're Golden and finished with topcoat. 


I love the colour combination and the 'traditional' tartan look. I felt quite festive wearing this mani! What do you think of it?

Leaves - Multicoloured Stamping with Girly Bits Fall Cremes

Hi everyone! Today I have a mani to show you that I sort of forgot about! I wore this when I was craving some autumn nail art and then completely forgot about the photos and posting... 


I started out with 2 coats of OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh?, a beige creme. I then used my Lina Autumn 01 plate to stamp the leaves with Girly Bits Butternut Leave Me, It's Near Leaf All and Another Brick in the Fall. The Girly Bits fall cremes are so perfect for autumnal nail art and stamping! I finished with topcoat as always. 


What do you think of this mani? I love how the colours look together in the leaves!
