A England Advent Calendar - Calendrier de l'Avent A England

Hi everyone! Today I'm really happy to be participating in this year's A England 'Advent calendar'! This was a lot of fun last year and I was glad to see it was organised again this year! You might have already seen some posts on blogs and social media each day featuring a different A England polish. If not, you can check them out by searching the following hashtags: #calendrieraventAEfans #AEnglandadventcalendar

Each participant's polish to feature was drawn at random according to which ones we own! The polish I am featuring is Polovetsian Dances, a stunning deep purple from the Russian Soul collection. The shade is described by the brand as a 'deep intense purple enhanced by the luscious prismatic hologram finish'.

I was really pleased to be assigned this polish because it is one of my favourites as I mentioned here in my swatch post!

For this mani, I applied 2 coats of Polovetsian Dances and topcoat. I decided to do only an accent nail with nail art so as to let the polish be the star. For the design, I was inspired by this IG video by Mejika9i_nails which is like Christmas ornaments. I used round silver glitters then white acrylic paint and a fine detail brush to create the design. I then used some gel topcoat on top of the glitters to create the 3D ornaments.  

I love the effect and I'll definitely be doing more designs like this! What do you think of it? Be sure to check out the other Advent calendar participations by searching the hashtags #calendrieraventAEFans #AEnglandadventcalendar #AEFans2016
