The Nail File #30: Festive Five Nail Edit
Sunday, 15 December 2013
You all know how I'm a neutral nail lover at heart, I sport nude nails year round, I love orange toned reds in the Summer and reach for plums and burgundy shades in Autumn/Winter but Christmas is the one time when get to have a little more fun so today I bring you my Festive Five:
Okay perhaps not very festive but I love the darkness of Nails Inc. Chelsea when I want to vamp it up and to add a bit of drama. It looks almost black in some lights but has a crimson under tone to it.
Red nails = Christmas to me. Dior 999 Red Royalty is a gorgeous red creme. Neither too blue or orange based, a straight up classic red. A more cool toned option is Essie Twin Sweater Set. How cute is that name? A modern classic, this is more of a magenta/brown/red.
If Christmas isn't a time to bring out the shimmer and sparkle, then I don't know when is... Chanel Le Vernis 529 Graphite is a silvery-pewter with a smooth foil like finish.
Finally, if full on glitter is more your thing Butter London Westend Wonderland is a gorgeous classic gold glitter, that isn't a nightmare to remove.
