Holiday Special Layering Job

This question comes up every year — what to wear for a Christmas Eve mani?! Red, of course. In a variation of sort if must. I even went so far this year that I swatched all my reds on a nail wheel trying to decide… (Red is a colour I wear rarely, and could have sworn I only owned a couple… colour me surprised when I discovered I had 21 of the suckers…)

In the end, I decided to forego tradition and go for something completely different!

Pale, glittery, fairy-tale like.🙂 I mean, if I can’t have a white Christmas, I can at least have something reminiscent on my nails.

This mani reminded me of a sunset on a white winter night.

I started with two coats of SpaRitual It’s Raining Men — a sheer blue-to-pink duochrome with a golden shimmer flash. I can’t even tell you how much I love this polish.

Sponged the tips in a gradient with China Glaze White Cap — golden glassflecks in a milky base — to add more goldenness to the tips. The effect is great in lighting conditions where It’s Raining Men turns pink.🙂

On top, I used China Glaze Snowglobe — pastel multicoloured glitter is a sheer base. Seeing it everywhere in stores again, reminded me to bust out my bottle and how much I love this polish as well.😀

I took a ton of pictures of this mani, and managed to capture the blue and golden of the base, but unfortunately not the pink. Trust me, it was there though.

♥♥♥

So, what are you wearing this Christmas?🙂

MLV.

  1. This is divine, such a unique combo. I love these pale combos that are surfacing with Snow Globe. A glitter gradient has to be the way to go for tomorrow.
