Crafting Christmas Nails
Oh hello hands! I have been looking at them a lot recently as I have been getting craft happy, making Christmas presents for friends and family. Unlike the commercialism that some sceptics complain at the mention of the festive period, I really enjoy planning gifts, making lists, popping along to the shops and crafting special gifts. I actually enjoy the giving of gifts rather than the receiving. Yes, some people might find that odd! However after a long time spent in Selfridges, London yesterday I felt it was time to give myself a Christmas D.I.Y.
I received these metallic silver Nail Rock stickers a while back from a launch party and had previously tried applying to my thumb nail and quickly gave up. These are a little tricky to fit to your nail to say the least! Just wait till you get to your dominant hand and you have to trim the excess while trying not to remove your fingers. Eeeek! So I came up with a compromise, silver tips. The base colour is a nude-ish, purply shade (Big Smoke by Topshop) that I topped with Matt Nail Top Coat from H&M (I am in love with this stuff). I really like the contrast between the matt subtle nails and the over the top shinyness of the ends. Now I am carefully going about my day while catching glints of silver now and again. It’s the small things!
