I've never been one for doing much with my nails, I'm a bit too scruffy for that and it always just ends up going everywhere or getting chipped immediately! I'm definitely a sucker for a bit of glitter though so I couldn't resist trying out nails inc's 'Bling it on' at the House of Fraser press day... which I'll talk more about in a later post!
A lovely nail technician called Gemma first painted my nail a very christmassy ruby colour and then dipped it all over in glitter for a festive bauble effect. I've tried the glitter technique myself... but it didn't work quite as well! When I got home I finished off the other nails with 'Hampstead Heath', another nails inc colour... what do you think? Try to ignore my terrible nail painting skills haha!
I really liked the effect of the glitter and I think its something that wouldn't be as easily noticed if smudged (which is definitely useful to me!). I do think however that a topcoat would be useful as otherwise the glitter comes off quite quickly. The colour they used here was Ruby which is really striking and definitely festive but you can get it in loads and loads of different colours on their website.
I was also lucky enough to receive a little goody bag with a mini bottle of blue polish, a nail file and some vouchers... so I may be becoming a nail art convert after all!
