NOTD: Christmas Glitter Explosion

I could have also titled this entry "The More Glitz the Merrier". Here's whats on my nails:



This is Orly Nail Defense plus Instant Artificials plus Studio M Gift of Gold plus China Glaze Twinkle Lights plus a nameless red/green chunky glitter snowman plus Sally Hansen Insta Dri topcoat.



The China Glaze is a mini bottle (though not the smallest mini; I have a Ruby Pumps that's about half this size).



Twinkle Lights is a bit overwhelmed by the other two polishes; you can't really see it too well unless you get close, but I think it being there helps pull the look together. My bottle doesn't seem to be as opaque as some other bloggers; I used two coats and it didn't come close to covering the gold base, which was fine since I wanted the gold to show, but I don't ever see I'll want to wear Twinkle Lights alone at that rate. Maybe I just didn't shake the bottle up enough or something.





Merry Christmas to those of you celebrating! I'm planning to limit my time online during the holiday week so I can focus on spending time with family and friends, but I have scheduled some posts and will probably pop in now and again since I do love my internet.

  14. I love this combination! I actually wore this on Christmas day as an accent nail with the Milani Gems glitter instead.

  15. I should've gotten Party Hearty when I saw it months ago. I just wasn't in the Christmas spirit then, but it's really the perfect holiday polish. Your mani with it looks great, I think the Snowman and CG compliment each other!
