Another festive post for another Christmas : ) And traditionally, I chose a gold+red combination.
First I painted my nails with Avon Real Red, which I got from lovely Antallex. Real Red is a perfect name for the polish: it's pure red colour, without any additional tinges. Might be an ideal red for many women. But.. let the gods and Antallex forgive me, but it was the worst application of a red polish I've had since maaany months. The polish is opaque, but with a very very liquid formula: it tends to flood your cuticles, fingers,
laptop and cat. And the brush didn't work good for me either. Maybe it was because of a Xmas hustle and the fact that I didn't have much time to do my nails.. don't know : )
And then.. and then I decided to try a totally new technique for me - so called "saran wrap". Practically it's very simple: you have to apply 1 coat of some shimmery (gold, silver etc.) polish over already dry base colour, and then immediately to dab over your nail with a rolled ball of kitchen plastic wrap. You have to work with one nail at a time. And that's what you get:
For the golden effect I was using China Glaze Midnight Kiss - a golden foil polish.
Finally, to all my followers who celebrate Christmas today:
