Now that Halloween and Bonfire Night have passed, I feel like I can truly get into the festive spirit. This year I'm pleased to report that I have almost finished with the Christmas shopping! I have 4 presents left to buy, I just need to order them.
Thankfully this means I can sit back, relax and enjoy the festivities without getting stressed out - and where better to start than my nails?
I'm not going to lie, Nail posts generally aren't my favourite thing. But I have had a lot of compliments on my nails in the past few days so I thought I'd make an exception this time.
The colours that I am wearing are both by Barry M.
- The red is colour is 'Red Wine' - In the bottle it's a lovely murky red brown colour, however it does come out a little brighter than the bottle. This is 2 coats, so perhaps 3 would darken it some more.
- The glitter is called 'Yellow Topaz Glitter' - very imaginative I know. It's a gorgeous chunky gold glitter mixed in with fine gold glitter. It looks amazing with just one coat over a polish, but to achieve a slightly more opaque look I used around 4 coats. I wanted to still see dashes of red peeking through so I left it there, but I dare say with another couple of coats it would be completely opaque.
Although my nails may look festive, I myself am not feeling so festive.
I have the worst ear/jaw ache that I've ever had in my life, and this is my third day of it - the amount of painkillers I have consumed (after which I am pleased to report that I am still alive) is frankly shocking. I think I deserve shares in Nurofen!
I hope you all had an amazing and safe Bonfire Night <3
