It’s day 10 of countdown to Christmas! Unfortunately I missed yesterday’s post but I will be showing you more than one item today to make up for it 😉
First of all, I will be showing you one of my favorite autumn/winter shades by OPI. It reminds me of autumn colours but it is also perfect for Christmas and looks great with a gold glitter gradient. The polish that I am talking about is Bogota Blackberry by OPI.
I absolutely love this shade! It’s a very deep red colour with a slight shimmer which makes it look like a metallic polish. As I said it’s great for both Christmas and Autumn due to its deep colour. It could also be used as an accent nail combined with other christmassy colours.
I use this colour for a lot of designs. You can also use it to create little metallic santa hats like I did in my previous Santa Hat post.
I am a fan of OPI anyway, but this polish is still special. It’s opaque in two very thin coats and is easy to apply. I am able to apply it evenly and streak free!
And for the second half of my post… More Snowflakes! As you can probably tell, I’m in love with this design. I recently created these snowflakes on somebody with very short nails and as you can see, they still look great! On the middle finger, I created a Christmas tree. I used some striping tape to ensure that the edges were neat. I was very lucky with my striping tape deal as I found 6 wheels of tape for just 99p in Newlook! A random place to find it but it still works and at a bargain price! In case you don’t know what striping tape is, it’s basically a very thin wheel of metallic tape that can either be applied and left on the nail or, you can use it as a guide to create straight lines. I will be showing you more designs with striping tape soon!
After creating the green triangle with my No7 polish, I added some micro-beads as baubles and a little star stud for top of the tree.
That’s it for today’s double post. New post tomorrow… 🙂
