Just showing you guys how I decked out my nails for the holiday! I recently ordered some Essie nail polishes from Amazon since its super cheap (4 bottles for $15 plus $5 to ship!) and they all came this morning.
Essie’s “Walk Down the Aisle” is a suuuuper sheer ivory that I probably should have looked up swatches for before buying. In order to get it as opaque as I’d like, it took me an unfortunate 6 layers. Once on, though, it’s the perfect warm white! It’s still a little sheer, but its definitely do-able like this.
As for the gold confetti, I’m using American Apparel’s “Meteor Shower.” It is basically the table-top confetti that you use at parties. I really love how it looks, but the glitter took lots of manipulation. Regardless, it still makes for a beautiful eye-catching look that I can wear even beyond the holiday season :) the chunks are various sizes so you kinda have to balance out a nice small-to-large piece ratio.
What are your holiday nails like? Or am I the only fool who plans these things out? Haha.
Also, I just got an iPhone 4s! I’m completely hooked. I took this photo from it and I quite like this camera. I’m making this post from it, too. Never thought I’d be an Apple girl, but they got me!
