The sparkly gold stars weren’t Christmassy enough! So I went full on festive with these red, green and white beauties.I have loads of polishes in my ‘green and blue’ drawer but not that many true bright greens: this is basically the only grass green polish I have. It’s a goodie, though! Essie ‘Pretty Edgy’. This is three coats but two would probably have been OK. I love how bright it is. The candy canes are all done with my nail art pens, they took a while (I really wanted them to be perfect) but I am super-happy with the result! A girl on the Tube today asked me if they were stickers, that’s how you know you’ve done good nails.
Also: I think these might have been subliminally inspired by the New Girl Christmas episode which I was watching this week, the one where they go to Candy Cane Lane and shout at all the householders to turn on their Christmas lights. CANDY CANE LANE? I thought so.
(I love New Girl. Maybe I’ll do New Girl nails some time! I don’t really know what that would look like though. Maybe Nick doing his tortoise face.)
