We’ve got our playlist on and the cool, rainy weather has got us in the Christmas mood – time to start painting our nails in festive colours!
We’re usually into nail art but sometimes, a good ol’ classic red manicure with some added sparkle for the holiday season is just what you need (plus, we can’t imagine you’ll have the time with all that cooking/partying/wrapping of gifts). So here’s a simple, gorgeous manicure for some Christmas cheer!
Try out Butter London’s Come to Bed Red which is just the perfect red and we absolutely love the consistency – it paints on smoothly in a nice even layer and is not too thick or too thin. It dries up relatively quick, and is quite opaque with just one layer (but any manicure addict will know, two coats is the way to go). The fact that Butter London is a 3 Free nail lacquer means it’s free of Formaldehyde, Toulene, and DBP – for RM54 a pop, that’s not too bad at all.
For the pièce de résistance, add a dash of festive sparkle with Nails Inc’s Fibre Optic range in Belgravia Place which feature tiny red and holographic fibre optic particles, blended to create dramatic looks.
We’ve chosen to paint two coats over our feature nails, but you can definitely go all out and paint all your nails for painting the town red!
The best thing about the Fibre Optic range is that application over different shades of nail polish will create a wide range of looks and effects. Here, we tried mixing up the glitters, so we’ve painted two of our fingers with the blue Fibre Optic polish called Mayfair Mews for some contrast.
This is definitely a simple manicure that anyone can do, even with zero nail polish skills (just keep those Q-tips and nail polish remover close!), and both products are available at Sephora Malaysia – Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone
