I ordered them (along with some other little goodies!) on Monday and they came on Wednesday - amazing! And I love them.
I've used Rimmel's gorgeous black cherry nail polish as well.
Top Tip: Use a dampened wooden orange stick to pick your studs up and carefully place them on your nails. Press down lightly and then seal with a clear top coat. (I added a second clear top coat over the studs when the first had dried...just to be sure!)
Enjoy! But....try not to chip yours while wrapping up all your Christmas presents! I'm hoping mine will last until Christmas Eve x

We have some nails that are simple enough to wear everyday, but with a bit of sparkle to remind you that its Christmas! As if you could forget :)
I bought a selection of gems online and these green ones were included. I've used Barry M's hot pink here. Then when they were almost dry I arranged my gems on my ring finger nail.
A clear top coat gives this great shine and also is essential to make sure you don't loose any of your gems!
Hope you like these simple, sparkly nails - not as festive as our other nail art recently but bright and cheerful enough to get you noticed.
Have a great rest of the evening!

They say great minds think alike.... So when Alice told me yesterday to check out her newest post after seeing a picture of todays planned post I could only smile and give a little giggle at the fact we had come up with the same idea for the same week! So here are my Snowman nails...
For these I used slightly different colours, the base being Barry M Blue Moon (2 thick coats of this). Then for my lovely Snowman I used my Models Own nail art pens. The snow has also got little hints of Barry M silver foil effect in it!
I hope you're all starting to feel a bit more Christmassy! I'm hoping for snow so I can build my own Snowman... Just like last year (see picture below!).

Anyway, this is what today's nail art is inspired by! I've used my new Barry M Gelly polish in blueberry which is a gorgeous icey blue, perfect for winter/snowy designs. I tried to make the snowman look just like The Snowman but its not as good as I would like as my white nail pens are running low - hint hint Santa ;)
I hope these bring back happy childhood memories for you...'we're walking in the air.....'
And have a lovely day!!

But I'm definitely getting excited and feeling festive. And this is my first nail art Christmas post.
These are my take on a cheesy Christmas jumper with a fairisle print. I used Essie for the white and a nail art pen in red for the print detail. I used a polish from Barry M's glitter range - Rose Quartz Glitter. I love it! With this you could try one coat over another colour or, like I did, about 3 coats to get it super sparkly! It's so pretty, the photo doesn't really do it justice.
(The bauble is from my lovely tree!)
Have a great evening!
