Midweek Manicure // Snowflake Print Christmas Jumper Nails

I blimmin love a Christmas jumper! Last Friday was Christmas Jumper Day in the UK, where everyone was encouraged to wear their favourite festive knit and contribute £2 to Save the Children. My office took part this year huzzah and of course I had to take things one step further by joining in with a cracking snowflake Christmas jumper print manicure too didn’t I?!

I bought these nail decals from eBay and they were super cheap at only £1.69. They’re not the best quality decals I’ve ever used however, and I found they didn’t stick to the nail too well so slipped off a few times during application. As you can see they also ripped a bit when I popped the top coat on to seal them in place. This time it looks like I got what I paid for! Oh well, they still look quite pretty!

I decided to layer them over one of my favourite festive polishes – Scarlet Sparkle by Models Own (which I featured in my Festive Favourite Nail Polishes the other week). This is such a gorgeous red with a good smattering of ruby glitter. Just perfect for the Christmas season!

Despite the imperfections from applying, I love the finished look of this mani – the white fairisle print wraps really stand out against the bright glittery red and it’s such a simple way to get in the festive spirit this Christmas.

    Although the decals didn't stick that well, your nails still look gorgeous! Red, snowflakes and glitter! It couldn't be more Christmassy! :)Olivia xBeauty from the FjordMAC Gift Card Giveaway
