Red vs. Gold ♥

Hello everyone!

How are you all today? ♥

I hope you've all had an amazing weekend with the boys and totally got the relaxation I needed after all the work past few weeks. I still need to do stuff for Christmas, like buy a couple of gifts and wrap them all and schedule blog posts and everything, but after this weekend I feel like I have the energy for it all. This year my Christmas will be a tad short as I only have three days off from work instead of the whole week, but somehow I'm pretty okay with that.

If you follow me on Instagram (@silvertigo), you know I have tried a bunch of holiday nails this month. Actually I'm painting a brand new ones whilst typing this post (meaning I paint my nails and carefully type while the polish dries), so stay tuned via IG if you wanna see those soon!

But today, you'll get to see more of my previous holiday nails, which I painted in the beginning of the month.

First up, red and gold nails with some festive stamping on them. I made these pretty glittery and all because I felt like that would be a pretty Christmassy thing to do.

The polishes I used were China Glaze Goldie But Goodie, China Glaze Twinkle Lights, Ciaté Mistress, and Ciaté Enchanted Rose. For stamping I used Konad stamping polish in white.

This was my try to get back with the stamping but I feel like it just pushed me away more. I guess I try to do this thing a little too quickly and I just can't seem to get the stamps straight anymore... So, sorry for the inconvenient looks of these, I promise I will try to get better at it towards spring and summer!

The other manicure is something I made after kinda sorta messing up the red one after a day or two. I removed the red polishes (I don't know if it's just me, but the Ciaté glitters totally make the nails weird and not that wearable, so I usually can't go for many days without redoing my mani.) and replaced them with these glitter gradients.

Polishes used here were China Glaze Kalahari Kiss, China Glaze Twinkle Lights and China Glaze Goldie But Goodie.

I personally liked this one quite a lot as it is pretty subtle but still super festive. I don't know if you guys have noticed but I seriously have a thing for glitter polish all year round. Beware, there'll be more where these came from!

Now, I'd like to hear from you:

What do you think about these nails? And, what kind of polishes you all like to wear during the holiday season? ♥

Now, this girl needs to go get her cup of tea before hitting the bed for some much needed sleep. Tomorrow, I need to go buy some last minute things before work, and on Tuesday morning we will head to Pori to spend the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with my fiance's parents and family, followed by a visit to our friends for a night. I will try and schedule a post or two for the days I can't really hit the laptop, as I still have a lot of things from this month that I really would love to share with you. ;)

Have a fabulous day, everyone! 

Blog ya later,

xoxo

Johanna

    1. Voi kiitos Petra! Kynsiä kyllä oppii laittamaan kun vaan näpräilee niiden parissa tarpeeksi, sen verran moni tekniikka on niin yksinkertaisesti mekaaninen :) Ensi vuoden puolella postailen varmasti vähän kynsikoulun hengessä muutamia postauksia, joten kannattaa tarkkailla niitä jos haluaa oppia kikkoja ;) Toivottavasti sinullakin oli mukava joulu! ♥

  4. I love how Christmassy both nails are. I'll definitely have to try the second one myself.

    1. Thank you honey! The second one is reasonably easy to do as well, so I'm sure you can totally recreate that yourself! ♥
