Christmas Eve already?

Last time I went into Big W they were having a sale on Rimmel (they seem to do this pretty often) so I stocked up. I also saw some awesome colours from Face of Australia and they were already pretty cheap (approx $6) so I thought what the hey!!!

I’m using one of the Face of Australia polishes for my Christmas mani. It’s a sweet vintage looking pastel mint green and needed three coats – the drying time was pretty good. The only downer (for some) was that it had a pretty strong smell – I don’t mind the smell of enamel so it didn’t really bother me. I grew up basically playing with paint in my dad’s shed – I loved using the airgun.

I used the holly stamp for the BM plates in Forest green and dotted the holly berries on. Then I added a little bling with glitter. Last Christmas (or maybe the one before) my mum gave me a set of Miki polishes that have a little glitter bottle attached on top. I hope I get some nail polish this year too!

Top and base coat: Rimmel - 740 Clear
Nail Colour: Face of Australia LUXE – Minty Mojito
Holly Leaves: Rimmel – 28 Forest
Holly Berries: Rimmel – 39 Ruby Me
Glitter – Miki nail polish

Christmas Mani

Island Mani

I'm back from my island holiday! Actually I was back two weeks ago - but I lost my camera. Anyhooo - found it yesterday - so I do have some shots to show you:

And my nails for the week were:

Rimmel 60 Seconds - 825 Sky High

I did this mani once we were on Long Island and it stayed on for a whole week. Infact when I got back to Townsville, even with the edge wear, they still got comments. I was actually shopping with the girl that I give my old nail polishes to and who is doing really well with her anti-nail biting campain. She was a little in awe when random people grabbed my hands to look at my nails. Patience my young padawan. Haha!

I did my nails for Christmas today - I'll take some photos tomorrow for you!

Tomorrow I'm off on my holidays to the Whitsundays - Long Island! Cocktails and beaches here I come - even though it will probably rain everyday.

So my mini dilemma is - what colour nail polishes should I pack?
