I'd asked for some MoYou goodies for Christmas, so I decided to use them for my first design for the month.
Ciaté Regatta was the perfect base for my MoYou Silver Dust stamping with SciFi Plate number 08. I was a little disappointed that I managed to smudge my stamping when I added my top coat, but I was still happy with my design overall.
I love darker colours in the colder months, and hadn't used OPI Black Cherry Chutney for a while so thought I'd do a simple manicure with a glitter accent nail. This colour is such a gorgeous deep purple red, and is perfect for a gothic look. You can't see how pretty In True Stefani Fashion is in this photo, but trust me when I tell you, all the different shapes and sizes of the glitter really catch the light.
Despite the previous manicure to this one, and loving darker colours for winter, I've got a rather important even coming up in a few weeks time so want to steer clear of the darker shades for a bit to avoid any staining. Bearing this in mind I decided to go for Heather from the Barry M Silk collection. It's such a pretty and delicate colour on its own with a beautiful shimmer, but I couldn't resit adding a coat of NYC Lights, Camera, Glitter. It has to be one of my all time favourite glitters and I have used it over many different base colours and haven't found a combination that I didn't like. My mum looked for a new bottle of this one, as she likes it too, but couldn't find it in Superdrug, so I headed to Amazon, and bought three bottles to be sure we didn't run out any time soon!
I still can't decide whether my final design for the month was a nail fail or not. I wanted to do a bit of a different kind of ombré across the nails rather than on all nails, so I chose Models Own Beth's Blue and Grape Juice. I think the colours complimented each other and gave the ombré look, but I'm just not sure it's what I had in mind. I added some little love hearts with Jacava Lavender Court to finish off the look.
My favourite this month has to be my sparkly Lights, Camera, Glitter, nails. I can't resit sparkle and shine, so it just ticked all the right boxes.
