Thursday 8th December
Join us for a relaxed evening of express beauty treatments and Christmas shopping ideas, with Cafe of Curiosities, The Collective Boutique & bell&fox. Plenty of yummy treats and tipples to enjoy.
Since it’s Christmas, I simply had to indulge in festive nail art. There’s no other time of year when you can get away with so much glitter and novelty!
But instead of the usual Rudolph and Santa Clause, I steered away from those and the expected green and red colour-ways by opting for an on-trend pink gel mani with white and gold accent nails.
The middle finger sports a polka dot Christmas tree topped with a sparkling gem while the ring finer is painted with chunky gold glitter. If you opt for regular nail polish over gels, you can simply wipe clear your festive designs to reveal a simple, long-lasting gel mani beneath, once Christmas is over.
To recreate this look at home, paint nails in your chosen colour then use a bobby pin or nail art tool to dot on the Christmas tree into a v-shape. If you want to make it super slick, use washi tape to leave a v in which to paint inside then remove once dry.
Pink is a surprising shade that has been leading the fashion charts this season and it is set to stat for spring summer 2015. If you’re out and about in the sales, look out for sugary pinks, corals and fuchsia to take you into next season for less.
I love this TOPSHOP Lace Collar Top, £16 which looks great with skinny jeans and bejeweled pumps and I’ve already got my hands on this Matalan Pink Faux Fur Coat, £30 which has already gone into the sale, whoop!
Pop into Powder and have for a comforting cuppa and a spot of festive nail art while you’re out shopping. It’s the only way to get through all the mayhem!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
