Christmas Mani - Getting into the spirit

Wow, I can't believe it's the 15th of December already!!! Well actually, I can't believe is it already DECEMBER!!! Can somebody please tell me where the year went? Since I'm still coming into terms with it being Christmas and all I have only just started trying to get into the 'spirit' of the season. Because we are currently renovating and our house is upside down we decided to skip getting a "real" tree which is a shame because I think having a tree is my favourite part of the season and we are making do with a small fake tree from IKEA. Pretty good for the price though..... It is smothered with tinsel and lights and navy blue and silver decorations. Since the tree went up yesterday I thought I would do a Christmas Mani. But I couldn't decide what nail polish to use, so I used them all :) Hahahaha that's evidence of my indecisiveness right there :)

So today I bring to you:

  • Butter London's 'Pillar Box Red' 
  • Revlon's 'Emerald'
  • Essence's Breaking Dawn Part Two ' A Piece of Forever' 
All are very Christmas-y polishes and one-coaters too!!! Yay :)

Pillar Box Red and Emerald are glossy creams and A Piece of Forever is a metallic (non-streaky) however because of the overcast skies and rain the photos don't show how awesome these polishes are although they have both featured on my blog because....AND I ran out of nail polish remover before I finished my clean-up so please accept my apologies. Not a great start to the day (did these straight away this morning) and I planned to do heaps of swatching today but now I'm not so sure with the weather and all. 

While typing this post I decided that the photos didn't really show how funky this multi-coloured mani looks in real life. In particular, the colours are wayyyy more vivid. But anyway, holding the camera under my chin I attempted a 'both hands' mani. Ummm.... please feel free to laugh :)
