My Winter Pajama Flannels Inspired My Manicure!

I know I can’t be the only one this has happened to. I picked a polish color, along with a glitter top coat and, it matched my jammies!!! Please tell me this has happened to you…

This is what I came up with using Cult Nails’ ‘Kiss My Rose Bud’ with Pure Ice’s ‘Santa Merry Me’.

‘Santa Merry Me’ is one of Pure Ice’s newest Winter glitters and it’s pretty! ‘Kiss My Rose Bud’ is a matte pink that set the perfect background for this pairing…

So, when I cozied up in my flannel jammie pants (and, a fuzzy top, of course) and did my nails…

I guess I was subliminally inspired to create this pink Wintertime manicure…

I have done a manicure, more than once, only to discover that it matches something I’m already wearing and I wasn’t even trying to do a match. Please tell me that you’ve done this too so I don’t feel totally weirded out!

Rite Aid Rhinestone Christmas Polishes

Don’t be afraid to use your Christmas/Winter Holiday nail polishes for real ornaments. They can be that cute! It’s a tie between the girly bottles and the actual polish which is more festive…

DSCF0043DSCF0051Gosh, if the brand is called ‘Ornaments’, I think anyone would be remiss if they called you on it!

I didn’t go into Rite Aid to look for new polish. But, can I make myself feel a bit better by saying I did limit myself to just three! These have no names…

DSCF0047but you’ll leave an impression with your festive nails if you decorate yourself with any of these three. There are two coats..

DSCF0041This one is a collection of all the glitter that falls off in the wake of a fast-moving elf…

DSCF0046I will move this one over to the Mardi Gras possibles if I don’t get to it this Christmas…

DSCF0048This pink glitter doesn’t have to hide out just for the Winter Holidays either. Two photos in different lighting but, still the same polish..

DSCF0050 DSCF0049I have more Christmas/Winter polishes than I can possibly wear during one season. That’s the truth! Next year, I am going to have a Christmas party at my house with a ‘Come Paint Your Nails For Your Holidays’ theme. I’ll provide food, drinks and polish!

It’s just too frightful for me to even think about counting how many Christmas Holiday polishes I have! What would you guess? I’m going to say about 125. Gulp! How about you?

Straight From Etsy, I Love Nail Polish Holiday Polishes

Can I give you a couple of reasons why I love I LOVE NAIL POLISH brand? First, the combinations of holos and glitters are like nothing I see anywhere else. Also, I can order smaller bottles, which are less expensive, allowing me to purchase a larger variety.

Let me show you a couple of my recent purchases that will insure I’m ready for the holidays…

I haven’t had any polishes that made me want to stare at them in quite some time. It’s a whole paragraph just to tell you that there is square and different size of hex glitter in this. The green, copper and orange colors are in the right ratio for Fall.

Square, shard, dot and hex glitters abound. Gold, red and green colors will deck your nails for Yule. (Shhh…beat Santa to the punch. Order the full size of this one at ILNP.com because it’s on clearance!)

No need to pontificate, see for yourself!…

swatches nails and makeup 035 swatches nails and makeup 036I do need some help, however. What color of polish would you recommend as a base color for these Holiday smack-you-in-the-face glitters? Do you have your Holiday nail manicures selected?

 

Finger Paints: Midnight Sleigh Ride

I hope you don’t have a blue Christmas. But, you might enjoy blue Christmas polish! I like this one very much…

notd secret santa 001 notd secret santa 002Finger Paints ‘Midnight Sleigh Ride’ is a beauty. It’s a medium shade of blue with blue and silver micro-glitter…

notd secret santa 008The shimmer isn’t too obvious from a natural distance, however. But, that shade of blue is pretty. I remember my Grandparents’ Christmas tree that was one of those spindly silver ones. All the ornaments were thread-covered blue Christmas balls. It was pretty back then. Now, I guess it would be very ‘retro’.

Two coats of ‘Midnight Sleigh Ride’ turned out just right…

notd secret santa 003 notd secret santa 005The shine on this polish is incredible! I don’t have a top coat on it at all. The polish itself is so smooth and applied evenly. Pretty Christmas polishes like Finger Paints don’t give me a blue Christmas.

Do you like blue Christmas polish?
