Advent Calendar : Bauble Pattern

Good evening everybody ! I've got another Christmas design for you all that I'm really really pleased with ! It turned out a lot better than I expected it to, which is great ! I fancied something that would be relatively easy to remove when the time came, because I had a huge session earlier this afternoon when trying to take off my glitter from my last swatch, I stupidly forgot to put on the peel-off basecoat ! Damn ! Anyway, on to today's nails !

So these nails are inspired by baubles, after all, they all come in so many different colours and designs, I fancied something christmassy that wasn't completely obviously festive with the colours ! I think this design could actually be worn all year round, and did I mention I really like it ?

For this design, the different colours I used were Essie Splash of Grenadine, OPI Meep-Meep-Meep, and Barry M Gold Foil. I kept the detailing quite simple with the gold, and I'm glad I did because I was able to paint my right hand preactically just as well as my left hand, something I always love ! I contemplated doing more with the gold at both the tip and base of the nails, but decided against it because I didn't want it to look too over-the-top (and I'm tired) !

Like I already mentioned before, I really really like how this design turned out ! I think the colours go really well together, I think a darker more blue-toned purple would look really nice as a base colour as well (I love the combination of red and purple) !

So I'm off to get ready for bed now, I'm super-tired ! See you all soon everyone ! Night night !
