Okay I am back with a real Christmas mani. This is a very easy look using two awesome Claire's foil finish polish's. Red Slippers and Emerald city are very thick and dense polish's, they dry waaaaaaay to fast ( even for me ). But they are beautiful shades packed with foil-ey goodness.
I began with 2 coats of Red Slippers and added a coat on Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat. I wore this pretty polish alone for the afternoon and got bored so I went with the super-easy diagonal mani instead. I applied straight french tip guides on the diagonal and added 2 thin coats of Claire's Emerald City, I peeled off the french tip guides and traced the diagonal line with the silver glitter striping polish. I added 2 coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat when it was all dry.
These 3 colours together are lovely Christmas shades. This is a super-easy look and looks great in any colour combination for any season. When I finished painting my nails the sun had gone down, so hopefully I will be able to get outside and snap some proper pic's tomorrow.
ugh! look at all that snow!
Claire's Red Slippers is a fabulous foil.

I applied Nailene Straight French Tip Guides and added 2 thin coats of Claire's Emerald City. When it was dry I removed the french Tip Guides and traced the diagonal line with the Art Deco Silver Glitter stripe polish...... when that was all dry I applied 2 thin coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat.

all of the foils from Claire's store's are great! They are richly pigmented, shimmery and dry very fast. I think they came out in fall-time of 2009. I haven't spotted any foil polish from Claire's in the last year or so and I am glad I spotted these when I did.
