NOTD

This is the latest festive design to grace my nails.




For the snow flake nails I used Models Own Buff Pink for the base colour.I painted the snow flakes on with a black nail art pen.Adding a touch of sparkle to them with OPI Save Me.I then applied clear gems to random points on the flakes.




For the Christmas Tree nail I used Models Own Naked Shimmer for the base colour, I then used a green nail art pen to draw out the tree design. Once that was dry I used a green glitter nail art pen to go over the shape. Adding a yellow gem for the star.

Finally I dotted some white on for snow.

Tis the season to be fabulous

There's nothing more that I enjoy during the cold dark winter months than to throw on a big wooly jumper and snuggle on the sofa.

Except for Christmas of course.I really wanted to get my glam on and buy myself a new dress. As a rule I generally don't buy dresses, but this year I wanted to be a bit more feminine than normal.

However that was easier said than done Im a 18/20 dress size and I must have tried on 9 dresses and a few other outfits out of desperation. All the dresses that I thought were lovely were either fitted in the wrong area making me look like a sack of spuds or so tight around my bust area it just looked ridiculous.Now I must not be the only big girl that likes to wear dresses but I'm wondering when designers are going to realise that not all designs translate up through the sizes.

Anyway enough of my moaning and time for me to talk about the important bit....I finally found a dress I was happy with which checked off everything I was looking for.





The dress I chose was from H & M and is a simple jersey dress with plunging back and for that touch of glamour, the bust area has irridesant stones all over it. I purchased this dress during H & M's 50% off your first item on their website. Original price was £14.99 so with the discount I paid £7.49 for this dress.

Also I wanted some new party shoes.I found these on eBay for a bargain.Yes they are second hand but in immaculate condition,Including postage I paid £4.70.




So for a little over a tenner I have the perfect outfit for my little Christmas celebrations.

The only downside to my decision to wear a dress is I am now doing yoga twice a day and tottering around in 4.5 inch heels whilst doing the housework to ensure the whole thing looks its best and I don't fall over on my butt.

Thank you for reading.

Another quick NOTD post for a festive nail design I have done tonight. I saw this design on Instagram and fell in love with it.Credited to Lynda Moorhead.




This is no way shape or form as fantastic as hers but I thought I would give it a go with a touch of my own flare.

I used Models Own Snow White as the back ground colour.Using a selection of tools and acrylic paints to apply the snow man face and snow flakes, finishing it off with a coat of silver glitter and top coat.
