Tag Archives: Butter London Come To Bed Red

Christmas Nails!

Hello! 🙂

I realized that I haven’t done any actual Christmas nail art this year! I have done Snowflakes and some in Red and Gold but nothing really Christmasy!

So here are my Christmas nails!

This really took a long time to finish, but most of that was getting all the striping tape lined up.

For the stripy nails I started with Snow Me White, then the striping tape and a couple of coats of Come To Bed Red, it really was quite bumpy so I added two coats of top coat to even it out.

The tree is Emerald City, and some nail studs! The little reindeer is from plate HD05 and the snowflakes are from plate QA86. I did actually double stamp the snowflakes with Antiquated and Konad Black but the gold doesn’t really show up over the stripy background :/

On my ring and middle fingers I applied two coats of Sardonyx this polish is from the Models Own Velvet Goth collection so it dries matte, I un-matted it with a coat of Seche Vite.

For the candles on my ring finger I used Snow Me White, Antiquated and Black-ish, I painted them with a little paintbrush.

The Christmas Pud on my middle finger is a mixture of Hot For Chocolate, Its All San Andreas’s Fault and Black-ish. I used Its All San Andreas’s Fault for some added texture. For the cream I again used Snow Me White the Holly is Emerald City and Come To Bed Red! I didn’t add any more topcoat over my pudding, so it would keep it’s texture! 🙂

Red and Black and Pointy!

Hi 🙂

Just a quick post today! Some simple red and black nails created with the help of some striping tape!

I started off with Come To Bed Red from Butter London, this is one from my untried pile! It’s a really lovely shade and was really easy to apply, but it unfortunately took four coats to be opaque so definitely not a polish to go for if you are in a hurry!

Then (when it was dry) I used striping tape to mark out the triangle shapes and filled them in with Barry M Black, I removed the tape while the polish was still wet so it didn’t remove the polish along with it.

For some reason I added some striping tape to my ring finger… It seemed like a good idea at the time, now I really don’t like it :/ Unfortunately I realized after I had added the top coat!

my nails look so much longer!

This design really makes my nails look longer so I think I’ll try to ignore the offending bits of striping tape! 🙂
