Bah! Humbug. Red And Black Almost Candy Cane Nails!

I’m not feeling very festive at the moment so I decided that trying a candy cane mani might be a good way to get into the Christmas spirit!

First I tried the traditional red and white candy cane but it looked dreadful :/ I think it’s to do with my skin tone or maybe the white polish had chosen gah!

The Red Glitter polish from Barry M is a fantastic varnish, but it’s a monster to remove. Even with the foil method! But not to be disheartened, even after chasing the glitter around my fingers for what seemed like hours. I started again.

This time with the Black Magic from Revlon as the base colour. To cover the textured-ness of the red glitter I used a thick coat of Seche Vite.

Bah! Humbug.

Bah! Humbug.

It’s really quite vampy but still a tiny bit festive! Or maybe a bit Dennis the Menace Lol!
