Grüß Vom Krampus

Hey 🙂

Grüß Vom Krampus or Greetings from Krampus!

Here are my nails form the weekend.  As Krampusnacht is on the 5th of December I just had to wear some Krampus inspired nail art! 🙂

If you’re not familiar with the legend of the Krampus, he is the devilish companion of St. Nicholas.

St. Nicholas brings gifts and rewards to good children each year on December the 6th and leaves punishing the bad children to The Krampus! The wicked child would be beaten with a bundle of birch sticks, whipped with horsehair, then thrown into a wicker basket and taken down to Hell for a year.

If nothing else it’s definitely a terrifying way to get your kids to behave! Lol!

I spent ages trying to draw a tiny Krampus on my nail, but it really didn’t go well :/ I decided to see if I had any stamping plates with suitable images, and I did! 🙂

The goat skull is from Plate MM11 from Messy Mansion and the tree branches are from plate 14 from Moyou mother nature collection.

I used Lots of Red Polishes for the base of this Manicure

  • Barry M Red Glitter
  • Chanel Dragon
  • Chanel Rouge Noir
  • Color Club Rad-icle Gypsy
  • Illamasqua Scarab

I smooshed them all together on the back of a stamping plate then used a stamper to splat it onto my nails! It’s a really fun technique, but it is incredibly messy 🙂

for the stamping I used Hit The Bottle Black and Seche Vite to finish it all off

Chanel Swatches!

Hallo! 🙂

After my last post I realized that I haven’t shown my Chanel polishes nearly enough love lately, so here they are in all their glory! 😀

I have had these for quite a while so the bottles are looking a little on the “well loved” side… But if you are anything like me then that shouldn’t matter too much as it’s the scrummy insides that you want lol!

Chanel Black Satin

Black Satin

This is Black Satin, it’s probably the blackist black nail polish I own, this is two coats over base coat, but you could easily get away with one!

Chanel Black Satin 219

Black Satin

The formula is wonderful, creamy, self leveling and with the slightly longer bristles in the brush it really is one of the easiest black polishes to apply!

This intense red polish is called Dragon.

Chanel Dragon

Dragon

Dragon is a bright red cream, the formula is just as wonderful as Black Satin. This is also two coats, for some reason I completely forgot to wrap my tips Ooops!

Chanel Dragon 475

Dragon

This one is called Black Pearl.

Chanel Black Pearl

Black Pearl

It’s a shimmery dark silver grey, I find the formula for this polish to be a tiny bit thinner than the others, it wasn’t difficult to apply, just not as easy as the others.

I applied three coats, I really like the subtle iridescent shimmer in this polish, It makes the polish slightly different, and maybe a bit more special than all the other dark silver shimmers polishes out there!

Chanel Black Pearl 513

Black Pearl

This bright pink cream is called Splendeur.

Chanel Splendeur

Splendeur

This applied polish in one coat! the coverage is amazing! Splendeur is a fabulous pink, it’s almost a neon but still really glossy.

Chanel Splendeur 217

Splendeur

This is Paradoxical, it’s one of my favorites!

Chanel Paradoxical

Paradoxical

This is a lovely warm grey with a purple iridescent shimmer. this took two coats to be opaque and dries really quickly!

Chanel Paradoxical 509

Paradoxical

This is the classic Rouge Noir

Chanel Rouge Noir

Rouge Noir

Out of all of these polishes this was the most tricky to apply. The formula is slightly sheer/almost a jelly so this took three coats to be opaque, the colour is a lovely dark wine red and it’s incredibly glossy.

Chanel Rouge Noir 18

Rouge Noir

The last polish is Vendetta

Chanel Vendetta

Vendetta

This is a stunning dark purple, and the formula is amazing, it only took one coat and dried in about 60 seconds!

It was really difficult to capture the intense purple shimmer with my camera, it looks so much better in real life!

Chanel Vendetta 483

Vendetta

Vendetta, Paradoxical and Black Satin are definitely my favorites from my little collection of Chanel polishes!

I just have to keep telling myself to stay away from the Chanel counters when I’m out shopping just in case I “accidentally” buy all of them!

My red nails for Day 1

Red Butterflies nail Art

Red Butterflies

I started with a couple of coats of Ruby Stilletos from Sally Hansen. This is a really lovely polish, it’s a bright red with loads of red glitter! The butterflies are from Moyou stamping plate Pro Collection XL 05, using Rouge Noir from Chanel. Then finished it off with a coat of Color Club Topcoat.

The Right way round!
