12 Nails of Christmas with Marisota.

I was recently contacted by Marisota to see if I'd be interested in participating in a '12 Nails of Christmas' campaign. They would send me a mystery box of nail goodies and I had to create a nail art look that I'd wear over the Christmas season and an accompanying outfit. A few days after I'd sent them my address a little pink box turned up at my door, full of exciting goodies. Inside were three *Essie varnishes in 'Licquorice', *'Big Spender' and the *'Let it Shine' top coat. To accessorise there were *Andrea Fullerton crystal gemstones and nail tattoos along with two *Barry M Nail Art Pens in White and Silver.
I'd initially really wanted to incorporate a matte effect combined with a glossy finish and perhaps a cut out V shape but I had no masking tape or matte top coat in sight. So I settled upon a french manicure styled nail with a bit of bling on the ring finger. For nail art novices like myself, it's simple enough to achieve this look yet still looks glamorous and polished. I painted my nails with 'Big Spender' and then carefully swiped 'Licquorice' along the tips finishing off with 'Let it Shine' for a glossy finish. Then I picked up a few of the gemstones and placed them along the contrasting line on my ring finger.
To pair with my nails I chose out a black sequin dress and studded Religion clutch combined with a Rimmel matte lip in '107'. As it draws closer to Christmas, the nights are getting colder so don't forget a jacket or a coat on nights out. I found this lovely fuchsia/red fitted coat to chuck on over the top to keep warm.
