Dramatic Nails | Nail Art Favourites

Saturday, January 09, 2016 Alexa W 8 Comments


I'm sure I'm not the only one who went a bit 'Christmas-Winter-Sparkles' crazy during the end of last year, so now I've been trying out lots of combinations on my nails, from intricate nail art to textured polishes.

These are two of my most recent looks (which are always posted on instagram btw) and they really are quick and easy to do!


 Ciaté 'Jewel' Textured Nail Lacquer 

This was £3.99 from Tk Maxx so I really lucked out as they retail for double that price! They often have lots of their shades, I imagine ones they are discontinuing or that haven't sold on their website.


This is a beautiful holographic toned polish, as seen below, which in direct lighting changes colour. There are so many different coloured particles (like mini confetti) that you can't help staring at your nails. I'll be showing this more in my January Favourites!


L.A Colors 'Color Craze' Golden Treasure


This retails for just 99p in Beauty Base, and for the price they are surprisingly good. They don't chip (with a base and top coat) for at least two days. And they are quite sheer however sometimes it's better to have buildable polishes.


This is a gorgeous deep gold shade, with flecks of silver so it's very shimmery but the fine particles make it a more subtle shade. Because of the price, a few years ago I went a bit crazy and picked up ten of these so I use them quite often!

The jewels I applied on two nails, so as not to go overboard, and they are from an old DIY sticker set. Boots and Superdrug now stock affordable nail art stickers and jewels so you can definitely find similar ones if you want to try this out!


Which do you prefer?
