A Christmas nail look..

..that I've been loving! And now that it's officially December I can :)
When I first got this Orly polish* in Angel Rain I wasn't so sure if I'd like the colour. It's a bit 'shimmery'  for me. But after wearing it on my nails for the past week I've been loving it- especially the lovely two tone glimmer it gives off. Pairing it with my new favourite top coat (I don't know why I didn't buy this sooner!!) Seche Vite and it's a winner!
And below you can see my rather botched attempt at drawing a snow flake with my new Barry M nail art pen in white. I think it's needs a bit of practice, but the white against the blue looks so pretty and wintery.
Have any of you tried nail art? What is the easiest thing for a beginner/clumsy person to do!? Any help would be appreciated as I'm stuck on ideas after a snowflake!

  6. That Orly polish is so pretty! I usually stay away from blues as I'm afraid they'll make me look like a corpse but you might just have squashed my fears :)
