Marisota 12 Nails of Christmas







jumper: topshop
jeans: zara
boots: zara
handbag: céline
earrings: h&m
bracelet: marc by marc jacobs
watch: michael kors
ring: marc by marc jacobs
lips: topshop 'whimsical'
nails: essie 'big spender' and barry m white nail art pen*

So last week I was sent a lovely box of goodies from Marisota with the challenge of creating a Christmas nail look. I used to love all the glitz and glam on my nails but lately I think a more simplistic look is better. I still wanted to create something different to my usual look so I used Essie 'Big Spender' polish which is a lovely rich festive purple and coated this using the Essie Top Coat. I then used the Barry M white nail art pen to create the festive stripes going vertically and horizontally on the accent nail. I really like this simple look, I think it looks effective and is different from how I usually wear my nails. I have to say, the nail art pen was a little tricky so a bit more practice is needed for the future!

To go with my nails, I'm wearing my new Topshop fluffy leopard print jumper which is actually the comfiest jumper in the world! I love these hairy/ eyelash textures at the moment, they're so soft to wear and really keep me warm. I've paired it with my favourite Zara blue jeans which are the perfect jeans for this season. It took me so long to find the exact shade of blue I was looking for, not too light but still with a little fading down the leg. I also haven't taken these Zara cleated sole boots off since I bought them a few weeks ago, they are the ideal day boot for me with a slight heel. I love cleated sole shoes at the moment and it's an added bonus if they stop me from slipping over in the icy weather next week!
