So this week is all about sparkle and couture. With a beauty Christmas ball happening on Thursday #SundayNails had to complement the gown, which is a gorgeous navy with gold, blue and white embellishments.
A spree in Selfridges on Friday resulted in a very special nail haul from Dior. This gorgeous manicure duo is exclusive to Selfridges, also available online.
I have never experimented with nail embellishments that much before so this was going to a bit more technical than the usual #SundayNails mani.
I started today’s look with NailsInc Kensington Caviar Basecoat, two coats of Diorific Vernis Or and generously sprinkled and patted with the Dior Crystal Pearls. I was quite shocked at how easy this look was to achieve and can highly recommend trying it. I felt that the look was a little much for all nails so opted for the accent ring finger. I’m really hoping that the crystals hold until Thursday for the ball.
The gold is a really beautiful shade and a results in lovely shimmer effect. It is however very similar to the OPI shade I posted a few weeks ago Up Close and Personal.
