12 Days Of Christmas: All Wrapped Up

Hi there lovelies!

It's the 1st of December which means two things.. Firstly, i'm starting my own 12 Days of Christmas Advent Challenge! And secondly, i'm hosting my very first giveaway :D

I'll tell you more about the giveaway in a separate post, but let's crack on with today's manicure. These are the prompts for the 12 challenges, which i'll be posting every other day up until Christmas Eve. Anyone can join in, whether it's all 12 or just the odd one or two! 

So today's challenge is a look based on a wrapping paper design. I chose this gorgeous design by John Lewis that you can purchase here

I loved its simplicity and colours, so went for a nice subtle mani to match. 

To create this look i used:
Natural Collections - Unnamed Pink (2 coats)
W7 - Mirror Blue Mirror
W7 - Pink Suede
Claire's Accessories - Unnamed Pink
Born Pretty - Matte Top Coat
Barry M - White Nail Art Pen
Dotting tools

If i'm honest i'm not 100% happy with this manicure. I wish i'd left out the accent nails and just dotted them all the same. The matte effect did look beautiful though and it's definitely one of those mani's that just looks better in real life!

Stay tuned on the giveaway update,
Becky x
