I think now that its the first of the month I can now legitimately talk about Christmas! I’m going to start with red nails, which I think is the fastest and cheapest way to get festive without too much hassle. I love red nails all year round, but at Christmas it just makes me instantly happy. Here are my top pics for red nails for the Christmas season. I hope there is something there that you like.



At the top we have Barry M Ruby Slippers. This is an amazing red glitter nail paint that is a colour on its own. You can build it up over a couple of coats to a beautiful red sparkly polish, or if you prefer you can also wear it over another colour. I like this because you can wear it alone and it looks great. As with all glitter varnishes it’s a pain to take off, but it’s worth it!

Barry M Bright Red, is exactly what it says a bright true read, this does wear well but doesn’t last as long on my nails as some other brands, but still a good affordable red.The next two Essie shades might look the same but on the nails you can really see a difference. They are Lacquered Up and Russian Roulette. Russian Roulette is a true red and my favourite red as it has a ever so slight orange under tone. This shade would suit all skin tones and all occasions. At the bottom we have Rimmel’s Double Decker, and that’s exactly what it’s the colour of, a red bus or letter box. Again a classic red shade with more of a blue undertone..


I have already painted my nails in a bright red to get me in the Christmas Spirit. What are your favourite reds?
