Today I have a subtle festive look to share with you. Festive because it contains red and white... which instantly makes me think of candy canes, and also because there is glitter!
These nails don't scream Christmas but definitely have a festive look to them.
When it comes to red glitter nail polishes there are generally two types - opaque red glitters that cover the whole nail and are a nightmare to remove (favourite - Barry M Red Glitter) or loose red glitter held in a red jelly base (favourite - Models Own Scarlet Sparkle). However NYC have brought out quite a rare glitter with Rose Muse Red Hot as it's sparse in a clear base making this ideal to apply over any base colour.
Here I have applied two coats of NYC Rock Muse Smoky Top Coat in Red Hot over Avon Nail Experts in French Manicure White as it's my favourite white nail polish. This combination just makes the red look even bolder and also festive.
Red Hot also contains large pieces of silver glitter which I'm not sure is needed but may look good if built up. Though with just two coats it really isn't that noticeable. This is one of the newer shades in the NYC Rock Muse range which includes - Black, Green Day and Gold Maiden all priced at £1.99 and often included in the 3 for £5 offer NYC often run in Superdrug.
I could also see this working over a green base for Christmas. Definitely recommend at only £1.99!
