THE TREATMENT: Most of us girls give our wardrobes a full update over the party period, so why not let our nails have the same treatment? With this thought in mind, I decided to embrace the spirit of Christmas with some festive nail art. Once my manicurist Lei had filed and buffed them it was time for her to get her creative juices flowing. Lei showed me all the designs I could choose from, and I decided on a candy cane, Santa’s face and suit, a snowman and a Christmas tree. Other possibilities included a reindeer, a present and sprigs of holly. Lei started on my pinkie finger before working her magic across my thumbnail. Watching her paint the intricate designs made the two hours it took to finish the merry manicure fly by. She only used polish on my nails and if you opt for gel it will take more time to apply, but the manicure is guaranteed to last longer.
THE RESULT: I am absolutely in love with my nails and can’t wait to show them off. They’re fun, sparkly and jolly – exactly what Christmas is all about!
