NOTD: Festive Pixi Sparkle

Although I don't celebrate Christmas, I thought I'd join the festive spirit by adding a little sparkle to my nails. Red is the perfect Christmas colour and although I tend to stay away from glitter polishes, I decided to bring a little 'bling' to my fingers with pretty polishes from Pixi's Holiday collection.

I used Ruby Glitz and Gold Glimmer from the Limited Edition trio pack, using Gold Glimmer as an accent colour to break up the red.

Ruby Glitz is a beautiful deep ruby red polish with bright red glitter particles while Gold Glimmer is a clear polish with lots and lots of large gold, silver and multicoloured glitters. The third polish in the trio is Diamond Glimmer, which is a sheer milky white base with white and silver glitter.

Two coats of Ruby Glitz gave gorgeous colour and sparkle to my nails. As Gold Glimmer has a clear base, it required several coats to give a solid glitter appearance on my nails. Of course, you can always use a coloured basecoat with such polishes, but I wanted to use the polish by itself to give the full effect of the glitter.

I have to admit, I love these colours and I can see myself using glitter polishes more in the future now! Removing glitter polishes is a chore and is the main reason I shy away from using them, but there is an easy way to remove them - look out for my post coming up which will show you how!

The pixi nail colour trio is available for £16 and is limited edition, so grab one quick!
