Festive nails | Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Sparking Ruby and festive nail art 

Red glitter nail varnish is my go to Christmas nail look because who doesn’t love a bit of glitter?! That together with some silver snow flakes completes the festive look.

I achieved this with Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Sparkling Ruby and some snowflake nail art stickers and it’s really simple to do!


This Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Sparkling Ruby has revolutionised my glitter varnish! Its SO easy to apply and fairly fast drying.

It has a gorgeous shiny finish without the grittiness of glitter but still looks super glittery!

And the mega bonus – it wipes off with polish remover in seconds! No more soaking or pulling for ages like you get with usual glitter!

It’s a Christmas miracle varnish!  Get it for £3.99 from Boots or Superdrug.

And if, like me, you’re no good with the nail art pen, you can also add some festive nail stickers for the ultimate festive look!

These are only 99p on eBay and you can get so many different designs. They’re so easy to apply – remove it off the panel with tweezers and place it on your nail and simply apply one cot of a clear top coat to seal it in place. It comes off fine with nail varnish remover only requiring a little extra rubbing.


You can add it to the ring finger on each hand or transfer a different design to each finger!

There you have it – simple christmas nails that are fast and purse friendly!

What more do you need?! Great for the christmas party or christmas day especially if you’re in a rush!

    This looks so cool! I tend to stay away from glittery nail polishes because of the nightmare of removing them..
