Best Sparkling Nail Polishes for Christmas 2016

I don’t know what is going on with me but I am very into glitter and sequins lately. You may have seem my jumper if you follow me on Instagram.  And trust me, it is a big deal that I am wearing something like this, pretty much all my friends had to make jokes about it, even my parents were surprised when I saw them the other day.

“I have never seen you in sequins, like ever,” Mum was shocked.

“She is just old now,”  Dad replied. My Father just likes to tease me whenever he can.

But why all those talks? I just want to share the sparkling nail polishes which are new for this season which caught my eye. And these are not all the options, just the ones I like.

Do You Match Your Manicure and Pedicure?

I have nail polish on my toe nails almost all year round but summer is the time when everyone else can see it. And…comment on it. This is exactly what my friend, male-who-is-forty-years-old, did. I was actually shocked as he is the person who could not care less about my nail polish.

He: What’s with your nails?

Me: What is it?

He: Well, your manicure matches the dress (while it most certainly wasn’t). And what about the pedicure? Why is it red?

Me: Hmmm… Doesn’t red go with everything?

I wore Essie Over the Knee for my manicure and Illamasqua Alarm for my pedicure.

And do you match your madi and pedi? Do you go for one colour or just try to co-ordinate the shades? Or maybe you just could not care less and would easily wear acid green for your mani and matte pink for your pedi or whatever your choice would be?
