I am not a huge fan of glitter and sparkle but even I can't help myself come Christmas & New Year's! I recently got this absolutely stunning gold flecked top coat from Lancôme and new that it will have to make an appearance soon.
White and gold is my favourite combination but the top coat looks equally as nice on deep burgundy or navy nail polish... or any other one for that matter. It's not really a glitter, it has these pieces of gold leaf suspended through it and on the nails looks like the prettiest golden snow.
As a base I have used one of my favourites, Barry M Coconut, which is a gorgeous off white. Together with the Lancôme Vernis in Love Golden Top Coat it makes the perfect Christmas nails without the need for any tricky nail art (believe me, I can barely paint my nails, never mind attach small bits of gold leaf to them!!) The top coat is limited edition but it's still available, at least in Brown Thomas.
If you are looking for something a bit special for your nails for the silly season I highly recommend checking out this top coat!
What's your favourite nail polish to crack out for Christmas & New Year's parties?
