Christmas Nails with OPI Glitzerland and Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday

I love changing my nails and makeup to suit the occassion so seeing as Christmas is only 2 days away I’ve come up with my perfect christmas nails. Most people would probably go for a red or a green but Christmas is linked with gold in my mind so that’s why my perfect Christmas nail had to start with 2 coats of OPI Glitzerland.

And to top it off nothing else would do but Deborah Lippmann’s Happy Birthday.

I love this combination and I love Happy Birthday! It’s such a festive nail polish regardless of what you’re celebrating. The combination of the gold and the multi coloured glitter is so reminiscent of wrapping paper and christmas decorations to me and it’s the kind of manicure that makes you smile when you look at your nails. These are what I would call fun and happy nails!

The only problem with these nails is that they are a major pain to take off as are most glitter polishes. I have to use an acetone remover and soak my nail in it and then try and rub the polish off. I spent a good hour and numerous cotton balls trying to get the polish off properly the other night but I think the pretty nails I had up until that point were worth the effort. Although I do feel like all that acetone is making my nails really weak and my nail beds are really sore now too so I think I’ll have to give the glitter polishes a break for a while… well after New Years that is because what kind of New Years nails don’t involve glitter? 😉
