Beauty Blog Advent Calendar 2012: 10/12/12


Last year, Sparklecrack Central came up with the idea of a Beauty Blog Advent Calendar where we featured little bits of beauty blogging things we love. This year, she gave us a bit more notice and we are joined by The Unknown Beauty Blog!

Beauty Blog Advent Calendar - Day 10

Today I have more party nails for you!! This time of year is perfect for the richer shades and topping it off with some flakie glitter just makes it even better.


I'm wearing two Essie shades on my nails. The base colour is a gorgeous shimmering deep blue-green called Dive Bar that I bought from Boots when I discovered the stand. The top flakie coat was sent over by Sparklecrack and is called Shine Of The Times. I think flakie top coats are my favourite of the "effect" polishes that we have so many of these days. It changes colour in the light and is mesmerising.

Maybe this would be a good New Year manicure!

    1. I found that a good decorative way to keep my thin nails from peeling, was to wear a flakie top-coat as my only nail polish. They're durable as heck, and because they're essentially clear, if the polish does chip a tiny bit after three days it's not noticeable.

  2. I love Dive Bar. When Essie arrived in Boots it was the first colour I bought.
    As it happens, I'm also wearing a similar top coat on my nails right now: the (discontinued?) Gosh version 'Rainbow'.

    1. I have that Gosh stashed away as well :)

  3. This one is a stunner and must have! I want to see it on dark green and red too.
