Since its only 5 weeks until Christmas, its the perfect time to bring out the Christmas nail polish colours. To start off this Holiday Season early I think it calls for a festive red. I am not that much a red nail polish girl, but when it comes down to Christmas I love wearing them colours. I am kinda in between two, both are by Essence. The first one is Fame Fatal which is what I call a true true Christmas red and the other polish is called Me and My Lover. Me and My Lover is a raspberry red with some glitter. When applied it dries to a sand texture. When I got it first I didn't really like the texture of this polish as it was way out of my comfort zone. I am very plain when it comes to nail polishes as you can see. In the end I decided to go for Me and My Lover.
As my base I used Essence The gel nail polish which I really like to use at the moment, we did get off on a rocky note at the start. I really didn't like this base coat, as I found that it peeled very easy. The more I used it the more I like it.
As my top coat I used Essence The gel nail polish, again I love this top coat. I had the same problem with this top coat and the base I didn't like it at first, the more I used it the more I loved it.
P.S I have a review of these Base and Top Coats
