After a hectic few weeks, I finally got the chance to paint my nails...it seems even something so simple has become a mammoth task these days! And my nails have gone from being really weak & splitting (during and after pregnancy) to super strong (about 6 months postpartum) to weak & brittle again! I don't know what's going on with me...whether it's breastfeeding, hormones or a combination of both. So as a result of that my nails are now short. I kept it simple this Christmas with classic red, in one of my all-time favourites for autumn/winter - Zoya's Asia but threw in a little sparkle with Barry M's Nail Effect Foil in Gold. The base coat I'm using is Sally Hanson Diamond Strength and topcoat is Barry M's Basecoat, Topcoat and Nail Hardener.
I can't believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve!! I'm finally completely set for Christmas as all of my wrapping paper, ribbon & other supplies arrived today so I am really looking forward to wrapping up a storm tomorrow night! (No, I'm not being sarcastic...I really love wrapping presents!) We also baked almond-filled Christmas cupcakes with white chocolate frosting...OMG!!!! Talk about decadent. I could eat 500 but unfortunately the recipe only bakes 24 ;) I will share the recipe on Sunday if you are interested!
