Candy Cane Nails

Festive nails are a must for me at Christmas time but this year I didn’t want the classics – red, gold, silver etc. So I opted for a candy cane pattern… in pink.
I used Barry M White and Baby Pink and I used a nail art brush set that quite a few bloggers have mentioned recently (there are loads of sellers with these on ebay I bought mine from here)
If your not into having pink girly nails, you can always use a red polish instead of pink or just add a green stripe for a more traditional look.
I used my bottle of Seche Vite for the first time when I did this & I was planning to do a review on it but honestly there isn’t very much to say – it’s AH-MAZ-ING :)
It helps my polish dry incredibly fast, it doesn’t smudge my polish and it stops my colour from chipping for days! I bought mine here for £6.75 including postage which is seriously a great deal as this is normally around £8-9.
