four weeks until christmas! we’re well and truly in the holiday spirit here at pb, and so for the next month i’ll be dedicating tuesday talons to fun and festive styles to celebrate the season.
we’ll ease our way into holiday hands with something not overly jolly. this subtle look is more a tribute to the ice cold of winter, and is one for those among us who aren’t into everything red and glittery (if that’s you, turn away over the next couple of weeks. and p.s… boo, grinch!)
the andrea fulerton kit comes with a little rubber picker upper stick, but after repeatedly dropping the crystals into the living room rug where they forever shall remain, i resorted to using my tweezers. use whichever works for you.
i also found it easier to allow my chrome polish to dry, and then brush a teeny amount of clear polish onto the back of each crystal before applying – this meant i could take my time in placing them, rather than rushing to apply them before the polish dried. it also meant there was less chance of smudging the chrome.
i dotted three crystals on each finger, and four on my thumb nail. after applying with the tweezers, gently push down with your finger to ensure they’re firmly in place.
next week, we’ll be wading further into jolly town with some sparkle. stay tuned!
