I've been waiting for a chance to style this jeans jacket properly ever since I got it off eBay for way more than it is actually worth. The thing is, I saw a similar one at Urban Outfitters and fell in love with it three years back but they couldn't sell it to me because it was on display. (boo!) The jacket I eventually got then ended up at the back of my closet for about two years until I pulled it out for this outfit post. I just couldn't make it work before!
Also, let's take a second to appreciate how my regrowth totally looks brown in these pictures. I'm not sure how that happened, my hair looks much lighter in reality.

Christmas Manicure: Green and Gold

Christmas Manicure Primark Benecos Essie

If there's something I've always loved on other people but never got into myself it's complicated nailart. Sure, I love stickers and all that jazz but my nails are just way too tiny to pull off anything that goes beyond two different colours. Which is exactly why I went for something toned down yet festive for Christmas. Here is what I'm planning to wear on my nails!

Christmas Manicure Primark Benecos Pepper Green Essie

Base: Benecos Pepper Green
A gorgeous, muted petrol nail varnish I recently won in a giveaway held by the lovely Svetlana of LavenderStar. I love how this nail varnish is super versatile and not too bright so it'll go with loads of different outfits and accessories. The brush is quite small - which I love since it suits the size of my nails super well.

Accent: Primark Glitter Nail Varnish from 2011
I only really dug this one up for this manicure as I hardly ever used Primark's nail varnishes anymore. I remembered why quite promptly: It smells horrendously and takes ages to dry. I can't recommend this one at all but it'll do for Christmas.

Top Coat: Essie All in One Base + Top Coat + Strengthener
Something to hold everything in place. I think it works better as a base but it's decent either way.


What are you going to wear on your nails for Christmas? Are you going for the classic red or are you planning to change it up a little?

When we first shot this outfit it was so sunny that we actually had to do a double-take. Here's the second try, and if you ask me, I'd say that the gloomier weather suits my get-up much better than the sunshine we shot in earlier this week.
The leggings I'm wearing are one of my favourites from Black Milk Clothing. I snagged them up via Facebook after originally missing out on them. I wasn't even sure if I'd wear them once they came in the mail but I just had to have them for their name, "Rotten Elf". I'm absolutely obsessed with elves and it's getting a little out of hand recently, as you could see on my Instagram. Anyway, I finally went to see the last Hobbit film yesterday and I was blown away by it's awesomeness. If you haven't seen it yet, I'd highly urge you to do so!
