Beauty - Mani of the Week

Ah here is another quick mani of the week for you. I wanted something a little festive! So Red and Green it was. Plus I found a tutorial for a cling film manicure to give a marbled effect. Although I think it looked more like a sand stone effect in the end! But I kinda like how it came out!
Green - Collection 2000, Hot Looks in Ninja from Superdrug
Red - Nails Inc in Tate from
 To get the effect all you need is your 2 colours and 10 cling film balls, just get a strip and scrunch it up. Then apply your base coat and let it dry fully. Then apply your top colour and press the cling film ball onto it, it needs to be firm but not too firm and do it in one movement, do not dab or move it around as it will just blur instead of making a splatter type pattern. Then top coat! I used a slightly glittery one from 17.

So what are your favourite polishes for this season? I am after one of the ones with big chunks of glitter in, but haven't managed to find one I like yet, any suggestions?
