And we start with a too-cute-to-be-true snowman made by Camille from pshiiit.com. And boy oh boy, this is so wintry and easy to do. Begin by applying a base! For the snowman, make a semi circle and then a circle for the head. Next, with a dotting tool, it’s time for the eyes and buttons to appear! Then, draw on a triangle-shaped nose in orange. Don’t forget about the top hat and scarf! And on the other nails, draw some snowflakes for the whole winter landscape!

Okay, there’s no Christmas without Santa’s reindeers! Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, Rudolf… Did we forget anyone? This season, choose your favourite reindeer and apply it on your nails! Sammy from thenailasaurus.com manages to create some uber-cute reindeer for the holidays ahead! She used white as a base color, outlined the main shape of the reindeer with Barry M Mushroom and then used black and white acrylic paint for the details.

Start by applying a base coat and only after it’s completely dry you can make the reindeer. Then, use a small paint brush or a tooth pick in order to make the antlers. Next, create two big white dots for eyes and with a dotting tool make two slightly smaller black dots on top of the white ones. Remember to make Rudolph’s big nose red, while for the rest of the nails make the reindeer’s nose black. Finally, to finish the look, apply a clear fast drying nail polish. These are pretty hypnotic, aren’t they? We’re completely hooked!

Now, let’s see! We already have a snowman and snowflakes and Santa’s cute reindeer. Well, we have this strange feeling that something’s missing! Oh, and this is definitely the Christmas tree! So, we came across Chelsea’s blog, the-nail-network.com, and discovered an array of gorgeous nail art ideas that guarantee to be the center of attention at all your holiday parties. For the Christmas tree, Chelsea started out with three coats of glittery polish on all nails except her ring nail, on which she used two coats of red nail polish. Once it was completely dry, she used strips of tapes to form a tree shape and painted over it green glittery polish and then topped the tree off with a single star!

So, are you fashionistas ready to get all dolled up for the festive season? If you are, then you can also try Camille’s Christmas tree made using two regular tape strips on your nail, forming a chevron shape, and small strips randomly across the chevron to form the garland. And keep in mind to try removing the tape strips individually for a cleaner result!

The Glamorous

A sultry makeup look that radiates is always a great idea as far as Christmas make-up goes and fortunately there’s an array of radiant, sheer and metallic finish makeup products that have an almost tropical allure and that you can turn to regardless of your budget.
For this type of look make sure you use an illuminating foundation and a highlighter which you’ll apply from the temples down towards the apple of the cheeks to add that freshness and glow that makes heads turn. For the eyes use dark tones as well as gold, copper metallic pigments and finish the look with a blush and a metallic lipstick that compliments your complexion and eyeshadow color choice.

The Drama Queen

Do you love vivacious pigments? But most importantly are you brave enough to play with vivacious makeup pigments? If yes, bring out your inner drama queen and put the most seductive and intense pigments to work. Purple/magenta, emerald green as well as black are the most popular eyeshadow shades to use when trying to add depth and drama to your eyes, so get creative and sculpt your peepers to perfection. A bit of eyeliner smudged across the lash line, lashings of mascara (if you’ve got a hot pair of dramatic falsies use it!) and either a fierce red/berry tone lipstick or a nude lip color will help complete your look and give you a cinematic allure that will make traffic stop!

The Demure

If you’re thinking of playing it safe or you just want your Christmas makeup to look natural and romantic, soft pastel pigments are the answer to your needs! Keep the eyes defined with a shimmery sheer pink/beige (you can also go with bare eyelids), light lashings of mascara, add a natural flush to your cheeks with a soft pink/salmon/peach blush and plump up the lips with a sheer lip gloss or lipstick to complete your enviable demure look.
Now all that’s left is to have a Merry Christmas!

Gucci Pre-Fall 2013 Collection

The Gucci pre-fall 2013 collection brings a fabulous ‘femme fatale’ allure which radiates boldness and sophistication. Get a glimpse of the hottest new designs.

A new era seems to be the main focus for the pre-fall 2013 fashion. If the ’70s have been the main source of inspiration for some of the most popular creations of the past season, it seems that now the ’50s are taking over and Gucci is one label that believes reinterpretations from the glamorous era should set the tone for the new season. Femininity is once again the attribute that is highlighted yet not in the delicate, romantic allure we generally see it represented.

For Frida Giannini adding drama and a sense of power that is completely opposite to the ‘damsel in distress’ mantra was the important aspect that defined the collection: “This is a contemporary femme fatale who relishes her own dark mood. Armed with an invulnerable aesthetic, she has an elusive sensuality — like the protagonist in a game of pursuit” the designer told WWD.com. With these thoughts in mind, the complete focus on extremely well defined proportions and rich tones immediately create the sense of refinement and intentional contrast that instantly demand attention.

Creating the ‘femme fatale’ vibe relies on a series of well defined touches. Animal prints are, hands down, the best choice for highlighting boldness from the brand’s perspective and as such they are an important part of the new collection. The geometric vibe that proves so incredibly important as far as the 2013 fashion trends are concerned is beautifully reflected through classy pieces that form fabulous ensembles where proportions are beautifully defined.

High waist skirts, gorgeous long gloves, classy and classical dresses, simple sweaters paired up with high impact accessories are some of the must haves of the new collection. The new designs might seem like a far-cry from the relaxed allure of the resort 2013 creations, yet this is precisely the impact that makes loyal customers and hardcore fashionistas alike maintain interest and remember the new creations of the luxury label.
