No7 Advent Calendar – Day 22

22

christmas

Day 22 of the No7 advent calendar

No7 Gel – Look Shine

‘Our patented technology makes the polish tough and flexible to help prevent chipping and improve ease of application to help achieve a streak free finish. Complete coverage in just one stroke, with outstanding and durable gel look shine. Helps to smooth and plump nails so natural ridges can’t be seen, for best results use in combination with the top coat. Rich Colour, pay off in one coat. Plumps and volumises in 2 coats.’

Today in the No7 Advent Calendar i got this ‘Gel – Look Shine’ nail polish. It’s such a lovely colour and it’s a Gel nail varnish which i love as they turn out so shiny and pigmented. It’s in the colour ‘Deep Wine’ which is this lovely deep red colour which is perfect for the holiday season. With this nail varnish you only need to put one coat on as its so pigmented and because it’s a gel look you don’t really need to put a top coat on as it drys shiny. I’m happy with todays gift as the colour is lovely and it’s a good size so it will last a while, its a bit expensive at £7 but you are paying for a well pigmented gel nail varnish. The other No7 nail varnish i got a few days a go will look amazing on top of this, or even just on one nail. These two an varnish’s will look so christmasy together so I’m happy i got these two colours.

On the boot’s site it tells you how to use this nail varnish.

How to Use

1- Apply No7 Stay Perfect Base coat

2- Use a small amount of Polish and paint down the centre of the nail. You may need to paint down the sides of the nail too. The nail should be completely covered in 3 strokes.

3- Finish with Gel Shine Top Coat applied all over the nail to help the nail Polish last longer

4- Ta-dah!

You can pick this up from boots for £7.00 here.

Whats your favourite shade to wear at Christmas?

Quick And Easy – Cross Stitch Christmas Tag’s

cross stitch

Hello Everyone!
Since it’s nearly christmas I’ve decided to do a quick and easy DIY. I got a little kit the other day to make these cute and different christmas tags. If you like cross stitching this will be easy if you don’t follow the simple steps to help create these christmas tags.

lhh

If you don’t have the little kit all you need are:

Some Aida
Red Thread
Some Cardboard Tags (you can either make these or buy them cheap and just stick the cross stitch over them)
Templetes
Needle
scissors
Glue/ Sticky Tape

hlhlhlh

Step 1:

You want to choose your template you want to put on the gift tag.

Step 2:

Cut out the right size Aida for the gift tag

Step 3:

i started with the little V like shapes at the bottom. You want to count across to see if you have enough room and where to start.

Here’s the easiest diagram i could find to show you what you need to do. First you need to thread your red thread into the needle, make sure you tie a knot at the end. The tread will come in around 6 pieces, you need to spilt them into two and then thread the 2 pieces into the needle. Then on the aida you will see little squares, from the back you need to take the needle and go through A ( The top left side of the square) Then you take it through b (Bottom Right corner) Then from the back of the aida you need to take the needle through C (Bottom Left corner) then thread the needle into the D (Top Right corner)

I hope this helps, once you get the rhythm of it will be easier. If there are more than one crosses on the pattern you need to just do A – B until the line is done and then go back on them. ( I hope this is making sense)

hioh

(I’m sorry the pictures are a little blurry it was took at night without any good light)

Once you get the hang of it, it should start coming out like this on your aida, i would recommend starting off with the easiest one first to help you get the hang of cross stitching.

Once you’ve done your pattern you need to tie the thread up at the back and cut it so it can’t unravel.

Turn your cross stitch over and tape the loose thread up on the back. Then turn it back around and lay it on the gift tag, you then want to either glue it or stick it with sticky tape to hold the cross stitch in place. Then take any thread of your choosing and tie it through the hole in the gift tag, then you can stick this on to your presents.

I think these add such a nice touch to christmas presents and i like how simple and nice they look on presents.

I hope you like this DIY and please like and comment if you would like more of these blog post’s.
