Blogger Of The Week #22

Karen 640 x 420

Hi Everyone!  I’m Karen, a qualified nail technician and beauty therapist with a You Tube channel for nail tutorials and a daily beauty blog, Liverpool Lashes Blog.


I’m honoured and absolutely delighted to be LookFantastic’s ‘Blogger Of The Week’ so for this post I decided to get everyone into the Christmas spirit by filming a Festive Santa & Christmas Tree Nail Tutorial, especially for you.

I had so much fun putting together this video, I wanted it to be almost like a little scene on your nails so I choose Essie’s Smooth Sailing for the background colour.  It’s a stunning lilac toned blue with ultra fine glitter running through it, almost like tiny flecks of snow.


Santa had to be a key feature in this design so I choose to put him on the ring finger, clutching a brightly coloured parcel for someone special from his list.  If you wanted a more subtle look – but still be festive – you could just paint the Christmas tree on your ring finger and leave the others without art.


List of colours to use

Essie – Smooth Sailing

OPI Start to Finish

butter LONDON – Jack The Lad

Red Carpet Queen – Goldfinger

Leighton Denny – Not Tonight

Nails Inc Westbourne Park

Mavala Black Nail Colour

Jessica Nail Colour – Dazed Dahlia



I hope you enjoyed this post today.  I have quite a few Christmas step-by-step tutorials on and on my blog  I’m also on Twitter and Instagram where I share photos of my recent work as a nail technician, just search for ‘liverpoollashes’

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
