Simple Red Glitter Christmas Manicure

* * * Make sure to check out my birthday giveaway here * * *
First let me apologize for not posting for a few days! (here comes the lame excuse) I simply just didn't have the time to do it. But I am back with a really simple Christmas manicure.

The gorgeous red glitter polish was given to me in a swap with Iris (Polish Amor). I remember when unpacking the package my brother was looking and this one was definitely his favorite. And I'm not talking about him wanting to wear polish :P He even asked me a few days ago what the brand of this polish was, because a friend of him needs a red glitter polish xD

This red glitter is called Dorothy and is by NYX. It has a sheer black base and you would need at least 3 or 4 coats to get this opaque and you would be stuck with lots of glitter on your nails. I only painted my nails with 2 coats of a black polish and applied this one on the tips and a little under that. 

This manicure was done 6 days ago and in those six days my nails changed... An intern at work has a friend who wanted to provide me some acrylics. I gave in, but regret it. I knew acrylics were bad for your nails, but I actually don't like it, because it turned out ugly... So I wanted to ask if anybody knows if I can get them off by holding my nails in alcohol?

Thanks in advance :P

Also thank you for reading and I hope you will have an amazing Christmas!
