This is a slight variation on what I wore on my nails on Christmas Day. For Christmas I actually wore Models Own Champagne with black gems. The purple polish is Avon Pro Enamel in Violetta Sparkle and was a Christmas gift. Purple isn't a colour I'd usually go for, I always think purple makes your nails look bruised, a bit like you've slammed them in a car door or something. This purple is sparkly though and the sparkles kind of detract from the 'bruised' look.
I've never bought Avon polish before and I'm quite impressed with it. The polishes are £6 each and it lasted for as long as I wanted it to. I'm not allowed to wear nail varnish for work so I had to take this off after two days but it didn't chip before I removed it. It only took two layers to get the colour I wanted too.
The gems are from Accessorize and were another Christmas gift. They came with a set of two nail art pens. The pens have a nib, a brush and a twist off bottom full of sparkles so they're like 3 in 1. Possibly my favourite Christmas present this year, I'm dead excited to try out a few more designs!
