Mont Bleu products inspired nail art

A few day's before Christmas I received a totally unexpected package from Mont Bleu in the Czech Republic.  I was completely blown away by the package they sent me to wish me Happy Holidays and I was so inspired by the package that I created some inspired by nail art.

I took inspiration for the large foot file that has a pink gradient on it and various pink coloured Swarovski crystals.  I created a gradient using Picture Polish Fairy Floss, Candy and Mad Magenta. I then used a silver foil polish and mixed a little bit of Mad Magenta into it to create various colours of pink foil.  I then used a dotting tool to do gradient coloured dots up my nail in the reverse direction to the gradient.

I then proceeded to take photos of my nails with all the different products that Mont Blue had sent.  So lets take a look at them all.

Large Foot file. Just as fantastic as their smaller regular nail files. This is a much larger file designed to file away that dry skin on your feet. See that holo sticker on the file, that's how you know you have the genuine product!

Metal mirror compact encrusted with pink Swarovski crystals.

Shamballa Bracelet with Swarovski crystals

Bag hanger - I love this so much. I was always hooking the strap of my handbag over my leg when I go to restaurants, but now I hang this on the edge of the table and hook my bag on. When not in use, the hook part neatly wraps around the top creating a neat little circle that slips into your bag.

Hair Brush encrusted with Swarovski Crystals - I actually wrapped this up for my daughter for Christmas. It is the perfect brush for her. It has both longer plastic bristles and shorter natural boar bristles.

Ring featuring cube shaped Swarovski crystals.

Earrings - matching design to the ring featuring cube shaped Swarovski crystals.

I love how the whole package was colour coordinated.  I don't think I would ever have chosen a pink set, instead I would have defaulted to type and chosen cool blues and greens, but I actually can't believe how much I love the pinks.

I still use the Mont Bleu glass nail file that I was provided for review six months ago. You can see my review here. If you are in the market for a great quality glass nail file, then I highly recommend the Mont Blue files. Mine is still as perfect as it was the day I got it, and I really do use it every single day.

All these products are available from the Mont Blue site direct from Prague!

Products provided as a gift.


  1. Great inspiration idea and what a fabulous collections of goodies. I might have to copy your idea and do something inspired by my Mont Bleu files. I have a green set and I love them :)

  2. Wow what beautiful nails in honor of Mont Bleu, I credit Mont Bleu files as the reason I now have nails after decades of biting and picking at them, Since I got mine and fell in love I have bought so many for friends and I will never use another file again. The ring and earrings are gorgeous too, what a lovely surprise you must have gotten, and it couldn't have come to a nicer lady xxx

  3. Awesome post, I love it! And your pics are beautiful as always! :) x

  4. I love these Mont Bleu products and can see myself having to order some things - not just for me but also as gifts.
    I really love how you do these dotted nails with your graduation of colors - classy - as is Mont Bleu.

  5. These look like great products! I love the nail design, the gradient is so pretty :)

  6. I adore my Mont Bleu file; by far the best I have ever used. I am going to help my grandma order from their Web site tomorrow. I also have one of the bag hangers. Sadly, some of the crystals have come off, but it is still very functional.
