Festive Nails

heroI love nothing more than a simple classic red manicure for the festive season, something like Julep’s Karissa. As much as I like candy cane nail art or its seasonal equivalent, I have more pressing matters to attend to like work and holiday parties. So chips and smudges manage to creep up on me even when I use high quality nail polishes. Luckily I found a great way to disguise them in seasonal appropriate style so that you can get on with the champagne sipping this holiday season!

What you’ll need:

  • Red nail polish
  • Gold glitter or gold glitter nail polish

I like creating a statement nail by either dusting it with loose glitter or adding a coat of glitter polish as it adds a nice pop to a holiday manicure without requiring any trouble. It is also a great way to disguise a nasty chip or smudge as you don’t have to worry about the texture showing through.

Simply add a fresh coat of polish to the chosen finger and lightly dust with glitter ensuring that the entire nail is covered. It is obviously preferable to just give it a coat with a glitter polish as it is less messy and will last longer, but glitter is a great alternative.

  • This looks great, love the idea of the gold glitter accent nail as I sometimes find glitter on every nail a bit too much : D

    • Thanks Ruby, I must admit the texture of glitter polish kind of freaks me out. This is about as much as I can handle.
