Christmas is the time of year when you can wear all the glitter you want and not look like a 5 year old, it is also the time of year when I see a ton of different nail art designs out there and whilst they all look incredible, I honestly do not have the time to sit down for half an hour and create festive looking designs. So today, I thought I would show you my fail safe festive nails for the holidays.
I simply used three different nail polishes and alternated them on my fingers, the ones that I chose today was Barry M - White, which is a plain white polish with a cream finish, it is a little sheer so I had to do about three coats for a clean and opaque finish. I then decided to use Kate Spade by Nails Inc in the shade Big Apple Red, which again is a plain true red polish with a cream finish, and with just one coat it was completely opaque. Unfortunately this was a free gift that came with Glamour magazine last year but Nails Inc - Tate is very similar.
In order to make everything a little bit more fancy I opted for one of my favourite glitter polishes by OPI. Personally, I think OPI makes the best glitter polishes (followed closely by Deborah Lippmann) since they have great a formulation. The shade I chose is OPI - Excuse Moi!, which was from the Muppets collection a few years ago but I think you can still get your hands on it. Excuse Moi! is a multicoloured glitter in a red base, which also has smaller silver glitter running through it. I did about two coats to get an opaque finish and I then topped it off with Butter London Hardwear topcoat, which is a great topcoat to use because it has a thinner formula so it dries within seconds and it gives a clean and glossy finish to your manicure.
So like I said before this is my fail safe festive nails and everyone can do it for the holidays.
