Candy Cane Nails
I read an article on instyle.com about holiday nails and I had to share my favourite bits with you;) There are some fun ideas for the holiday season!
WHAT TO KEEP IN MIND For glimmering nails—not gauche ones—manicurist Ashlie Johnson recommends the following tip: "Paint your nails a solid color first, then layer glitter on just the tips—like a French manicure." Bonus: Since glitter formulas are harder to remove, your manicure has more staying power.
WHAT TO KEEP IN MIND To keep your metallic mani as shiny as Hailee Steinfeld's, Johnson suggests applying with a smooth, even stroke. "Metallics are challenging because they show more flaws than opaque polish," she says. "Stick to three even swipes per nail, and finish with a generous amount of clear top coat to prevent fading."
WHAT TO KEEP IN MIND With Orly's Instant Artist polish, top off a red mani with thin ribbons of white for sweet candy cane nails. The microfine brush makes precise lines easy—even for nail art novices. Or, opt for less perfect stripes with magnetic nail polish. "Magnetic polishes are great for creating quick, easy nail art," says Kyees. "The Nails Inc. magnet leaves behind cool chevron stripes."
