When I think of Christmas, I think of celebration, food, parties, get-to-gethers with lots of glitz and glam. One of the primary colors that’s mostly and traditionally associated with Christmas is red. So in the spirit of Christmas I will show you how to create a quick and easy manicure combining red nail polish with a glitter top coat.
All you need are the below 5 items:
- Glass nail file
- Nail polish remover(pads)
- Base coat
- Red nail polish
- Glitter top coat
Quickly file your nails to make them look smooth and to a length and shap that you like. I prefer to use a glass file, because it’s hygenic, makes my nails grow stronger and prevents my nails from flaking. I used a glass nail file by a Dutch brand that goes by the name of “KOH cosmetics”
Clean your nails with your choice of nail polish remover. I recently started using oil-based remover pads with aloe vera, because it’s quick and easy. Then rinse your hands and nails with water and dry them with a towel.
Apply your choice of base coat on all your nails. I used a base coat from a Dutch drug store brand that goes by the name of HEMA.
After the base coat has set and dried for a minute, then apply your choice of red nail polish. I applied 2 layers using OPI‘s “Dutch Tullips”.
After about 2 minutes of letting the red polish dry, apply your choice of glitter top coat. I used a silver colored top coat(2 layers!), also by Dutch drug store brand HEMA. You can also opt for glitter nail polish followed by a top coat, but I chose the 2-in-1.
Et voila… Here are my Christmas red glitter nails!
Merry Christmas everyone!
