DIY: Christmas Red Glitter Nails


Hi Lovelies,

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:

  1. Glass nail file
  2. Nail polish remover(pads)
  3. Base coat
  4. Red nail polish
  5. Glitter top coatchristmas-red-glitter-nails-2


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.MANICURE NAILS BASE COAT


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!

So tell me, will you add some glitz to your nails this Christmas? Let me know in the comment section below. xo, Jey.
