‘Tis that time of the year. Festive makeup, festive nails, festive clothing, lights, sparkle! I took a different approach to festive nails by using the same technique used to create the Shattered Glass Nail trend.
I used Essie‘s Urban Jungle as a base, and whenever I’m doing more than just painting my nails (doing nail art like this), I always use Essie‘s Gel Setter Topcoat. As for the gold foil, I just got these from ebay. You can definitely use gift wrapping paper (that was the material of the gold foil that I got). Cut it up into little triangles of various shapes and place them on fresh painted nails (before they are dry!). Then, you can make it fancier by adding little golden studs! Then top it off with the topcoat! Voila 🙂
There are no glitters or sparkles, but it definitely is festive. The white pink color with the gold reflective pieces is something different but really fun and different.
