[Tutorial] - Christmas manicure!

Hey everyone!

The last couple of days I've been working hard on my many upcoming posts but today I want to take a break and share with you a tutorial on the Christmas manicure I gave myself yesterday. Daylight becomes a scarcity up here in the North during winter so it wasn't possible for me to take the last pictures yesterday. However, the day has only just begun so you should have plenty of time left to do your nails before tonight (*ᴖ◡ᴖ*)☆*°

Here are the products that I used:
 From left to right: red nail from H&M, a nail polish with large gold flakes (which I forgot the name of), top coat carat in gold from L'Oréal7 in 1 savior also from L'Oréal, and an unbranded top coat.

Since I would be using a red nail polish, I used the 7 in 1 savior as a base coat to protect my nails from stains. I have often used this by itself as it makes my nail a bit harder and thus helps preventing them from breaking.
Next I used the red polish to cover the white parts of my nails. I did this to all of my fingers except the ring fingers. One of my ring fingers I painted red entirely and the other was left blank (for now).
The next step I sadly forgot to take pictures of but it's very simple; all I did was to draw a line with the glittery gold polish from L'Oréal and once it had dried, I drew a new line on top of it with the gold flakes polish. The reason I used was because I liked this effect better than if I had just used one of them. The first one functioned as a 'background' for the gold flakes polish as this one by itself wouldn't have covered the transition from the red to the base coat.
(The sun gave up on me so I had to move to the window still to get enough light)
I covered the ring finger I had left blank before entirely with two layers of the top coat carat and once it had dried I added a layer of the gold flakes polish.
At last I added top coat to prevent the gold flakes from catching on to fabric and voilà!

I hope you found my tutorial helpful (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
What do your Christmas nails look like?

  1. You definitely had a wonderful Chrismas with such a magic manicure! Though my manicure was also ideal as I got it done at the professional nail nail nail salon.

    1. Thank you! I'm happy that you liked it! :)
      I'm sure your nails must have looked wonderful as well since you had them professionally done ^^ I wish I could have mine done too more often.
