How are you planning on decorating your nails for Christmas this year? I created a simple santa nails tutorial to share with you guys today, hopefully there’s an idea here you can grab for your holiday manicure.
Today I will be showing you guys how to do a simple gold and black tape mani, playing with matte and shiny finishes.
All polishes used in this tutorial were provided by the wonderful Live Love Polish. They’re currently having a Black Friday sale from now until Monday Dec 1st. Don’t miss out! Today’s tutorial features LVX Alchemy. This is a gorgeous high-shine gold jam packed with shimmer.
The swatches below are taken under direct light so you can see it’s beauty. *_*. The formula is excellent, fully opaque after 2 coats with a top coat. (Top coat is really optional for this polish).
Today I’m showing you guys how to do a simple cranberry halfmoon tutorial. This look uses pretty basic colors that compliment almost any outfit. For example, you could easily pair this with a cute white/beige sweater and dark red jeans, or a simple cranberry colored dress for Thanksgiving dinner.
For today’s nail art, I decided to start off with a base of the beautiful piCture pOlish Lagoon. It is a beautiful glitter/scatter holo mix suspended in turquoise. I love the depth of the glitter in this polish, the hex glitters add such a nice touch! It’s like little bubbles in the water.
To compliment this polish, I decided to paint the Little Mermaid and her buddy Flounder on top. I used some rhinestones from the bornprettystore (#7300). The package came with a number of colors but for this look I only used the dark blue as little bubbles.
