Manicure Monday Festive Series – Look #1

Manicure Monday Festive Series will be live every Monday in December. Simple and easy looks to get you through the festive season… by someone who isn’t that great at nail art! Enjoy!


Ahhh So I decided to do a “series” on the blog and here is the first part. I enjoy painting my nails…all the time, but especially in the festive season because I can go a little glitter crazy. So I thought each Monday through December I would bring you a festive nail look that you can easily try yourself, or just look at. Whichever floats your boat.

Look #1 is super easy, just using 2 colours. I’ve been wanting to pair the Face of Australia Midnight Fireworks (from the current Carnivale collection) with a nude since I got it so that’s where I got the idea for this first look. The other great thing is this is a combo you can easily wear into the office because the glitter isn’t too obvious.

All I did was paint all my nails nude with Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Polish in Always Naked and waited for it to try before placing some tape to make a crisp diagonal section (you could do this free hand but i’m not that steady handed). I then carefully painted Face of Australia Midnight Fireworks on the tip. Removed the tape and added a top coat. SIMPLE! This idea can be used with so many different colours and textures, and best of all… It’s pretty fool proof. Enjoy!
