Blogmas Day 3: Holiday Nails

Hello everyone!  Today I wanted to do an easy DIY holiday nail look perfect for any upcoming holiday parties or get togethers!  For this look, I also used for the first time the Nutra Nail "No Mess Express" gel remover pads to take off my existing manicure (THUMBS DOWN) and will be talking about them in my next post!

What you will need for this look:

I first primed my nails with Essie's "fill the gap" primer.  I really love this particular one because it gives my nails a nice smooth base for the polish.  It also fills in any ridges or uneveness that I sometimes get on my nails from doing the gel nails in the salon.

Next, let the primer dry before applying two coats of the polish of your choice!  I am using "Forever Yummy" by Essie, which is a gorgeous candy apple red!

I allowed the two coats to dry and applied one coat of silver sparkles to the bottom half of my nail!  I love this look and think its perfect for the holiday season!

Thanks for reading!

  2. It's cute, very simple but still very holiday appropriate. Essie needs to stop making beautiful polishes so I can stop spending money.
