This is the manicure I wore on Christmas day! I wanted something red, and I didn’t know if I wanted to do glittery or classic red. I probably went back and forth with different options for about an hour before finally deciding on the combo I came up with.
Because I get weird and bored when I argue with myself about my own nails (I basically have an internal war every time I do my nails) I took a break from self argument and grabbed a snack from my kitchen. On my dining table my mom left out some stuffing stockers and I suddenly realized that I wanted to do red and golds and glitter and then painted my nails accordingly.
My mom’s little stocking stuffers were wrapped in red tissue paper that had little holographic hexes in them and were tied with a gold ribbon.
For the red I chose OPI’s Smitten With Mittens, which is now a holiday go-to for me, and is a red with gold flecks ofr glitter. The red is a deep, classic blue toned red almost jelly. For the hex, I used OPI’s Which is Witch?, a clear based glitter with bar, hex and micro holo glitter. And for the gold, I used OPI’s All Sparkly And Gold, from the Mariah Carey Holiday collection.
I loved the way this turned out and loved the combo of the gold with the red.
What colors did you guys end up using during the holidays? I hope you all had an amazing holiday!
