Quick and Easy Holiday Nails


For beauty fanatics like myself, it's much easier to get into the fun and festive holiday spirit when your nails are all glitzed up. For those of you who have been reading this blog, you know how I'm all about doing my own nails. My go-to for this year is Essie's Luxeffects holiday collection because I can get dazzling holiday nails in a snap.

All of these colors are fun to wear by themselves if you want a minimal look, but hey, it's the holidays, so why not just go all out? According to Shape magazine, one of the holiday nail trends is "Layers of Lustre".

Glitter Nail Polish


I attempted to get my lustre on by layering Ruby Kisses' "Black Cherry" nail polish and Essie's "Set in Stones", which is as glittery and shiny as you can get.

Q-tips Precision Tips
My new favorite tool to use when doing my nails is Q-tips Precision Tips, which are tapered at both ends. I don't always have a steady hand when applying nail polish, so when I do mess up and get nail polish on the skin around my nails, I can just dip these Q-tips in nail polish remover and fix it. Voila! Perfect manicure :)

  1. Oh, lovely! If I could achieve these nails, they'll be perfect for Saturday's party where the theme is "shining shimmering splendid!" LOL
