It’s that time of year again, time to show the love of your life how bright your holiday nails are! You want to make sure that you take some pictures of the happy couple or the smiling little ones in your family and post them on a nail art blog on the internet. If you do this, you can provide wonderful memories for everyone who participates in these memories. Of course, your nails will be bright and shiny from all of the effort that goes into the designs, but don’t forget about the manicure and pedicure that you’ll be getting too! The nail art business is a booming one and those lovely bright holiday nails are a perfect accessory to any manicure!
For instance, consider the idea of designing the “Happy New Year” collection. Bright and beautiful nails can be used to create a cute, bright, yet festive look for the holidays! As long as you remember to pick up your favorite colored clippers and have a little patience, you can create these bright designs that will look fantastic with any type of coat or sweater.
Let’s say you’re designing a “Happy Birthday” design. Bright, gorgeous nails are perfect for this look. You could start with pink and white striped gels and use the ends to stick on glittery, colorful, bow-like decorations. Don’t forget to add a little bit of glitter to the tips as well so that they shine. There are so many great ideas to keep in mind for these types of designs!
If you don’t like bright gels and ribbons, consider using a pomade for your nails. You can purchase nail polish in a variety of different colors and there are pomade kits available that allow you to make your own creative nail pomade. Pomsicle sticks are a wonderful addition to this style because they can easily be removed for cleaning. You can then dip your nail clippers into some of your nail glue and craft whatever design you desire.
For something a little more inexpensive, try creating some handmade embellishments or jewels for your nails. There are so many wonderful options available today for tiny beads, wire, buttons, seeds, glitter and pearls. You can even choose to make your own embellishments by gluing together some toothpicks, gold paint, shells from a China set and some ribbon! You can have fun stringing beads and embellishing your nails for hours at a time.
Keep your nails healthy by taking care of them. You can get a manicure at a day spa that will clean and condition your nails at the same time. Make sure that you keep your cuticles soft by clipping them every night and applying oil (such as jojoba or coconut) to them twice a week. You’ll soon have long lasting, bright looking nails!
