Are you looking for some cute holiday nails for the new year? After all, it’s about the time of year that you begin to think about getting in the spirit for the holidays. Of course, if you’re anything like most women, you probably already have your mind on what kind of manicure and pedicure you’re going to get. For most women though, the only thing stopping them from jumping into the holiday mood is usually the fear of whether or not their cute nails will turn into bruises by December.
Don’t worry! All your beautiful nails will be perfectly intact come January. The only thing that could possibly stop you is the condition of your nails. But fear not! If you want your cute Christmas nails, you’ve got to get started now. Here are a few simple but effective ideas to get you started.
Start with an OPI gel base coat. This way you can ensure that your manicure stays looking fresh and vibrant all year long. You don’t want to end up applying too much polish to keep your nails looking nice. You want to make sure that you cover each nail in the foundation or color. This will help protect them from chipping, cracking and drying out.
Next, you’ll need to pick out your nail color. This should be the same as your outfit. While you don’t have to match your nails to your outfit, it would look best if they compliment each other. So if you have a red skirt and white top, pick out red polish and put it on the tip of your little pink nails. If you have a pretty dress with gold shoes, get green polish and put it on your index finger.
You now need to apply that beautiful polish to your nails so you can start decorating them up. Start by filing your nails down so they’re nice and smooth. Then take some cute holiday nails stencils and draw cute Christmas scenes on each of your nails. You can draw hearts, reindeer, snowmen and more to make the picture look even better.
Use some hot glue guns to stick the stencils to your nails. Once you’re happy with them, apply a base coat of polish to make your nails glossy and ready for the top coat. Now it’s time to add your top coat of paint and you can either use gel or liquid because you can paint over it with a brush. You’ll be amazed at how cute your cute holiday nails will look and you can even pass them off to a friend as a gift!
