In light of my holiday mood these days (I have been listening to the Mariah Carey Holiday Station on Pandora all week long), I wanted to do something festive with my nails. While perusing an amazing nail polish blog, called Steffel's, I came across a very creative way to spice up a red manicure with one coat of glitter polish sandwiched between two coats of red polish (the post can be found here). I loved the look it created since it was much more bold than your typical shimmer red polish. I decided to put my own twist on this concept and add in a statement nail with a little gold shimmer. I was pretty pleased with how the manicure came out but I think next week in preparation for Christmas Eve I might try an even chunkier glitter polish in silver to kick it up one more notch.
