Holiday Nails How-To: Creating Healthy, Beautiful Nails for Holiday Parties


If you’ve wanted to try new nail polish techniques but haven’t had the guts yet, the holidays are the perfect time to jazz up your fingers. Chic parties include beautiful cocktails, which require manicured nails to compliment them. This winter, spend your money on Christmas gifts, hair extensions, or that new pair of fabulous shoes to complete your party outfit. Take a stab at doing your nails yourself and you’ll be amazed at the results.

Every good manicure requires a good foundation for the color. Take your vitamins all year round to increase the health and appearance of your nails. Drink plenty of water, and keep manicure tools just outside the shower. Every time you shave, be sure to take a glance at your nails and maintain them if necessary with regular trimmings.

If you’d like an easy but festive look on your nails, get a glitter nail polish in a silver or gold color, and a darker festive color to paint on underneath. If you want a classic look with a bit of pizzazz, go with a true or deep red color. Apply two coats and let the red dry completely. Once it is dry, paint over it with the glitter nail polish until you achieve the desired amount of glitter. Let dry completely and cover with a top coat to protect the polish and extend its life. If you want to jazz up this technique, choose a less traditional color, like a dark green or blue. Dark green will match the gorgeous evergreen decorations of the season, and blue will remind you of a beautiful, snowy evening. Stay away from light or pastel colors until the spring or summer months.

If you’d like to get a bit more ambitious with your nail color, seek out some online tutorials for painting multiple colors on your nails. These tutorials include a popular technique of painting the entire nail in one color, letting it dry, and then covering a portion of the nail with tape. When the tape has been stuck on, you can paint another color on the exposed part of the nail and peel away the tape to create a strong, clean line and two tones of color. This technique is fabulous for the holidays when you pair a metallic, shiny polish with a solid color like red, green, or blue.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
