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:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
