T'is the season to be totally festive. I've always loved nail art and firmly believe that even adding a little bit of an accent completely ups your outfit. The problems with nail art is that it's expensive and/or time consuming. (My favorite nail place charges $68 for a designer manicure. That's without tip!) What if I told you that it doesn't have to be either of those things?
Oh yeah, you'll want to keep reading. I've come up with three different ways you can achieve the perfect holiday manicure without breaking the bank. You'll want to, and be able to, have fabulous nails all year long.
Original nail art:
I'm no artist, okay? My stick figures would scare David Cronenberg. But! I have found an unbelievably easy to way to create adorable designs on my manicures using a nail art pen. They come in oodles of colors and are very simple to use. I like the ones by Sally Hansen because the tips are fine an you can get as detailed as you wish.
You can use stickers if you'd like. But I prefer to make my own! Watch how I make custom decals made out of nail polish that last for days. Match them to your outfit, cut them out using scissors or punchers, and apply them easily with a top coat.

I was never a fan of fake nails because I always felt that they looked, well, fake. When I was introduced to imPRESS nails, it was love at first...nail? Because they are sooooo easy to use (like, a 5 minute application) and last for about a week, they have quickly become a beauty staple. If you didn't know, you probably wouldn't know, would you?? This matte look is so trendy and the glitter accent makes it very merry.
Hope you "nail" your holiday mani. Let us know which one you tried or if you have another favorite way to decorate your nails!
