Simple Manicure

My favorite holiday red glitter manicure

October 15, 2012

Note: Every few months or so, I trim my nails down pretty short. This is just one of those times. Give me a month and they’ll be a more normal length. But hey! Short, stubby nails need polish, too, right? ;)

Today I’m wearing one of my favorite winter holiday combinations. In October, you ask? Absolutely! I’ve been filming some holiday cardmaking videos and it seemed fitting to have red nails.

This favorite combination includes two colors from last year’s holiday collection from China Glaze: Velvet Bow (a deep burgundy) and Ring in the Red (an awesome red glitter). I love layering the glitter on top of the cream polish. It gives it such a deep, rich look. :)

    I love the length of your nails! It is amazing how I can think my nails look good, then I take a picture. Pictures show more than the naked eye! Your nails are flawless!

    My nails – sadly – are usually always that short. Even with the Nail Hardener under my polish and Calcium suppliments, I just have weak nails that break. Just when I think I am going to have longer nails, one snaps… I love me some polish though :) And polish away I do.

    when i first bought ring in the red i tried it by itself and hated how badly it chipped…i’ll have to try it layered over another red…

    I love the combo – makes a great red… I have short nails and doing them up is the way to keep them from looking worn down/chewed off…LOL
