With Thanksgiving and Hanukkah falling in the same week, we decided to give the glitter ombré manicure a festive twist. A deep navy hue is the perfect base for any Winter holiday; we used CoverGirl Nail Gloss in Sapphire Flare ($5). Creating a glitter ombré is easy when you already have a glitter top coat like Essie Set in Stones ($9). Apply the chunky silver glitter from the middle point of your nail, and then add two to three coats on the tips to create the gradient effect. To give our glittering manicure a seasonal update, we sealed in the look with a matte topcoat using Ciaté Mattnificent ($17). The velvety finish is a fun twist on the sparkling look. But even without a matte finish, the glossy version (below) is still an easy look to pull off just in time for Thanksgiving and Hanukkah.
