A Trendy Manicure Idea For the Holidays

All That Glitters Is Green: Learn This Trendy Holiday Manicure

Since purples, glitters, and textured finishes are just about everywhere these days, I decided to make my own spin on these trends by creating this glittery green and purple holiday manicure. First, I started off with two thin layers of Nyx Fig ($3), which is slightly similar to Chanel's wildly popular Paradoxal. (Be sure to check out a few tips for applying a dark polish here.)

Then, I used the Teal Sparkle Effect shade from CND's Fall/Winter 2010 Night Factory Duo set ($16) as a top coat. The almost-iridescent results I got from combining these cool-toned shades together garnered lots of compliments. And nobody even noticed my less-than-model perfect digits. (It's an an intense job, anyway.)
