I’ve been wanting to do a candy cane manicure for the past couple of years now. As you probably already know, I am a bit of a perfectionist with my manis and I couldn’t find an image plate that worked, as it would need different width stripes, and I wasn’t about to free hand this one lol.
Luckily, Sally Hansen came through for me and “nailed it” with their candy cane Peppermint Twist Salon Effects press on nail polish strips! Everything about this manicure screams candy cane – different width stripes, different color stripes (pink, red, and white), the speckled red and white looks like the porous surface of a candy cane, and the finish is a semi-gloss – not too shiny, not too matte – just like a candy cane.
What do you all think of this manicure? Is this something you would try?
