Essie Holiday Christmas Nail Art Manicure Tuck It In My Tux Jiggle High Jiggle Low Luxe Effects Set In Stones Silver Glitter Nail Polish

Hey everyone! Happy Manicure Mondays. I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend full of food, fun, and a little relaxation! I was lucky enough to enjoy a four day weekend with my family and I’ve been smiling ever since. Yesterday was the most gorgeous Florida day I’ve seen in a long time, so we had our windows open while blasting the Christmas music and we even picked up a tree already! I guess we were a little excited about our first Christmas in the new house with our little man John!

With all of that, is it too soon to bring on the Christmas nail art? lol. Clearly, I was in the mood. I thought I’d play with my Essie Winter 2014 collection and I came up with a fun take on a pearly white Christmas ornament. My first thought was to add diagonal curved tips using Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low over Tuck It In My Tux {similar to my nude and navy diagonal french tips manicure}, but then I got a little excited and added Essie LuxeEffects {LuxeEffect collection swatches} Set In Stones to give a little extra holiday sparkle with a diamond tips effect.

Start with three to four coats of Essie Tuck It In My Tux sheer white nail polish and top with a dry fast top coat. Wait for this layer to dry COMPLETELY {I came back to this hours later}, before you apply any tape.

Next, place a round office label over each nail tip, high on one side and low on the other, to create a diagonal curved effect. Cut the labels in half to get two nails out of each. Make sure the label is pressed down well against the first layer of polish, in particular against the sides of your nails and then add one coat of Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low to your tips.

Remove each piece of tape while the polish is still wet. This prevents the nail polish from pulling or cracking once it’s dry.

I love this wintery combination of Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Lo tips over Tuck It In My Tux! Leave it as is, or carry on to add a bit of diamond sparkle glam to your tips!
