Manicure Mondays – Gold Encrusted French and Moon

Essie Rock At The Top Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low Cut Out Negative Space Holiday Christmas Manicure Nail Art

Happy Manicure Mondays! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I have another super fun holiday manicure for you all. Last week I did a Christmas ornament nail art manicure using Essie’s winter holiday collection and today, I came up with something a bit more simple, also using Essie’s winter collection.

This manicure, inspired by the Tadashi Shoji New York Fashion Week runway manicure featured in my 8 Elegant Fall Manicure roundup, was super easy because I didn’t use a base color. In the spirit of the negative space cut out manicures that are so popular right now, and in the spirit of saving time, I added my gold french tips and moons directly to my nails, rather than having to wait for a base color to dry before adding the tape. This sparkly manicure is so fun because I wore it all week with jeans and a t shirt, but it can also be dressed up for a fun holiday party!

Start by taping off your moons and your tips, all using french tips stickers. Make sure you press the edges down very well so that you don’t get paint under a sticker bubble.

Paint two coats of Essie’s Jiggle Hi, and Jiggle Low at the moon and tips. Slowly peel off the stickers while the polish is still wet. After it has dried, paint with a top coat.

Add a golden sparkle to your moons and french manicure by dabbing on Essie’s Rock At The Top, from their LuxeEffects collection {check out my swatches of the original Essie LuxeEffects collection}. I went a little thick with this because I wanted the manicure to have a textured gold encrusted look.

Essie’s Jiggle Hi, and Jiggle Low is a perfect “gilver” {gold meets silver}, making it my go-to color for the holidays. Last week, I brought out the silver tones by topping it with Essie’s Set In Stones in my Christmas ornament nail art manicure. This week, I’m playing up the gold tones by topping it with the super sparkly gold glitter found in Essie’s Rock At The Top!
