HOLIDAY CANDY CANE
When it comes to playful holiday prints nothing feels more fun than a classic candy cane stripe. This simple recreation of the look manages to feel modern but not overly saccharine; festive without feeling kitsch.
The snow-white base makes a modern and minimal foundation for a sweet holiday look. The combination of bold and fine burgundy stripes is a subtle and elegant way to celebrate the season.
This look features Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in “ Dig Fig” and Xtreme Hard As Nail ‘White On”
The care you give your nails before applying nail polish is the real key to a healthy long lasting manicure. Using Nail Rehab a day before creating the look will ensure that ridges and imperfections are concealed while strengthening weak nails. It creates a defensive shield to protect against bending, breaking, and tearing making the nail look last throughout the busy holiday season.
NAIL LOOK HOW-TO’S
Step 1. Paint two coats of Xtreme Hard As Nail White On
Step 2. Using a striping brush, apply diagonal lines using Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Dig Fig leaving an ample amount of space between stripes. You can place stripes in opposite direction on different fingers to add some variety to the design.
Step 3. Then paint skinny stripes in between these wider diagonal stripes and have them follow along the same angle.
Step 4. Apply Miracle Gel Top Coat
