The 12th Day of Christmas Polish: Festive in Red & Gold
Good Evening! It is finally the 12th day of Christmas Polishes. I have to admit that a nail polish blog is a lot of work and I give so much to credit to all of you who have one. My look today is a simple, yet real holiday inspired look. I used China Glaze's Poinsettia & Twinkle Lights. I think that the combination of red and gold is so timeless and elegant and I have used it for everything from my senior prom dress to the color scheme for my wedding. I think it looks best at Christmas Time.
I used Poinsettia on all of my nails except my index finger. I painted my index finger with Twinkle Lights for something different. Poinsettia is a real classic Christmas red and Twinkle Lights is a gold glitter polish with specks of red and green in it. To make the Twinkle Lights pop off the nail, I did use about three coats of polish to cover the surface. I applied two coats of the red to the rest of my nails.
Finally, on my ring finger, I applied some of China Glaze's Tarnished Gold, their crackle polish. To tie the crackle in with the rest of the look, I applied one coat of Twinkle Lights over it. I think that this look is funky and appropriate. It is very easy and a great alternative to a plain red holiday manicure.
Thank you so much for reading this post and the other eleven posts that I wrote for the Christmas nails. I hope that you have a fabulous holiday!
