If you have a lot of parties lined up for the season, it will be best if you opt for the Swarovski crystals on your nails. These tiny crystals will lend you the glamour for any evening out. You can also create tiny alphabets, figures or little stars with these crystals on your nails and create your signature style. Christmas parties call for tiny stars and nail art in the form of rhinestones or even silk fabric on your nails to enhance their beauty. Fabric draped gracefully on your nails is sure to get you a lot of compliments.
The essentials are: a base coat (to prevent nail discolouration and allow your nail polish to glide on smoothly), nail polish, and a top coat (to ensure your manicure lasts for more than a day). I like to use a quick drying top coat cos that saves oodles of time and is so convenient to use, but it`s also good to have a normal top coat or clear polish in hand for certain more complex nail designs. After trying loads of different brands, I`ve found that it`s so important to invest in good quality nail polish. These are more expensive but they`re worth it cos they last longer, dry faster and don`t get lumpy. I`ve had such bad experiences with cheap nail polish that now I`m just sticking to brands that I`ve used before (and like) and reputable brands. Orly, OPI, China Glaze, Sally Hansen and Essie are some of the good ones. It`s also a good idea to test out polish from a brand you`ve not tried before buying it.
As the holiday season nears, some cool nail art designs to pep up the spirit for Christmas can be to use red or white nail paint and then decorate your nails with tiny Christmas trees, holly leaves, bells, candy canes or even a little Santa with a toothpick. You can also add glitter to your nails to make them look festive and glamorous. Winter calls for shiny metallic finish for the nails and then painting snowflakes with white nail paint on them. When it is Halloween, you can use black varnish as a base coat and then make figures of skulls, Jack o Lantern, ghosts and various Halloween figures.
