Icy Manicure 

Icy Manicure 
  • Two coats of CND Vinylux “Winter Glow,” icicle design in “Tundra” and “Nordic Lights,” one coat of Vinylux topcoat.
  • A striping brush makes this look a breeze to complete and the best part about icicles is that they are very difficult to mess up!

Ombré Gradient

Ombré Gradient
  • The secret to a successful ombré of metallics is to keep very little polish on the brush and work in thin layers.
  • Apply “A Little Naughty” to the cuticle half of the nail, and “Tinsel My Fancy” from the middle to the free edge. Slowly work in “All Wrapped Up” at the cuticle and “Gifted In Platinum” at the free edge.
  • Apply top coat while the polish is still wet to help the ombré blend together even more.
