Classic Red And Gold Christmas Manicure


Hey Beauties!

When it comes to Christmas my color scheme includes gold and red. It's a classic color combination in my opinion. All my Christmas tree ornament are also gold and red. That's why I decided to do a classic red and gold Christmas nails with lots of glitter.

Before I start any manicure, I always apply base coat to my nails. Then I painted all my nails, except ring finger, with matte red nail polish.

I used three different sized gold glittery nail polishes. I applied them all with a bit of sponge. First layer was the finest tinniest gold glitter or rather shimmer. Then I added a bit bigger glittery spots and at the end I used irregular the biggest gold glittery parts. I also applied first layer of glitter the highest and slowly went down. The last glittery polish is concentrated only at the tips of my nails to give you that glitter ombre effect.

On my ring finger I applied metallic gold nail polish and I added those big gold particles of glitter to make it super sparkly. 

I did apply top coat, but only to the part where I applied glitter, because I wanted to leave my red nail polish still looking matte at the top.

The nail polishes I used:
  • Avon Nail Experts 5 in 1 Nail Treatment
  • Golden Rose Matte Nail Lacquer - 16
  • Essence LE Metal Glam Nail Polish - 04 Gold Digger
  • Essence Nail Art Special Effect Topper - 06 You're A Gold Mine
  • Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer - 41 Two Million Dollar Baby
  • Essence LE Merry Berry Top Coat - 01 My Golden Pumps
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Simple, but effective, as I like to call this manicure. It will get you noticed, but you'll look apart next to your Christmas tree. What is your favorite Christmas combination for nails?

  1. Kombinacija zlate in rdeče je res popolna za božič, včasih še z dodatkom zelene. Ful lepo. :)

    1. Tako je. Ja zelena je prav tako klasika - kot jelka :) Hvala :).

  2. Prekrasno <3 Čisto božično :) Sem imela zelo podobno kakšen teden nazaj, ampak je nisem slikala ker ni tako lepo izpadlo. Nimam pravih zlatih lakov, ampak pri tebi vidim, da imaš tudi samo omejene izdaje.

    1. Hvala :) <3 Ja žal res. Se mi zdi ful težko v naših drogerijah najt dobre zlate lak. Še zdaj iščem nek zlat lak, ki ne bi bil preveč rumen in ne preveč bronze.

  3. These look like the perfect Christmas nails. I LOVE the gold accent nail :)

    1. Thanks :) It can't be Christmas without some gold and glitter :D.
