‘Tis The Season To Sparkle

by: Melanie Murphy, Esthetician

Hello readers, Melanie Murphy here to show you how to add a little sparkle to your holiday manicure by matching up the perfect red to your nail shape. Here are three ways to do so:

1. My personal favorite is a squoval nail shape, which is straight across the top with rounded edges. This is the most durable nail shape you can have. OPI’s Can’t Read Without My Lipstick is a great tone and I’d even accent it with Sunrise…Bedtime.

2. Go bold or go home! To achieve a look that’s really going to grab attention, go with an almond shape and a bright cherry red shade. OPI’s Got The Means Red paired with a top coat of Champagne For Breakfast will give you that desired pop for the holidays.

3. For a holiday twist on the classic French look, change up your tip! OPI’s I’m Not Really A Waitress is a great option for the tip color and complimented with a line of Champagne For Breakfast just under the red to give it that added punch. If you have a shorter nail, a tip can give you an illusion that the nail is longer.

No matter your style, there is always a way to work some sparkle into your manicure. To keep your glitter going throughout the holiday season opt for a gel polish, use Dermalogica’s Hand and Nail Treatment for smoothness and don’t forget to wear gloves when cleaning.

Have a great holiday season xoxo
