I’m ready to welcome all the holiday parties, and now my nails are party-appropriate too, thanks to the help of my #1 manicurist. I’m calling this look The Julie Nail.
First, Julie applied two base coats of a deep wine.
Then, starting at about the center of the outside edge of each nail, we added a lighter shiny, upward-diagonal stripe in a similar hue.
We ended by layering on a slightly-smaller gold-diagonal stripe. The diagonal tip is 2014’s version of the French nail…it’s dominating the style scene.
For a professional, finished look, Julie recommends adding some additional gold to the end of your nails. Then polish everything with a clear top coat.
This trio of colors gives your nails holiday pizzazz in a sophisticated way. A girl can wear this into the office, and then throw on her sequin gown for a holiday romp. Either way, she’ll be in vogue:)
