Hi guys! It’s that time of the week again and I’ve got another festive manicure for you today. In the attempting to be festive spirit, I’ve done a candy cane accent nail. This was quite easy to achieve and I really like the simplicity of it, but yet, it looks impressive (or at least I think so).
OPI Chip Skip
OPI Nail Envy Maintenance (1 coat)
OPI Haven’t the Foggiest (2 coats)
OPI Chick Flick Cherry (1 coat – accent nail, stripes)
OPI Gettin’ Miss Piggy With It (1 coat – accent nail, centre stripe)
OPI Don’t Mess With OPI (1 coat – accent nail, stripes)
Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat (1 coat before stripes, 1 additional coat after stripes on accent nails)
To do this manicure, I applied my base products as usual and then did two coats of my silver polish (OPI Haven’t the Foggiest) followed by my top coat. Once I was absolutely sure that my nail polish was completely dry, I applied striping tape so that I could make my red stripes. This took six pieces per nail. When I was done with the red, I felt like the stripes were too far apart and added in the green stripes. For this, I just used a striping brush and free-handed them. If I could go back, I’d just free-hand the two smaller red stripes.
Overall, I’m in love with this manicure! I find the candy cane accent so striking. I’m continuing to think of a few more festive manicures that I can do for the holiday season.
