Ice Cold Nails

Written by: Barrie Ladipo

We are gearing up for the most busiest season of the year- winter. And with winter coming, the holidays are getting closer, and the cold. Brrrrrr. But, that can stop our fashion train. We always know how to keep up with the jones when it comes to looking our best. This season has introduced many trends for our manicures giving the french manicure a break- just for now.

Metallics are finally in, maybe trending because of Star Wars, and they aren’t your regular silver and gold. From your bold violet sparkle to your opalescent emerald glitter, your manicure would be a guaranteed conversation starter. Maybe the life of the party, but no promises.

For those who love designs, global color ambassador for Sally Hansen, Madeline Poole stirred up some snow-globe-inspired nail looks. The team up of cool white and sparkle that can definitely be added to an accessory must have for the season. But with all these fun options, make sure you switch them. Nothing better than to keep shining though your nails.

1. Start with a coat of clear polish, preferably a dry matte.

2. Once dry, use hole- reinforcement stickers as stencils. Apply one to the base of each nail to cover the natural arc (or moon), which should remain clear. Paint two coats of white (Madeline utilized Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Get Mod, $10) from the top of the sticker all the way to the nail tip.

 3. Let polish dry for 7-10 full minutes, then remove the stickers and paint iridescent glitter over the clear moons.
