Holiday Nails!


Hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas holiday (if you celebrate Christmas), otherwise hope you are having a wonderful day!

Let's see what's on my nails for the holiday:

Over my usual base coat, I have 3 coats of Wet 'n Wild's MegaLast (old formula) in Caught Red Handed.  This must be a jelly finish because even after 3 coats on some of my nails I can still see my nail line.    I followed this up with a coat of Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Diamond Flash top coat since I wanted to move quickly on to the next step.
Caught Red Handed is so shiny!  If you don't have it, I noticed that Sinful Colors GoGo Girl is pretty much identical, and I'm sure there are lots more red creme polishes out there.

After that was dry, I used China Glaze's Glitter All the Way from the holiday 2012 collection as a gradient coming down from the tops of my nails.  So pretty!  My nails look like they could be Christmas ornaments.
Glitter All the Way has several colors of glitter in 2 sizes all in a clear base.  The 2 dominant glitter colors are gold and green, with some purple and red thrown in for more glittery goodness.  This pretty worked perfectly for applying a gradient with the brush - no special sponge or technique needed.  I don't remember if I saw this polish layered over a red or not, but I do know that I love it over red.  And gradients and glitter gradients seem to be quite the thing now, and I can see why.  So easy and so pretty and festive without a whole lot of skill involved.

What other colors would you layer Glitter All the Way over?  Or would you build it up to wear on its own?
