When it comes to holiday style, we here at Brit + Co. leave no stone unturned. How could we possibly serve up holiday nail art inspiration without getting on the action right here? We teamed up with TopCoat to deck out all the ladies in the office for our holiday party, and they were kind enough to share some of their new nail art tricks for this holiday season. Presenting one awesome geometric gold mani and our new favorite nail art concept ever: SNOMBRE! (Aka snow plus ombre — genius, right?!)
Oh and guess what? If you’re in New York or San Francisco, these TopCoat geniuses will give you 20 percent off your first appointment. Just use the code BRITCO!
Now, onto that nail art!
We’ll kick things off with Snombre!
Paint a base coat in a dark color. We went with navy. Then take a sheer white polish and layer starting about two thirds down the nail, moving up. Now you’ve got an ombre nail, so it’s time to bring in the snow! Use a white glitter polish with big chunks of glitter to add the snow, moving from the top down.
Top the whole thing off with a top coat, and you’re sure to be the belle of any holiday ball.
Next up, a gorgeous geometric gold design.
The key here is to use a separate nail art paintbrush that’s much thinner than the one that comes with your polish. Start by painting a base coat of gold. Then, get a super opaque white to create your design. A steady hand is definitely in order for this one! Paint stripes on the nail and create any pattern you like.
Again, seal the deal with a top coat and you’re ready to party.
What? That’s right. Two manis, one person. Done and done! (See also: One Brown Hand.)
And here’s a shot of all the manis — can you spot the Grinch? ;)
