Adorned in Baubles

This holiday manicure will have you feeling festive in no time

November 25, 2013


From runway inspirations to one-of-a-kind designs, our picks are sure to keep you up on your nail game while giving you the 411 on how to recreate many of the looks yourself. This week, we caught up with @Cgoldnglam for her bejeweled manicure

The Trend: Who says fall manicures have to be mute? Glitz and glam has a place in each and every season, especially the holidays. What we love most about this luxe mani is the mixed media effect of the nail baubles and holographic glitter. Check out the details below!

EBONY: How did you create this design?

Editor’s Note: This design was created using gel polish.  Feel free to recreate the look using your favorite shades and a high shine top coat like Seche Vite Quick Dry Top Coat ($9.99; Ulta.com).

Cgoldnglam: I first painted the base colors blush pink, gold glitter, and powder green. I then placed the glitter design on the blush pink nails using a striping brush. Afterwards, I added studs and Opal Swarovski crystals. The finishing touch was adding the crystal cluster and gel top coat.

EBONY: What trend would you like to see stick around?

Cgoldnglam: I love the stiletto nail trend and neon colors for a pop of fun. And, of course, the embellished accent nail trend.

EBONY: Who is your favorite "Nail Icon" at the moment?

Cgoldnglam: My favorite "Nail Icon" is Regina Rodriguez. Her work is impeccable!
