We’re completely over the moon for this glittery gold french tip mani with a sprinkle of gold stars. It’s subtle enough for the day to day but sparkly enough for any festive parties you may have coming up.

You can never go wrong with a red, and this sparkly number is perfect for the Holidays. Paint the whole nail a glimmering ruby red, or opt for this ombre french variation for a little bit of sparkle and a whole lot of glam.

The festive season is the perfect time to experiment with nail art, and this is giving us total Christmas vibes. If you don’t want to commit to every nail touting a bold design, get inspired by this festive mani featuring plaid nail art on just a few digits. There’s just something about plaid that makes us feel all warm and cozy inside, like sitting in front of a warm fire with hot chocolate in our flannel PJs.

New Year’s Eve is the time to sparkle, and we think this is the perfect mani for that ultra glam dress you have picked out. We love a good nude nail because it goes with everything, and the crystals make it super festive. To get this look, use SNS Gelous NC 18 - Selena from the Nude Collection as your base and bedazzle your nails with crystals to your heart’s desire.  


Holiday Half-Moons

Half-moon manis, also known as the reverse french, have been trending lately and we love this chic take that’s perfect for the holidays. A red reverse french is elevated with a thin, metallic smile line. We’re obsessed.

We can’t think of a better way to get into the winter season than getting a snowflake mani. To recreate this look, ask your salon for SNS DOLO Instant Marble and choose a red to match. Top it off with the cutest snowflakes and you’re good to go. ‘Tis the season.
