Nail Art: Golden Sparkles for the Holidays

I know, I’m a little late for this one, but if you follow me on Instagram you saw this nail art back in December.

This is my second month with gel nails and I still love them. The best thing about them is I get to have beautiful nail art like this.

I had so many compliments on them too. A gold sparkle ombre is elegant for the holidays. Simple but extraordinary at the same time. I saw a lot of nail art over the holidays and while they were beautiful, they seemed a little too much. Maybe for an accent nail, but to do all my nails that way felt over-worked.

This was a simple application. Just clear (gel) polish, let partially dry, and then manually place sparkles on the nail. I didn’t do this either. My manicurist is incredible and she thought of this style too.

The gold sparkle goes with any outfit and it’s simple enough to go from work to party. If you have many social engagements over the holidays, you might want to think something simple like this for your nails.

This year I’m going to work on getting a few more tools. I have some great ideas for next year.
