RED GOLD TIPS LIST

Festive French Tips

If you’re the type of person who starts listening to Christmas songs the day after Halloween, this is the manicure for you.

EVERGREEN TIPS LIST

Evergreen Half-Dip

A nude and forest green mani will look especially crisp against your cozy knits.

GLITTER BORDER LIST

Glitter Lining

If a full on glitter mani feels excessive, try a simple (but no less glitzy) border instead. 

GOLD BRUSHSTROKES LIST

Metallic Brushstrokes

Snow white nails meet gilded brush strokes.

MIXED MEDIA NAILS LIST

Mixed Mediums

Vary the colors and textures, but stick to a consistent theme to keep things fresh, but still streamlined. 

GOLD STRIPING LIST

Thin Gold Lines

Prefer to DIY? All you need to create this chic design is a little striping tape, some emerald green polish and a (somewhat) steady hand.

FLOATING MANI LIST

Floating Manicure

A sliver of negative space at the base of your nails elevates a basic metallic mani (and allows for the smoothest grow out).

SWOOPED LINES LIST

Swooped Lines

Prefer something more understated? A curved black (or navy blue) line dresses up your nails without competing with any of your cocktail attire or jewelry.
