BEAUTY | Silver Christmas Garland Manicure
Christmas decorations in all the shops and department stores can get pretty tiring.
Ripping them out of their context and finding new purposes for them is much more fun!
Start of by painting your nails in any color and let it dry, I reckon that it'll also work well with black. Then cut off the thin strips from the garland. (no need to have such an OCD like me and place them all in a row like that) Apply a layer of top coat and place the thin silver foil strip on the nail with your tweezers. You can still move around the strip on the clear topcoat without smudging the color underneath. Let it dry and cut off the bits that are too long and are sticking out. Finish off with another layer of top coat. I will definitely stock up on bits of silver, gold, colored christmas decorations. Can't wait to experiment some more and applying them diagonally, horizontally, multiples, possibilities are endless!
