Holly Nail Art with China Glaze The Glam Finale Collection

Press Sample


Greetings, dear readers, and TGIF! I'm checking in with my first holiday nail art design this season! I've been a little distracted with everything else going on this month, but I figured I better get started with the nail art if I actually want to create some this month. I have a few more ideas in mind, and while I suspect I won't get to create all of them, I'm hoping to get at least two more designs on my nails and posted.


For today's blog post, I wanted to share with you my freehand holly nail art look utilizing shades from the new China Glaze The Glam Finale Collection. I actually had attempted a similar type design using stamping plates, but the red and green shades I used here are matte polishes that just dried too quickly. Of course I didn't take that into consideration with freehand painting either. The super quick dry time is great for solid nails, but I'm not a fan when it comes to trying to manipulate it for art. In the end, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.


I used the following shades from the China Glaze The Glam Finale Collection to create this look:

Toast It Up!
Big Hair & Bubbly
Santa's Side Chic
The Perfect Holly-Day

I hope you've enjoyed today's nail art look! Enjoy the weekend!
XO!

  11. Cute sprigs of holly! I can understand the struggle of trying to make quick-drying polishes work for nail art, but given how impatient I am for polish to dry, I would prefer wearing really fast-drying polish!
