Who better to go to for the perfect holiday mani than celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann (whose clients include A-listers like Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Jessica Parker)? Lippmann chose two of her luxe, seasonal hues and a hint of sparkle — available on Gilt — for our exclusive design. Follow the four easy steps below and you’ll be polished and ready for every occasion — including any last-minute invites.
- On clean, dry nails, apply a base coat and let dry two minutes. Then apply Flash Dance to the bottom half of your nails and let them dry for two minutes.
- Using Rolling In The Deep, paint two coats, leaving a half moon shape of Flash Dance at the base of your nail exposed. Wait two minutes between each coat.
- Brush out some I Love The Nightlife on a piece of tin foil. Using a dotting tool, pick up and place individual glitters on the edge of your nail to create a studded French tip.
- Apply top coat and wait two minutes to dry.
