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.
Now that nails have officially become the most inspiring canvases of the season, it’s time to test out a chic spring look of your own. One of our favorite nail art designs (above, left) combines a right-now hue, mint, with graphic black splashes that give your nails the perfect combination of ladylike polish and street-chic edge. Created by Los Angeles nail artist Madeline Poole for THE NEW BLACK, the “Robin’s Egg” manicure is three simple steps. Watch below and recreate the look at home with the Shibuya by Madeline Poole polish set.
