Well, at least you have the holiday lacquer collections to look forward to. This year instead of releasing just one set, like last year’s glittery Holiday Bling, CND is introducing three seasonal nail style kits. Each one is tailored to meet all your holiday nail needs and comes with a free gift and nail style guide. To see the actual packaging, check out my Holiday Preview post.
The Glamour kit includes Ruby Red and Deep Velvet polishes and a set of clear rhinestones.
CND suggests using this kit to create a modified french with Deep Velvet at the base and Ruby Red on the tip. Add a rhinestone along the smile line and cuticle and you’ve got one daring and bold style that is sure to be noticed. The look is more than I could pull off but for a day, who cares. It’s only polish, it’s not a tattoo.
The Festive kit includes Hollywood, Black Platinum lacquers and a bonus gift of glitterosity, Mother of Pearl.
Mother Of Pearl
The look for this set is a nail art design of red and silver poinsettias on a glittering backdrop. Way too crafty for my meager nail painting skills. If anyone recreates this or something similar, I’d love to see it.
The Count Down kit includes Smooch and Pucker Up lacquers with a gift of Air Dry top coat.
The look for the Count Down kit is more subdued than the others. This is a more festive take on a traditional french manicure with Pucker Up’s jelly finish as a base color and Smooch adding glitz to the tips.
