Polish Post: Candy Cane Nails


I don't usually like posting nail polish posts one after the other, but I wanted to put this up in time for the holidays!


I did red with white stripes last year too, but was inspired by Syl and Sam's double-striped candy cane nails in one of their latest tutorials. Fairly easy, and the effect is fun and reminiscent of my favorite holiday candy. They look good enough to eat! ;D

Hard Candy's "Stop" (discontinued) | L.A. Colors Art Deco polish in white | Essie's "Golden Nuggets"

I used two coats of red polish, carefully painted diagonal white stripes, and finished with one coat of gold glitter for some sparkle (Essie's "Golden Nuggets"--just scored it from a white elephant gift exchange!).

What's on your nails?

Love this! I have been looking for a gold glitter polish for a few weeks now. I like OPI's Glitzerland, but now I want that Essie in Golden Nuggets! I adore your nail posts!
