Hello from Adventures in Polishland! Zenorah has kindly asked to feature a guest post from me, and I am excited to share some of my tips and tricks with all of you, her readers. My blog has always been dedicated to fabulous and affordable nails. Today I will show you how I use holiday themed nail polishes throughout the year to really get the most for my money. There is no reason you can’t enjoy a Halloween or Christmas nail polish during more than one season! Feel free to get those red and green polishes for the holiday without worrying about them siting in your collection until the next year rolls around. Let me share with you some simple manicures that put your holiday polishes to good use!
First up is a neon manicure that is perfect for summer and easily incorporates a green, glow-in-the-dark pumpkin polish! While these pumpkin polishes are perfect for Halloween, the neon green color is right on trend for this season as well. I thought a neon skittle with a cloud accent nail would be really fun, so I grabbed Did I Dye It Too Blonde? and Plastic Flamingo, both from Spoiled, to complete the look. First, I painted all of my nails with a white nail polish to ensure the neon colors really popped. Then, once the white base was completely dry, I painted my nails with the neon colors. For the accent nail, simply follow the instructions HERE. Three simple brushstrokes create a cool, cloud effect. Make sure you let each layer dry completely so you don’t smudge the polish. Finish up with your favorite top coat, and you’re ready for summer!
As you can see, it is easy to use your holiday themed polishes during any season with a little patience and imagination. These nail art techniques are very easy to recreate, and can work with a variety of polish colors and formulas. I want to ensure I get the most for my money with every polish that I purchase, and the same goes for the holiday ones! I hope you enjoyed these manicures, and perhaps you learned a little something along the way, too. Be sure to stop by my blog Adventures in Polishland for more fabulous and affordable nails!
