Good morning! I couldn't wait to jump into holiday manis and I am so pleased with how this one turned out! I don't want to waste any time with jibber jabber so let's just jump right in. This is my candy cane mani and I used Lumina Lacquer, Orly and Smitten Polish to create this. Here are the social media and shipping links to the brands.
I started this super holiday mani with Lumina Lacquer Coal In My Stocking. Even though this polish is meant for those who "weren't very nice this year" I was nice but I'm still going to rock Coal In My Stocking because it's fabulous! This is an "opaque charcoal grey polish with a dash of micro holo glitters, some holo hexs, dark flakes and a soft holo pigment." It's so beautiful. My favorite part is the soft red-gold shimmer and the holo glitters. I used 2 thin coats (but you could easily get away with 1) for full coverage. Then I covered Coal In My Stocking with Lumina Lacquer Candy Cane Lane. Candy Cane Lane is a "glitterbomb of red and white with circles, hexs, stars, hearts and candy canes." It so fun! I got all of those shapes out with no digging. I used 2 coats. The glitter applied easily and spread well on my nails. On my accent nail I used 2 coats of Orly Au Champagne, a gorgeous frosty white with a soft matte finish. I then used a striping brush to create candy cane stripes with Smitten Polish Zelda's Fall-ly, a beautiful red holo (I posted a review for it HERE). I used 2 layers of topcoat on all nails to finish.
