Christmas Sparkle

First, apply maroon nail polish to all your nails, except the nail on the ring finger. Make your nail art look exceptional by applying golden glitter nail polish on that nail. Second, give your mani some holiday glitz by applying the golden glitter nail polish on the tips of your nails to create an ombre effect. Apply this glitter on your middle finger and thumb. You can also use a makeup sponge to apply the glitter so that it doesn’t look overdone. Third, for the index and little fingers, take a thin nail striper, dip it in white nail paint, and draw two horizontal lines just below the tips of your nails. Lastly, apply a clear top coat to seal the design.

Reindeer Nail Art

First, apply bright red nail polish to all your nails. Then, make a half reindeer head from a brown nail polish to the middle finger. Make sure your red nail polish is all dry to avoid them being mush together. Third, draw the eyes, mouth, and the antlers of the reindeer. Next, apply black nail polish to the outer part of the reindeer’s face. Lastly, apply a clear top coat to smooth the picture over.

Green and Gold French Tips

First, paint on two coats of a deep blue-green polish. Second, using a thin striper brush dipped in gold metallic polish, start from one side of your nail and paint a small line along the free edge, stopping halfway across your nail. Third, using the same brush and polish, finish the line by starting from the other side of your nail. Connect the two lines in the middle. Last, finish with a clear, glossy topcoat to seal the edges of the two polishes together.

  • Vinegar
  • Lemon Juice

How To Remove Nail Polish With Vinegar

  1. Soaking the nails in warm water for 10-15 minutes before removing the nail polish can help to speed up the process.

  3. Stir the mixture, soak a cotton ball in it, press it onto your fingernails, and hold it for 10-20 seconds. This causes the nail enamel to dissolve and removes all the remnants of nail polish.
  4. Then use the cotton ball to wipe the polish off. It might take a little longer to remove the nail paint if there are several coats.
  5. Don’t forget to moisturize or apply nail oil afterward.
