Hello again lovelies! Don’t mind me while I sneak another quick post in for the night. This past Friday, everyone in the Nail Crazies Unite group posted their holiday movie inspired nails. I’m late to the party again, but still wanted to get my look up before the end of the weekend. So, let’s get to some Holiday In Handcuffs inspired nails!
Here is what I used:
This was by far one of the most difficult nail art themes for me haha. I’m not big into watching movies in general, so holiday movies are not something that I’m very familiar with. I’ve seen some of the classics before like Rudolph, Home Alone and even ELF (is that even a considered classic? I’m not a Will Ferrell fan, so I zoned out through most of it….) Anyways! While searching on Pinterest, I came across the DVD cover for the movie, Holiday in Handcuffs starring Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez. I have vague memories of watching this at a friend’s house, so I decided to run with it for this manicure!
- Start by applying your base polishes (I applied three coats of You’re A Green One and Aphrodite.)
- Then for the green nails, use a dotting tool to add on Aphrodite and Genesis. I found it easiest to place the larger, red circles first and then fill the gaps in with Genesis.
- For the accent nail, use a detail brush and acrylic paint to add on the handcuffs.
- Clean up.
- Finish with a layer of Glossy Glam.
I mentioned earlier that I wasn’t ready to start painting holiday manicures, and yeah, I’m still not ready. I rushed these so badly and ended up smearing some of my polka dots, so I’m a little bummed. But, I do like the look of You’re A Green One and Aphrodite paired together! I’ll be keeping this combination in mind for the future. Anyways, make sure to leave me a comment down below with your thoughts! Also, let me know what movie you would have chosen for this theme?
Thank you guys so much for reading and have a great night!
