12 MoC: Champagne, Dahling





Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats China Glaze Ravishing Dahling
5 Coats Spoiled Champagne Siren
1 Coat OPI Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

This is a super simple Holiday manicure! Accent manis are a great way to change up your look. I especially love throwing in an accent nail with a different color AND finish than the others.

China Glaze Ravishing Dahling is a gorgeous blood-red jelly. I'd expect to see a LOT of it during the Holiday season, because I'm kind of obsessed with how cheery it looks! Three coats brought my nails to the pretty shade you see in the pics above.

Spoiled Champagne Siren is quickly becoming one of my favorite glitter polishes. I'm constantly reaching for it to add sparkle to my layering manicures! After the 3rd coat of Champagne Siren, my tips just weren't as coated as I wanted them to be. My 4th coat was actually a quick dab on the tips, followed by a full 5th coat.

And another quick note on my accent nails... For whatever reason, I painted them with Ravishing Dahling and tried to layer the glitter on top and it looked awful. I had to clean the accent nails and start again. Simply layering the glitter polish gives a much cleaner finished look. I'm not sure why I always forget that!

I know this is a really simple manicure, but I'm really liking it for Christmas Eve or maybe even Christmas Day! What do you think?!?
