I haven't done very many holiday nail looks this season, but one thing I can always make time for is a little glitter to feel festive! I have a few looks I pulled from the vault to share with you today.
It took me a while to appreciate mixing holos and glitters, but I love this combination. The deep purple plays so well with the pink, turquoise, and purple glitters! A great thing about a glitter tip or gradient is that it looks great on every length of nail, and you can put on as much or as little as you like, from a narrow tip to the whole nail. And, it's easy to do on both hands!

This is a layered look, but with the glitter on the top (near the cuticle) of the nail. The base is a dark blue holo, with bright cobalt blue and silver glitter dabbed on. It's a complex look for very little effort!

Here's another unusual gradient with the dark color on the top, and the lighter, sheer color on the bottom. I'm not completely sold on this look, but I do love the colors and shimmers together. No bottle shot for this one - the sheer white with iridescent shimmer is Everybeauty Boutique Frosty Freeze, and the purple is Different Dimension Orchid You Not.
The last look I have for today is a little more complicated, but makes for a great holiday look. After applying the base red polish, I did a freehand chevron with the purple. The green glitter covered up any mistakes, and then I used the gold topcoat over everything. The more bling, the better, I say.
