When it comes to holiday nail art, the possibilities are endless. We see countless cute snowmen, Santa Clauses and just about any sort of holiday symbols being crafted on nails as we scroll through Instagram this time of year. But sometimes, playing with the colors of the season is a fun yet professional way to feel festive. This red and gold holiday manicure from Essie fits that perfectly. Here's the how-to:

  1. Apply a thin layer of Here to Stay base coat.
  2. Apply Million Mile Hues to each nail.
  3. Using Hear Me Aurora, paint the tip of the nail, leaving a half moon of gold underneath.
  4. Seal with Speed.Setter top coat.
