Bright red square nails are sure to pop, especially when you add a sparkly gold nail or two. On a few of the red nails, try your hand at drawing on silver scenery like Christmas trees or snowmen.

To be ready for the holidays, choose bright red for long squoval nails. Use silver glitter to dress up the ends and bright white to draw large snowflakes with a jewel for the center.


9. Red and Silver Snowflake Nails

It’s easy to get these shiny red Christmas nails. Just color half the tips with glittery silver, draw a thin white line for border, then add tiny white snowflakes and dots on just the accent nails!


10. Dark Red with Silver Tips

Define the curved edge of round or almond nails by first painting them dark red, then defining the tips with a solid silver. The solid tips will make the nails, and consequently your fingers, look longer.
