easiest holiday mani ever!

When it comes to holiday nails, everyone always thinks red! But I wanted to try something a little different and a little fun with my holiday mani using two of my fave reds from Essie. This mani is so easy & people will think it took you a lot longer than it did (which let’s face it, that’s an added bonus that we can all get behind this time of year!)

You’ll need;
A nude or sheer base, I used opi’s bubble bath
Two different shades of red, I used shall we chalet? and altitude attitude both by essie

1-Apply your base color in a sheer layer. *tip; always wash and dry your nails before applying any color. This helps so much!

2-Next go in with one of the colors starting under the white part of your nail and working across in the an upward motion, making a long triangle. 

3-Then use the other color and work in the opposite direction! I repeated steps 2 & 3 again to get an even, opaque shade.

4-Finish with a top coat-I ONLY use Seche Vite fast dry (get it on amazon-I buy 4 a year, one a season!)

If you recreate this mani, use hashtag; #thelayzblondenails so I can see! Let me know what color you’re rocking on your nails in the comments! 


  1. I never do my nails because they get ruined almost immediately but these look so easy and cute!

    1. Tip for that; make sure you aren't putting the polish on too thick. Most of the time that's the issue cause they feel dry, but haven't settled, xo!

  2. This is so cute and creative! I will have to try it out!!
