The Perfect Holiday Red Mani

If you are looking for the perfect shade of red for your next holiday party, you’ve come to the right place! This week in the blog, we are going to share how to achieve the perfect red mani inspired by the chic red chrome mani as seen on Selena Gomez at the VMAs this year.

Prep Your Cuticles

Before applying any nail lacquer to your nails, it is important to prep your nails and cuticles! Start by applying Melt Away Cuticle Exfoliator around the cuticles and nail beds. Wait for approximately 60 seconds, then use our Signature Glass Cuticle Pusher 2-in-1 Cuticle Perfector to gently push back the cuticles. Wipe off the residue with a Nail Scrubber 2-in-1 Prep & Lacquer Remover Wipe to help hydrate nails and cuticles with conditioning Vitamin E and soothing Aloe for a perfectly prepped and polished look.

Trim and File Your Nails

Next, trim and file your nails to your desired nail shape. We recommend using our Signature Nail Clippers Premium Stainless Steel Tool to trim the nails with ultimate precision. These Premium Stainless Steel Tool nail clippers feature a durable, easy-to-clean stainless steel curved edge for easy manicures and maintenance! File and shape nails with our Signature Glass Nail File Gentle Precision Filing to help smooth out rough edges and prevent nail breakage and splitting.

Apply A Base Coat and Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer

Now that nails are prepped and ready, it’s time for nail lacquer! Start by applying a coat of Horse Power Nail Rescue Basecoat to each nail to help protect nails against future nail damage and help prevent nail breakage and let dry. Next, apply one to two coats of Knees Up Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer for a shimmery red mani.

Finish with a Top Coat and Cuticle Oil

To help elongate the wear time of your festive red manicure, apply a layer of Hardwear Shine UV Topcoat to give your nails a brilliant high shine, smudge-free finish, and let dry. Finish off this manicure by applying our conditioning Quick Slip Revitalizing Nail & Cuticle Oil with Coconut Oil to help protect, replenish, and strengthen the look of cuticles while promoting overall nail health.
