Christmas Manicures - China Glaze Cranberry Splash & Tinsel Town

Hi loves! How are you tonight? Ready for another Christmas Manicures post?

Today I am showing you a manicure I wanted to try for a while now, both the color combo and the tape design. The color combo was inspired by a post from Nailside, she used a red creme with China Glaze Tinsel Town and I loved the looks of that. I also saw this pretty V-shaped tape manicure over at work / play / polish so I combined these 2 to the manicure I am showing you right now!

I started with a base of 2 coats of China Glaze Cranberry Splash. I showed you this earlier here. After it dried, I taped up some nails with a V-shape, my thumb and ringfinger with the point towards my cuticles and the indexnails with the point towards the tip of the nail.

I painted 1 coat of China Glaze Tinsel Town over this and pulled away the tape carefully. Some topcoat to soften the edges and smooth the glitter and this was done! Quite easy but with great results. The grey/silver glitter stood out so pretty against the metallic red base.

Do you like to do tape manicures? Would you wear this for Christmas? I definitely would, sexy and festive at the same time!
