My Christmas Manicure - Zoya Seraphina and Sinful Colors Holiday Rebel

Well hello polished world!  Hope you all had a very blessed Christmas!!!  Today I am bringing you the manicure that I wore Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!

I woke up the morning of Christmas Eve and realized that I had not used my bottle of Holiday Rebel by Sinful Colors yet.  I was kind of upset because when I purchased it, I had so many ideas as to how I could integrate this new red, green, and silver holo glitter polish with some really neat Christmas nail art designs.  Since I ended up getting sick, then later purchased nail art wheels, this polish slipped my mind and was lost in my Melmer.

I'm so happy though that I remembered it because I was able to create a simple, yet festive manicure that I completely enjoyed!  For the life of me, I cannot figure out why I don't do more manicures like this.

Let's take a look!




Colors Used
  • Zoya - Seraphina
  • Sinful Colors - Holiday Rebel
  • INM - Northern Lights
To get the look, I started off with a base coat of Sinful Colors Seraphina.  I used this polish once before in a simple manicure back when I received the Zenith Collection.  I liked the polish then, but I'm loving it more now.  It's more gorgeous than I remember.  It's really neat because it's a metallic polish that doesn't dry with that awful streaky foil finish like some metallic polishes do.  It's softer, and still gives you that pop of effect like you're used to with normal metallics.

I really wanted these nails to sparkle, so I added a thin coat of INM Northern Lights before the Sinful Colors polish.  This made the nails have a little extra dimension and shine.

Then I added Holiday Rebel, the gorgeous perfect Christmas glitter!  I have searched everywhere for a polish like this and am so happy to own it!  It has multi sized red and green glitters with larger silver holo pieces.  What I loved about this polish is the even coverage of the glitter.  I literally only went over my nail once with a decent amount of polish on the brush.  I didn't have to place any glitters either, they just all fell perfectly into place.



Look how pretty!  I wish I could capture how sparkly they really are.  You can kind of see on the pointer finger in the picture above how the silver piece catches the light and gives you the holo effect.  I remember when I purchased the bottle wishing that there were more of these silver pieces, but after applying the polish, I believe it had the perfect amount.

What do you think?  Suitable Christmas Eve and Day Manicure?

Now I am off to think of some New Years Eve nails!  I'm thinking more glitter?  Hmmmm.

Until next time, <3.
