This Holiday Nail Idea is so quick and easy it doesn't even need directions.
All you will need is two nail colors of your choice. My personal favorite is, one gem tone offset by a sparkly silver. It is a nice contrast between fire and ice, and gives off a festive contradiction.
Step 1: Paint entire nail with silver nail polish, and let dry.
Step 2: Paint (2nd Nail polish gem tone) over the silver one while leaving a silver border. Let dry.
Step 3: Finish off with too coat.
