The fresh­est ways to do nail art RN.

Hol­i­day nail art that doesn’t scream “’tis the sea­son.”

Elle (Canada) - - Insider -

Eschew the ob­vi­ous nail art this sea­son (huge chunks of glit­ter, candy-cane stripes, Drake wear­ing a Santa hat) and go for some­thing just as fes­tive (and that you don’t have to re­move be­fore go­ing to the of­fice). How? Geo­met­ric shapes and jewel tones. “They’re luxe and very glam with­out look­ing like you’re headed to a princess party,” says Leeanne Col­ley, celebrity man­i­curist and owner of Tips Nail Bar in Toronto. The num­ber one mis­take peo­ple make when go­ing for a man­i­cure is wait­ing un­til they get to the salon to show the man­i­curist what they want. “You can take screen­shots when you see nail art you love and show us dur­ing your ap­point­ment, but if it’s some­thing that looks more ad­vanced, let us know upon book­ing so we set aside the ap­pro­pri­ate amount of time,” says Col­ley. The above looks, which were de­signed ex­clu­sively for ELLE Canada by Tips, take any­where from 20 to 30 min­utes to achieve.
