Mani of the Week: Candy Cane Nails

I'm getting into the holiday spirit with an upcoming holiday party this week. Decided to give candy cane nails a try. Very festive!

What I used:

Essie's Marshmallow, Cina's Red Nail Art Pen

Step 1: Start with a base coat. I went with white since my white nail art pen is out of order. You can start with a red base. I used Essie's Marshmallow.

Step 2: Apply stripes. I think they look better with a little more space between them.

Step 3: It wouldn't be Kim without a little glitter so I added a gold stripe. It is also a good way to hide any flaws (ie pinky finger). Unfortunately, the nail polish was really dried out. Add it to the list!

Not cleaned up but VOILA!

What's on your nails this week?
