Winter manicures have become increasingly popular in the past few years, especially among the younger generation.
As with any other trend, you need to know the history behind each style.
Let’s go back to the days when we had our own ’90 to ’01 ’02 manicures.
We’re all nostalgic about the good old days, when the manicure looked like this: This is a 1940s-era style.
The basic formula for a winter beauty routine is the same.
You need to get the right shades of colour, apply a nice layer of frosty lip balm, then wear a black or brown topcoat for extra glamour.
We’re talking about the classic look here.
If you’re looking to make your own winter manicures, we recommend checking out the following: Here’s what you need: The basics: You’re going to need: 1/2 oz (50g) of your favorite liquid nail polish, such as Dior’s Nail Pop (sold at your local drugstore), Benefit’s Aqua Pearl, and MAC’s The Beauty Line.
1/2 tsp (10ml) of essential oil or fragrance.
2-3 drops of your favourite hair colour.
3-4 drops of nail varnish or colour.
Apply to dry nails with your fingers or a brush.
This is your basic winter manicuring recipe.
You can buy a bottle of nail polish in bulk online or at a drugstore.
Here is a quick, step-by-step guide to how to make the basics:Step 1: Apply the liquid nail polishes.
Make sure to get 1/4 oz (45g) and 1/3 oz (40g) each in your nail polish cabinet.
This will give you enough to apply to your nails and your skin.
Step 2: To get your topcoat, you’re going get a small bowl.
You’ll want to find something small enough to fit your nails.
I like to use a plastic shopping bag or a small box to get my topcoat.
Step 3: Now, it’s time to get your eyeshadow and highlight.
I find that using a good brush and a little glitter will go a long way.
It will also help with your nail color.
I usually use a small shimmering brush, but if you’re a more traditional person, you could opt for a little bit more glitter.
Step 4: After your base colour is applied, add a little more glitter to the topcoat to get it all mixed and glossy.
If you’re using a big brush, add more glitter on top.
I usually go for two coats of nail gloss to get all the polish in the shade.
Step 5: Add a little sparkle to the whole topcoat by adding more glitter, then applying a thin coat of nail lacquer to seal it all in.
If the whole thing looks a little messy, just add a few drops of lip colour to the end of the top coat.
Step 6: Finish the look by applying a small amount of colour to your nail.
You can add a sparkle or two to the base colour to add a bit of extra sparkle, but it’s usually best to add the entire topcoat or a couple of coats to your skin to get that extra sparkles.
When you’re done, you’ll be ready to take on the world.
