Winter wonderland mani (in ombre glitter, of course!)


 
We're obsessed with this winter wonderland mani sent over by Rana Daunis and Jesaka Brooks-Ausler. In ombre shades of blue and topped off with a coating of silvery white glitter, it's got us humming Blue Christmas out loud (sorry, fellow staffers!). Read on for the how-to:

1. Start with a clear base coat, and select three shades of the same color in different shades and a coordinating glitter topcoat. We used periwinkle, baby blue and royal blue with a sheer white glitter.
 

2. Using the darkest color, paint about halfway down your nail, with more emphasis on the tip of your nail.
 

3. With the middle color, overlap the darkest color and paint down to the bottom third of your nail. It should be a bit messy, but don't worry- the colors will blend together in the final step.
 

4. Now using the lightest color, fill in from the base of your nail until it overlaps the middle color. Once again, it's okay if it's a tad messy.
 

5. Cover your entire nail with the glitter polish. Allow it to dry and add another coat if necessary. You don't want to cover up the color completely, but add enough glitter that the colors appear blended underneath. 
 

6. Finish with clear top coat and voilà! Magical.

To make sure a fitted button down is the right size for you, check out the shoulder seams. If they hit right at the point where the slope of your shoulder begins, then you're good!
