This Santa Hat Manicure Is a Major Holiday Mood

Santa’s coming to town in just a few short weeks, so obviously we have to get our nails Christmas ready. In years past, we’ve just popped on some red or green polish, but this season, we want to step up our holiday spirit. To take things to the next level, we’re bringing you a Mani Monday tutorial (check out our series on Instagram!) that’s so good, even Scrooge will be obsessed. Ahead, find a step-by-step guide to creating the ultimate Santa hat accent nail

STEP #1: Apply a Base Coat 

Nothing puts us in a jolly mood quite like the perfect red. After applying Essie Here to Stay Base Coat, polish your nails with Essie Fishnet Stockings. Try and make your strokes as even as possible. The color is pretty opaque, so you shouldn’t need more than one coat. Make sure to leave your ring finger polish-free — it’s going to be your accent nail.
