Here are some ideas for cute Christmassy nails. They're great for winter as well!
Christmas Sweater (not really sure what to call the 2 designs :P) This might be a bit harder, so you should probably have a friend help out your left hand! So like the first 2 pics, paint a base coat (white, or red) Then, using a nail pen or brush, paint the designs you see on sweaters (like flowers, hearts, zig-zags, reindeer, stripes, dots). Use black, white (or off-white), and red for the theme!
Candy Cane; Super easy, just paint on a white or off-white base coat, and paint some red stripes. You can use sparkly colors to make it glam! Remember to add a base coat.
Snowflake; This one is super cute. Paint a pastel colored base coat (I prefer pink, lavender, or mint), and add snowflake nail decals while the nails are still lightly wet. Make sure you place it well because you don't want to mess up your base coat!. Add a clear top coat to seal it up.
Snowy Night; Paint a opaque white base coat and let it dry. Then paint some metallic blue polish at the base in a semi-circle shape. Add sparkles at the edge of the semi-circle, like in the picture. Then carefully place some rhinestones (blue/clear). Add a base coat and you're done!
Here's a guide to whenever you decide to go on a shopping spree at the mall, or simply want to try on clothes with your friends!
O1. Make a plan of which stores you will go to! Try to make a list of the stores you like on your phone or something. This will make it waayyyy easier than just wandering around the mall until you find a store you like. Sometimes I like to make a list of what I want to buy that day (eg. scarves, leopard print, high-low skirts, etc.)
O2. Before you leave your house, make sure you have everything you need in your bag! (eg. cash, keys, cards, tampons, etc.) Try using a shoulder bag because it will make your trip much easier! It allows you to have your hands free so you won't worry about losing your purse! Also, think about bringing some snacks like granola bars so you get some quick energy to fuel you throughout the day!
O3. Dress comfortably! Since you will be trying on clothes, wear simple skinny jeans and a black tank. This way, you can try on tops that might have cut-outs or low collars, and see how they look with normal jeans. Also, tanks usually pair well with any types of skirts (eg. pencil, high-waisted, etc.)
O4. Wear flats! With flats you can slip off your shoes quickly, without doing any laces and you can get through jeans or skirts much faster! They are also much more comfortable than heels! Wear just a simple pair that could go with just about anything.
O5. And have fun! Bring a lot of your friends with you so you have someone to take silly pictures with you in the dressing rooms and simply be together with :) Bring a camera to capture all your best moments and just let loose and relax!
