Christmas Nail Ideas: How to Create Crystal Nails

Posted on 18th December 2015 by PROinsider
’Tis the season when salons and mobile stylists are high in demand, so it’s time to get creative with your styling to show your local clients that you’re both on top of the trends and constantly refreshing your menu.  

We’ve created a series of how-to videos for a little reminder of what the key trends are for this festive season. For the fourth installment, we’re showing you how to create nails for your rock-chic clients with an extra touch of bling. Christmas season is the time to rock a sequin-happy party dress, so nail art should be kept subtle to avoid clashing. Nail technician Carrie Jones has created the perfect edgy nail-art design, and if you click on the link below she’ll show you how to recreate the look on you and your clients…


1 Apply one coat of China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Liquid Leather.
2 Allow the nails dry for a couple of minutes.
3 Apply Morgan Taylor Mattes A Wrap Matte Top Coat.

4 Using Beauty Secrets Sticky Picky, apply the crystals in a triangle pattern at the cuticles. Act quickly before the top coat dries! However, if it does dry just apply another coat of top coat.

5 Repeat on the other hand

Carrie says: “Before you start, lay the crystals out onto the table to work quicker and cleaner.”
