Christmas Nails 2014

I have been planning to wear this red polish at Christmas for months.  Does that sound crazy?  It's such a perfect red color and I actually bought it to wear last year but never got around to it.  This is the NYC quick dry formula, which I think makes a multi-step manicure much easier.  I used the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener as a base coat, then I put on one coat of the red.  The glitter in this Deborah Lippmann polish is a mix of tons of tiny silver and then some larger white glitter pieces.  I put two thin coats of that on to make sure that I got some of the big pieces on each nail.  I think it kind of looks like snow.  I used the Sally Hansen one as a top coat too because I couldn't find an actual top coat.  My nail polish collection is kind of a mess right now.  I felt like a top coat was important this time because I wanted the glitter to really stay put and I also would like this manicure to last through Friday, which will be a total of four days.
