Candy cane nails are perfect for the holidays!Intricate nail art is a huge trend that's been showing up on runways, fashion spreads and beauty websites. Because anything goes as far as design, women everywhere are finding nail art to be a fun way to spruce up their look. If you want something special for the holidays, why not try out candy cane nails?

All you need to create this festive manicure is a bright red nail polish, like Nailtini – Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer in Bloody Mary. After applying a base coat, paint on two thin layers of the red color. When that's dry, use a white nail polish pen to create diagonal stripes across your nails. You may want to vary the thickness of some to make them look authentic.

Once your stripes are dry, be sure to finish with a top coat, like BABOR – Base & Top Coat. If you want to show off a little extra holiday spirit, you could always infuse a bit of sparkle. Whether you incorporate a glitzy stripe or paint your nails with shimmer all over, your nails will be the talk of your holiday bash.
