Start off your purple holiday nails by applying two coats of dark purple nail polish on your nails.

2. Apply nail tape

Now, to get the gold stripes even and polished, it’s best to use nail tape for this step.

Wait until your nails are completely dry and then cut off some strips of nail tape. Apply them diagonally, on the top side of the nails, as shown.

4. Remove the tape

Once you’ve applied glitter nail polish to one nail, remove the tape immediately, so that the tape doesn't get stuck to the nail when the polish dries. Then, repeat steps 3 and 4 on your other nails. 

Tip: Remove the tape with a pair of tweezers.

I absolutely love these purple Christmas nails. They are so beautiful and I think they work well with just about any nail length or shape. They remind me of a gift wrapped in purple wrapping paper, tied with a gold ribbon, or a rich "berries and cream" Christmas dessert!
