New on Pinterest: Color of 2015: Marsala

Get ready to ring in the new year rich with color. We're exploring PANTONE's 2015 color of the year in our new Pinterest board "Color of 2015: Marsala". Warm and rich, like it's cousin colors garnet and burgundy, it has a lot of drama to lend to any project. Check out some our favorite marsala flavored pins:

Guest Blog Post: Christmas Tree Nails by Jennifer Strong of NeverTooMuchGlitter

In the giving spirit of the holiday season, we have a special gift for you! Our featured artist Jennifer Strong of NeverTooMuchGlitter has created another nail art tutorial for our blog readers! We're very thankful to Jen for continuing to share her wisdom in the ways of glitter with us. These festive nails would be a great way to glam up a holiday look for a special occasion. Continue reading to learn how to make your own 3D nail designs this holiday season:

The festive season is upon us! For those of us in the Christmas spirit, why not do a little holiday nail art to spread the good cheer? This easy-to-do nail art look is sure to bring a smile.

Paint the nails in a light metallic color of your choice. Let dry.

Paint on a long, thin triangle for your tree. You can use the traditional green, or go for any other color you like!

While the tree is still wet, drag the needle across in a wavy shape to add detail.

Now here's the fun part: Add your ornaments to the tree! You can press them into wet polish and seal with a topcoat, but a glue is a better choice for a longer lasting manicure. If you're using artificial nails, try a craft adhesive. For natural nails, try a dab of liquid nail glue.

 You can add a star on your tree with a metal stud, or try drawing one with a complimentary color of nail polish. 

You can add a tree on each nail, or do some quick and easy accent nails with your dotting tool. Some fun options are French tip, dots or stripes. It's up to you!

Thanks so much to Jen for creating this festive tutorial for last minute holiday glam and for sharing her wonderful designs with us! Be sure to check out NeverTooMuchGlitter for stunning nail art for all year long.
