You know why I love the holidays? It’s open glitter season. It’s the one time a year grownups can rock bejeweled headbands, rose gold sequin dresses and glitter nails without anyone saying, “You know, you might be too old for that.” All bets are off. As Hannah says, “Sparkles for everyone!”
And here’s a sparkly look I’m currently obsessed with: ombre glitter nails. I rocked them at our Home for the Holidays photo shoot with HGTV’s Design Happens. (Catch up on all the posts here.) Technically, it’s just a gradient. And it’s the easiest nail art you’ll ever do.

I love pairing the gold glitter with a sheer nude base coat. It creates a subtle sparkle that you can dress up for parties without overshadowing your jewelry and accessories. But if you want to amp it up, you can create a more saturated gradient with additional layers like my Effie Trinket nails for The Hunger Games. Just use red or green for the base coat.
Oh and that stick I’m holding in the photo? That’s cotton candy Marianne Canada made for our party. Chai cotton candy. With edible gold stars. Is there anything she can’t do? Recipe coming soon on HGTV’s Crafternoon!
