The holiday season is right around the corner and Creative Play™, a new traditional lacquer line by CND, has launched its first collection fittingly called Celebration. As the ultimate fashion accessory, nails are fun and easy to dress up to be bold, colorful and daring. Creative Play™ Nail Lacquer makes it easy to create many festive looks. Here are a couple of fabulous ideas from the Celebration collection.

Blue Ornament

Unleash your inner snow queen with this frosty, winter wonderland style. No snow outside? No problem. A white base coat, followed by blue swirls and topped with a shimmery turquoise locks winter onto your fingertips.

  1. Apply one coat of Creative Play™ Base Coat and allow it to dry.
  2. Apply two coats of Creative Play™ in I Blanked Out to nails and allow them to dry.
  3. Using Turquoise Tidings, apply to the cuticle area in an arch, leading toward the bottom right edge, in the same shape.
  4. Using a detail brush and Turquoise Tidings, paint thin lines over I Blanked Out, and I Blanked Out over Turquoise Tidings, following the same shape.
  5. Apply Creative Play™ Top Coat and allow it to dry.

Festive Triangles

While Christmas colors are traditionally green and red, these two are difficult to pull off together. Opt for a more metallic selection of burgundies and golds to elicit an elegant, rich holiday vibe.

  1. Apply one coat of Creative Play™ Base Coat and allow it to dry.
  2. Apply two coats of Creative Play™ in Naughty Or Vice to nails and allow to dry.
  3. Using Foiled Again and Rsvplum, paint random triangles.
  4. Using a detail brush paint thin lines across nails in Foiled Again and Naughty Or Vice.
  5. Apply Stellarbration to the entire nail to add a splash of sparkle.
