- Twinkle Toes in Perfect Match® Gel Polish or Dare to Wear Lacquer by LeChat

Before you Start:
Depending on what you prefer, you can create this look with either nail lacquer or gel polish. However, you’ll need to cure your nails with a nail lamp if you use gel polish!
Follow these steps:
1: First, apply the base coat.
2: Secondly, apply one coat of Twinkle Toes.
3: Thirdly, pour out Lilac Lux with Twinkle Toes spilled out next to it. Next, use a sponge and stamp the two shades directly onto the nails. This is an easy way to create an ombré look at home—no blending or brush needed.
4: Next, top with Glacial Dust Glitter Gel to add a holiday sparkle and to easily blend the two shades together.
5: Finally, finish off your look with our Mirano Top Coat to seal the design with a glossy shine.
Just like that, you’ll create a beautiful ombré nail design perfect for the holidays!
