My husband wanted me to do something super festive for his office holiday party ... the boss's wife has to look nice, right!? So, I went with both sets of traditional holiday colors: green & red and silver & gold. I painted each nail with two coats of colors alternating between silver, red, and green. Next, I cut long triangular pieces of scotch tape, and placed it across the center of my nail. Once the tape was set, I painted different colors on the top and bottom sections. Once that was complete, I used the amazing gold flakes over the entire nail. My husband was happy, and I received a ton of compliments!!!
