At Miss Dolla, we love giving you inspiration to expand your portfolio. So, here are some ideas to transform the traditional French tip into a holiday masterpiece.

Why Festive French Tips are a Must-Try This Season

The French tip manicure is renowned for its elegance and simplicity. However, during the holidays, adding a festive twist to this classic can set your designs apart. Incorporating elements like glitter, metallic colors, and holiday-themed art can turn a simple French tip into a festive statement. These designs not only catch the eye but also reflect the joy and spirit of the season, making them a perfect choice for holiday parties and gatherings. Using Miss Dolla's diverse range of nail products, you can create designs that are both beautiful and long-lasting.

  1. Glittery French Tips

Transform the classic French tip into a dazzling holiday feature by replacing the traditional white with a sparkling gel polish. After applying a base coat, use ‘Glitter Queen’ or ‘Own It’ to create the tip. This can be done with any glittery gel nail polish and looks beautiful with any shade! This is perfect for clients who rarely stray from minimalism but want to change it up for the festive season.

This design adds a whimsical touch to the French tip, perfect for capturing the essence of a winter wonderland. Paint the tips with a classic white polish. Once cured, use a fine-tip brush or a nail art pen to draw delicate snowflakes. You can either draw freehand or use a stencil for uniformity. A pale blue background can also add icy depth to the design.

  1. Candy Cane Stripes

This playful design is inspired by the iconic candy cane featuring red and white stripes. Start with a white tip. Once dry, use thin strips of tape to create evenly spaced lines. Paint over these with a vibrant red polish. Carefully remove the tape to reveal your candy cane stripes before curing. For an extra festive twist, add a sprinkle of silver glitter over the red stripes for a shimmering effect.
