Mani Monday: Vintage Christmas Lightbulbs


We upload a lot of nail art (like a lot) on our Instagram page @nailpromagazine. But it’s not everyday that a post we share generates nearly 10,000 likes! The photo was a close up on a claw pose featuring hand-painted vintage Christmas lightbulbs that were perfectly fitted on a set of sculpted almonds. The festive design was first shared by Danielle Carpenter of Aura Nail Design in Seattle, WA. It was obvious you really loved this look because we’re seeing more pros recreate this Christmas look. Here, a round up of our favorites.
