Welcome to Ask an Expert, a series in which we ask pros in the beauty and fashion biz to give us a video tutorial on one of the many things they're great at.
For this week's episode, nail master Jin Soon Choi demonstrates how to do an easy festive holiday design, using a dark base coat and a smattering of gold glitter. It's totally foolproof for even the clumsiest of hands, since the glitter is meant to be applied in a freestyle "tap" motion—no straight lines required. To get the look, she used two coats of the Jin Soon Obsidian polish and one coat of Gala glitter, plus top coat. See it all in the tutorial above.
