The Oscars are quickly approaching. If you're like us, you already have your champagne purchased, Oscar ballots in hand and are cramming in last-minute screenings of nominated films. Whether you're celebrating the red carpet with a viewing party or getting cozy at home for the big night, we say treat your nails to some red carpet love. We called in the pros at Caption to create a glittery, glam nail fit for any red carpet. To match this glittering tip, we paired the mani with a sparkling raspberry cocktail from Svedka. Get the how-to and recipe, below!
The Sip: SVEDKAlicious Raspberry Sparkle
One and a half parts SVEDKA Raspberry
Two parts ONEHOPE Wine Sparkling Brut
One and a half parts sour mix
One part white grape juice
Pour all ingredients, except for champagne, into a cocktail shaker. Shake and strain into a Collins glass over fresh ice. Top with champagne. Garnish with a grapefruit peel (optional) and raspberries.
The Tip: The Red Carpet Mani
Striping brush or masking tape
Caption Drying Drops ($12)
Apply a base coat as the foundation of your manicure. Polish a single thin coat on the nails of both hands. Use one coat of Caption Effect Color in Shizaam! to give the nails a solid gold glitter base. With a striper, paint two diagonals on each nail with Caption Core Color in Bite Your Tongue. Fill in the corners of the nails with red to create the "red carpet effect."(You can also use nail masking tape to mask off the middle section of the nail to block off the center part if you prefer.) Let dry and apply a thin coat of top coat. To accelerate drying time, use the drying drops. Apply 1 to 2 drops per nail after allowing the top coat to dry as instructed above.
