  1. Polish nail with a dark color like OPI Ice-Bergers and Fries. Using cashmere-beige craft paint and a striping brush, make five angled flair brush strokes.

Use opposite colors for veining each leaf.
  2. Create berries by using a toothpick and crimson craft paint or polish to place three dots at the top of each holly leaf.
  3. Add green glitter to each holly leaf and use a gold glitter striper for accents.
