Magpie Brand Ambassador, Natalia Nicholson (@natalia_nicholson_nails) provides all of the elegant festive feels, with her gorgeous abstract set.

Next Natalia added shimmer lines of CROWN JULES using the STRIPER BRUSH, then added holly leaf details of GREEN, BLACK & RED GEL PAINT, using the DETAILER BRUSH and DOTTING TOOL. Finally, she finished withWHITE GEL PAINT PLUS prints and LIKE A DIAMOND top coat.
