If you're planning to pimp your nails out for a Christmas wedding, this tutorial from French nail blogger Camille is pretty fabulous. Glossy red, red glitter, and an intricate Christmas tree are totally worth the effort.

You'll need some clear or masking tape, some really thin tape (available here or you can cut it to size), at least two colors of polish, and a tooth pick. Make sure your base color is really dry, set up your triangle shape with two pieces of tape and some crossing strips to make the "garland," and then fill in with your secondary color. Remove the tape before it dries.

Feel free to dot on a few little ornaments with a tooth pick if you want more decoration, and prepare for MAJORLY CUTE NAILS! For a romantic twist, put the tree on your ring finger. Check out Camille's photo steps:

I think with my nail skills, I'll need to simplify it into a Festivus pole!
