Classic Red Nails With "Gold Leaf" Effect

{supplies: Rimmel's Base Coat/Top Coat Pro, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Right Said Red, Martha Stewart Yellow Gold glitter}
I am a huge fan of the classic red nail.  Now with the holidays around the corner (I can't believe it either), it is the perfect time to start experimenting with more festive looks.  Nail polish/nail art is an extension of your outfit and should not be forgotten.  This quick nail DIY gives the illusion of gold-leaf by the use of glitter, which can add a bit of sparkle to any plain nail polish. 
{paint nails with base coat then red polish}
{when polish dries apply a small amount of top coat to the top portion of the ring fingers}
{sprinkle nails with glitter- shake off excess; then apply top coat to all nails}
{end result: gold leaf effect}
