'Tis the season for a high-shine manicure that won't chip, and we're sweet on this candy cane-inspired look. As all of you know, we have a full-blown addiction to nail art. From statement nails to glitters gradients and appliques of every type, we love ourselves some decorated tips.

So you can imnagine our elation when COVERGIRL asked us to participate in a nail art video with one of the beauty industry's reigning manicurists, Elle. To celebrate the holidays, COVERGIRL gave us an advance screening, if you will, of the new COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss collection
Take a look at Kaitlyn Dreyling's candy-cane manicure. You'll never guess how Elle created those ruler-straight stripes. Any guesses? OK, fine. We'll let you in on the secret. Watch the how-to video below to see how the look was created!
