When people ask me if I have done all of my Christmas shopping and I tell them that I don't buy into the commercialization of the season, I usually get blank stares, or "Yeah, you're so right" responses. But that doesn't mean I'm against receiving any gifts or spreading a little holiday cheer by doing something as simple as wrapping presents.

She uses an astounding 11 nail polish colors to outfit her fingertips, complete with decadent bows. Click through the slideshow below for Rina's step-by-step instructions on how to recreate her holiday manicure.
