Hi everyone, the Christmas nails are here! I’m really happy with how they turned out. The list of what you need and the steps seem a lot, but they didn’t take as long as I thought they would have.
For this design you’ll need a pearly red, white, forest/bottle green, a red glitter, multi-coloured glitter, a large and a small dotting tool, masking tape, and a makeup sponge.
I’ve used White, Sundance, Sea Foam, Carnival and Christmas Cracker (very appropriate), all from Technic.
Step 1: once your base coat dries, paint your thumb and pinky red and the other three nails white then let them fully dry.
Step 2: place two strips of masking tape over your middle nail like this.
Step 3: sponge on your dark green polish and remove the tape straight away.
Step 4: apply a layer of your multi-coloured glitter over the green (you can put fresh tape on to stop any getting on the white polish).
Step 5: dip your large dotting tool in your red and place a dot at the top of your tree.
Step 6: on the other white nails place a few spaced out large, red dots. Use your small dotting tool (or toothpick) and paint a T shape on top of each dot so they look like tree baubles.
Step 7: apply a layer of your red glitter over your red nails (I also went back and put a little red glitter on my baubles and the dot on top of my tree).
Step 8: once everything is dry clean up around your nails, apply your topcoat and your done!
I really hope you liked this Christmassy design and I’ll have another next week! Thank you for reading.
