Hi everyone. I hope you’ve all been enjoying your Christmas parties so far, and incase you’ve got any last minute parties I’ve got some last minute party nails for you!
Instead of the usual bright, red or green Christmas nails, I went for a soft and girly option. To recreate it you’ll need a pastel pink base colour, a pastel glitter polish, a nude polish, nail striping tape, and some bow nail decals and gems.
I’ve used Technic’s Candy, Ice Cream Ella, Chocolate Milkshake, and to make it easy to get off I’ve used their new peel off base coat. The bow nail decals and gems I’ve used are some of the goodies I got from my Technic advent calendar. The great thing about the decals and gems is they are self adhesive, so no nail glue or extra topcoat needed.
Step 1: if you have any, apply a layer of peel off base coat and let it dry.
Step 2: apply one coat of your pastel base colour.
Step 3: apply your glitter polish to the bottom third of your nails and let if dry.
Step 4: tape off the bottom third of your nails like this.
Step 5: fill in the rest of your nails with your nude polish and remove the tape straight away.
Step 6: using tweezers, carefully peel the bow decals off the backing paper and place them over the line between polishes.
Step 7: place the gems in the centre of the bows.
Step 8: clean up around your nails, apply a thick layer of topcoat to smooth everything out, have a glass of bubbly while they dry, and you’re done!
I really hope you liked this design, and have a brilliant time over the holidays. Thanks for looking, Merry Christmas!
