Easy Christmas Tree Nails

Published December 5, 2016 by beginnersnailart

Hi everyone. This week my Christmas tree is going up, so I thought I needed matching nails to go with it!All you’ll need to try them out yourself is a gold (or silver) base colour, a pearly dark green, a pearly red, striping tape (or masking tape), and two dotting tools (small and medium).I’ve used Technic’s Seashell, Zephyr, Sea Foam, and Rococco. I mixed Zephyr and Sea Foam to get my tree colour as one was a little light and the other too dark.

Step 1: apply two thin coats of your base colour and let it dry completely.
Step 2: use your green polish and small dotting tool to mark out the points of your trees so they aren’t crooked.

Step 3: place tape on your nails like this, matching up with the dots you placed.
Step 4: add a few green dots in each triangle with your medium dotting tool.
Step 5: fill in the rest with small green dots.
Step 6: add a few red dots on each side with your small dotting tool for baubles.
Step 7: carefully remove the tape from your nails for sharp lines.
Step 8: clean up around your nails, add topcoat, and you’re done!

I really hope you liked this design, and try it out with colours to match your own tree šŸ™‚
