Hi everyone. This week I thought I’d show you five cute Christmas designs that are really quick and easy to do.
I used a total of 8 polishes for all five designs, but the most one design used was four. I also used a thin nail art brush, a small dotting tool, and a large one. I’ll let you know as I go along what I used for each design.
The polishes I used are Rococco, Electro, Moon, Ginger, White, Jet Black, Sunset Strip, and Christmas Cracker, all from Technic.
Tip: don’t forget to clean your tools with polish remover in between colours!
For Rudolph, paint your nail with a brown or bronze polish. Use a large dotting tool and place two dots for eyes near the base of your nail. Take your red and paint a large half circle with the polish brush at the tip. Use your small dotting tool and black polish and place small dots at the centre of the white ones for pupils.
Paint your nail with two coats of green polish and let it dry. Use your thin brush and black polish to paint a line across the middle of your nail (3-5mm thick). Use either your small dotting tool or brush and paint a gold square over the middle of the black line for a belt buckle.
Start off with a nude polish for your base. Dab white polish on the top third of your nail with your large dotting tool for Santa’s beard. Place two dots above this for eyes, and a red dot for his nose. Use the small dotting tool and black polish for pupils. Go in with red polish on your large dotting tool and fill in the nail above the eyes. Give it a few minutes to dry then dab white along the edge above the eyes to finish off his hat.
Paint your nail with two coats of white polish and let it dry. Use your large dotting tool and black polish to create his coal eyes. Switch to your small dotting tool and place a curved, dotted smile for his coal mouth (start in the middle and work out if you want it even). Take some orange polish and your small dotting tool and draw a small triangle for his carrot nose.
Christmas Tree Bauble:
This one is probably the easiest (and quickest) and perfect for a Christmas party! Paint your nail red (you can change the colour if you like). Apply a coat of matching glitter polish and let it dry. Use you small dotting tool and gold polish to paint a small rectangle at the base of your nail (the top of the bauble).
The last step for each design is to clean up around your nails, apply topcoat, and you’re ready for Santa!
I really hope you liked these designs, and give them a try yourself. Thanks for looking,
