Nath's Manicure: Christmas Nails (+Tutorial)

Hi everyone! It's that time of the year again!
Time does move very fast since it's December already and Christmas is almost here! Today, I want to share a tutorial of my Christmas nails. I actually came across a lot of Christmas nail-art designs and here, I mixed everything I could find so here's my Christmas nails ^^

Without further ado, here's the tutorial ^^

First of all, paint your nails as following:
  • Thumb: red nail polish
  • Index finger: white nail polish
  • Middle finger: green nail polish
  • Ring finger: beige nail polish
  • Little finger: red nail polish

  1. Using sponge, dab white nail polish onto the tip of your nail.
  2. Create a big snowflake on the corner. [P.S. sorry for the bad illustration ><]
  3. Add a smaller star shape on another corner and add some dots between the spaces.

  1. Create two black dots for the snowman's eyes and another 4 to 5 smaller dots for the "mouth".
  2. Create a triangle on the middle with orange nail polish as the carrot nose.

  1. Create a rounded-triangular shape with a "tail" as the Santa's hat with red nail polish. Using beige nail polish, create the Santa's face.
  2. Take white nail polish, create a dot at the end of the "tail" and create dots between the red and beige nail polish.
  3. Create the Santa's beard using white nail polish.
  4. Using smaller dotting tool or a toothpick, create two small black dots as the Santa's eyes.

  1. Create a half circle using black nail polish on the tip of your nail.
  2. On top of the black nail polish, create melting effect with white nail polish.
  3. Add two small red dots as seen on the picture.
  4. Create leaf shape with green nail polish.

  1. Create a triangle shape with green nail polish. Dot along the outlines to create the tree-like effect.
  2. Create a star-like shape using yellow nail polish.
  3. Create dots inside the green triangle using yellow nail polish as the Christmas tree ornaments. 

Tips and Tricks

1. Do not forget to apply base coat before and top coat after.
2. Clean up the "side mess" using cotton bud.
