Candy Cane Nails
Making your nails look as festive as candy canes is incredibly easy. Start by applying a white basecoat on your clean, trimmed fingernails and let it dry. Cut a few strips of tape in various widths and arrange them on your nails to create the stripe pattern. Then simply paint your nails again using red nail polish. Spruce up the stripes by using glitter polish. To finish, apply a heavy coat of clear polish to protect your candy cane nails. When the top coat dries, your nails will be ready for the holidays. Sweet.
The weather outside might be frightful, but these nails are so delightful. Let it snow through your nails by doing this simple and cool nail art design. Choose either a dark or light blue nail polish colour as your basecoat and let it dry. Using a stripper tool or any brush with a fine tip, dip it into white nail polish and create as many snowflakes as you desire. Instead of a plain clear nail polish as the topcoat, you can seal the design with a clear, shimmering polish to make your nails sparkle.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
The Christmas tree is one of the most iconic images of the Yuletide holiday and is often the star of the party. Apply a neutral basecoat on your nails and leave them to dry thoroughly. Using two strips of tape, stick them on your nails in a vertical V, with the pointed tip on your cuticle. Paint over the exposed nail with your choice of green nail polish. Paint over that with a glittery green polish to really make the colour pop and voila, you’re done. Embellish with your nail tree with a small star.
Here Comes Santa Claus
Ho, ho, ho! How cute are these Santa Claus-inspired nails. Dress up your nails like St. Nick for the holidays. Start off with a bright red basecoat. Once that dries, take white nail polish and spread two lines across the nail tip and right down the middle. Dot black nail polish along the middle line. To fasten the outfit together, draw a line using black nail polish across the nail, just a little above the French tip. Finish the design off by drawing a belt buckle using glittery gold nail polish. How many kisses do you think you’ll get under the mistletoe that night?
The design starts with a bold shimmery red basecoat. To draw Rudolph, take your stripper brush and create a half oblong that covers around one third of your nail. Then top that off with two rectangles to make Rudolph’s ears. Two big dots make Rudolph’s eyes and a smaller shimmery red oblong makes his famous nose. For finishing touches, dip your stripper brush in black nail polish and draw his antlers, add details to his eyes, and outline his head to make him really stand out. With nails this bright, you’ll be guiding the festivities well into New Year’s.
