NOTD: Matte Red Santa Claus Nails!

Hey!

Time to get ready for christmas!

Here I have a gorgeous, easy, super simple nail design for Christmas! This is great for those of you who’re like me, i.e. not exactly an expert when it comes to nail art. You literally need 3 different shades of polish, it’s so quick and so easy! Lets get started!

I used:

  • OPI base coat
  • No7 Devils Delight
  • No7’s Get Wed
  • Barry M’s Lady
  • Medium dotting tool
  • Medium brush tool
  • OPI’s Matte Top Coat

Once you’ve applied your base coat, apply a good 2-3 layers of Devils Delight to every nail except your ring finger. On your ring finger take your medium brush tool and dip it in Devils Delight and paint a floppy hat shape – leaving a sharp curve on one side which goes about 1/3 of the way into your nail.
If you’re not so great with the free hand brushes or you don’t have any to hand, just dip a cotton bud in nail varnish remover and use that to create the empty curve! Nice and easy!

Then once your initial red coat is dry, apply 2 layers of Matte top coat.

Now it’s fluff time!

Take your dotting tool and dip it into Get Wed (this is just a shimmery ivory colour). Create a bobbly by gently dotting at the top of the curve and create the rim by gently dotting in a line across the edge of your nail. Once this is dry (bare in mind this might take a little while because it will sit slightly thicker due to using a dotting tool), apply Lady on top of Get Wed to add some Christmassy shimmer to santa’s hat. Then you’re done!

How easy was that!

Let me know if you guys like it or if you tried it out! I hope you’re all looking forward to Christmas – only 14 days now! Eek!
