Therefore it’s my run up to Christmas nail design posts! Starting with my snowy Christmas scene nails. This one is a little more intricate than my usual ones – I went all out on this design – for what I’m normally capable of anyway ha.
This is a more time consuming design but not difficult or hard work to do at all, which is awesome!
For this look I used:
A navy blue base, a dark blue glitter, a white, a white glitter to cover the white polish, black for the snowman’s eyes, smile and buttons, an orange for his nose and a red and green for the baubles on the Christmas tree (but you could use which ever colours you like for that bit :))
I also used a large dotting tool for the snow drops, a very small dotting tool for the baubles and snowman’s face & buttons and a small brush tool for the Christmas tree’s.
Taking your navy blue, apply 2-3 coats and once dry and one good coat of your blue glitter. Once this has dried, take your white and apply a wobbly French manicure type line to the edge of your nail. Don’t make it too straight as it’s supposed to look like snow has fallen naturally and unevenly. You might need two coats of this depending on how thick your white polish is. Then whilst that’s drying, take your large dotting tools and apply your snow drops to all of your nails but only to 2/3rds of the nail – avoiding your ring finger. You need to remember to leave room for your Christmas tree. Whilst you have your large dotting tool to hand, apply a large blob to your ring finger on the line of your snowy tip and a smaller one on top, depending on the length of your nails you may be able to do 3.
Now for the tree. Take your small brush tool and your white polish. Paint on the tree by doing a small flick out left from the point of the tree top, then again from the tree top out right. Then again left from where the point the two flicks meet and right from the same point again. Then a short line vertically downwards for the trunk of the tree all the way into your snowy tip.
By now, your snow drops, tips and snowman should be dry, so go back over them with your white glitter to add some more sparkle and magic to the look. Take your small dotting tool whilst this is drying and add your baubles, I alternated mine red and green for extra Christmassyness but you can use any colour you fancy!
When your snowman is completely dry add on his buttons, eye’s, smiley face and carrot nose (you can even add a top hat/scarf if you have long enough nails for that sort of space!)
ALWAYS finish with your top coat and ONLY when you’re nails are completely dry!
I hope you guys like this tutorial, let me know if you did!
