Christmas Nail Art In 3 Steps

Nail art can be tricky, very tricky. The best way to tackle it is just to keep it simple. As Blogmas nears an end I thought I'd better throw in one last Christmas themed beauty post as well..

Step 1 - Paint the base coat of your choice. I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Nail Polish in Pear Drop. Which is a lovely green pearl-like finish shade. I used two thin coats for best results.
Step 2 - Then using a red nail polish paint on a rough triangle shape. For this step I used thin strokes to build up an equal shape using Nails Inc by Kate Spade in Big Apple Red.
Step 3 - Using a white polish draw a thin line at the tip of the nail before spreading it out with random strokes to create a fur-looking effect. Repeat this at the tip of the triangle but in a circle shape.

And there we have Santa's hats for your nails!

Top Tips
  • Always use a top coat once dry to ensure it stays together well with no chips
  • Apply thin layers so it's quicker dry and less likely to smudge
  • Have a flat work surface with good lighting if possible
Have you given nail art a whirl before?
