Tis’ the season for glitzy, fun, Christmas nails, but oh what nail polishes or designs to do?!
I’ve tried out a few of my favourite festive designs to give you inspiration, from the simple to the more wacky.
All these designs were created with just the six nail polishes (most only require two) below along with a cocktail stick…simples.
From left to right:
Nails Inc – Special Effects ‘The Donmar’ / Seche – ‘Hypnotic’ / Rimmel – Salon Pro by Kate ‘Rock N Roll’ / Nails Inc – ‘Floral Street’ / Revlon Colorstay ‘Stiletto’ / Nails Inc – ‘Chelsea Embankment’
I’ve broken this design down for you in the steps below, nail by nail as each nail has a different design.
The main tip to bear in mind – if at first you make a slight error, or the lines are slightly wobbly, you can tidy it up by applying the background colour (in this case red) and re-outline the design.
This is based on the Christmas jumper look so I don’t feel the motifs have to be perfect, it adds the fuzzy jumper look if they aren’t.
NAIL 4: .…just polka dots
More Christmas nail ideas – using only the products mentioned above..
Which is your favourite design?
