Christmas Nails

Hey, welcome to my nail blog!  I hope you enjoy it!  Eventually, I will probably post new nails about once a week, but for now, I’m going to back log some older nail creations in addition to current ones, so the posts will be more frequent.

To start off, here is my current nail creation, Christmas nails!Image

 

I originally got the idea from here.  I didn’t have a shade of white that I thought would look good with the other colors, so I decided to do gold as a base shade, and I think it turned out really well!

This was my first time trying dotting.  Since I have limited funds to buy nail art tools, I decided to try using a bobby pin.  I just pulled it apart and used one of the ends.

ImageIt took a little practice, but worked well in the end.  The rest of the nail was pretty simple, just paint a base coat of gold, then do the tips with green (there are many different techniques to do french manicures, but I usually just do them freestyle), and then I painted the thin silver sparkle stripe across the bottom of the green (make sure to keep it mostly on the green because it won’t really show up on the gold part).  Then the dotting and a top coat and you are done!
