Christmas Nails

Hello Lovelies,

So here I go again doing another Christmas nail tutorial! Ive been really into the holiday spririt and wanted to go all out for this design.

Here is how I did it:

1. I first applied my my base coat and let it dry. Then I took my red nail polish and applied it to all my nails except my ring finger. I then applied a gold polish to my ring finger and let it dry. I applied 2 layer of polish to each finger.

2. It's time for the polka dots! This step is a little tricky but with practice it gets easier. Place a few drops gold polish on a scrap piece of paper and using the back of a small makeup brush or if you have one a dotting tool, grab some gold and gently apply dots in a random pattern.

3. Now for the tree. Take two small pieces of scotch tape and apply them to your ring finger to make a triangle. You want the tip of the tree to be about 3/4 up the nail. Then, make sure the tape is placed on so that there are no gaps and apply a green polish to the nail. Let it dry completely before removing the tape, and make sure you pull the tape off slowly so it doesn't take any of the gold polish with it.

Last but not least add a small little red dot to the top of the tree and let it dry! And don't forget to apply your favorite top coat once you are finished!

Hope you guys like this idea, and I promise this is the last holiday nail tutorial I am doing!
