Simple Christmas Nails

Hello Lovelies,

So I always love doing nail art around the holidays and I was running short on time when I was doing my nails and thought of an easy way to get the nail art effect with out taking up a lot of time. I chose to go with the classic red nails and I added a snowy effect to my ring fingers and my thumbs. Here is how it turned out...

This effect was really easy to achieve, here's how I did it:
So I first painted all may nails with my chosen color (red) and let it dry completely. Then I went and grabbed a cotton ball and my white nail polish. I put a drop of the white nail polish on a piece of paper and took the cotton ball and patted it in the white. To test the amount of the polish on the cotton ball I patted it out on the paper a few times till I got my desired look. Then I gently patted it on the tips of my nails until it looked like a little snow flurry.  There will be a few pieces of the cotton ball fibers attached to your nails, so just wait till the white dries to pull them off! Then I added my favorite top coat!

You can also add more nail art on the other nails to give it the full Christmas look!

  1. What a good idea! I've tried this with a sponge before but it didn't give as nice of an effect. Thanks for posting :D

  6. This is such a simple but effective technique. I wouldn't have thought of using cotton wool to dab nail polish.
