Nail Art Tutorial: "Christmas Wreath" Inspired Nails

Hello Smiley Peeps!!! :)

I just want to say thanks so much for the additional comments and advises you have done! I love it when I post the questions from the readers and a lot of you would also give your answers! Many heads are definitely better than one!!! I love it when everyone share their 2 cents :) :) :) Again THANK YOU!

----------------------------------------------------

It's nail art tutorial once again and I hope you gals appreciate my amateur-ish tutorial!!! Again, if I can do it, you definitely can! :)

I tried to do something Christmas related but it's not the usual Christmas trees, snowman or candles. I was a bit in a hurry to do my nail art as I have to meet up with my brother (who just came back for vacation by the way) and I got only an hour to do my toe nails and finger nails!

I got inspired with the "Christmas Wreath" but of course there's now way I can draw that! LOL So here's my version :) Hope you like it!

Step 1:

Always apply a base coat before you apply any polish color. Apply on 1 or 2 coats of your choice of polish color. I used Neon Blue from Aika.
Let Dry.




Step 2

Apply another coat of the polish



while polish is still wet, use a white nail art pen, drop 5 dots forming a circle. Applying the dots while the base polish is wet will make it blend with the polish color, dried polish will create an "embossed" dot.




Step 3

Using a needle, quickly draw a line between the circles as shown on photo below.




Step 4:

Drop a clear polish in the middle of the "circle" you've created.




Wipe the tool to the clear polish as well and grab a piece of gem and attach in the center of the nail art.







Step 5:

Top it with a glittery polish for Christmas glow.



Top is with a Top Coat. I've used the Face Shop's Top Coat :)



And I'm Done!!!



It looks hard but it really isn't that hard :)
Just a couple of days left before Christmas!
Share a smile to people you see today!
It'll make them feel a lot better!
Spread the love, spread the joy! :D
