Nail Art Tutorial: Christmas-y Nails for Beginners

Happy Monday friends! :)  Positivity is always the right attitude to start a Manic Monday like this!  A dear friend Anastacia requested for a very simple nail art that doesn't use any stickers, it has been a long time request so dear, I hope you like this! :)




Step 1:
Apply base coat prior to polish application.  Using ELF Polish in Gum pink, apply 2 coats and let dry.  You can use any matte polish as a base for this tutorial.


Step 2:
Using L.A. Colors Art Deco in White, quickly create several lines like the previous one I've done for my Fimo Nails.  


Step 3:
Using Prettynails' baby pink glitter 2 way nail art pen, create lines on top of the white lines to create an illussion of a "snow capped" pink mountain! hahaha



Step 4:
Using L.A. Colors Art Deco in Sparkly Red, do the same strokes as Steps2-3 and do not cover all the "white" portion.




Step 5:
Apply rhinestones as needed.  I want it simpler so I used one on each fingers and more on thumbnails.




Step 6:
Top your art with your favorite top coat.




Enjoy your simple nail art
It looks festive and you're ready for Christmas season!
