Nail Art Tutorial: "Christmas Decor" Nails

Because Christmas is a couple of days away, I would like to go ahead doing another "Christmas-y" Nail Art Tutorial!  I know the usual greens and reds are what you've been seeing out there, but hey!  It's Christmas, it's once a year to do such color combination!  Not unless I'm aiming for Stop Light right? *hehehe*  I hope the simple strokes of lines will be enough for you to create your own "Christmas Decor" Nails!

Here's the final result...


Step 1:
Apply your preferred Base Coat prior to polish application.  Apply alternately Red and Green polish shade.  In this tutorial, I've used The Face Shop's RD301 Polish for the Red and Nature Republic GR601 Polish for the Green shade.  Let dry completely.


Step 2:
Using your own thin brush or in my case, I am using L.A. Art Deco Polish in white, I drew lines just like photo below.



You can choose to do different strokes for the other shade for a more random feel!

Step 3:
To create a more festive feel, I have applied glitters in between the white lines and base color using L.A. Colors Art Deco in Gold Glitters


Step 4:
Making sure all the lines are completely dry, apply your favorite top coat to protect the nail art.  I am using Elianto's Top Coat which is another favorite of mine!



Voila! Instant colorful Christmas Nails perfect for the holidays!  It's Green, It's Red and It sparkles! 


What's your version of Christmas Nails?
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
