Festive Nail Art

Hello everyone!

A couple of months ago I did a Halloween nail art post. I definitely prefer Christmas over Halloween so I wanted to do a Christmas version. I'm not the best at nail art so if I can do these 5 festive designs then anyone can. If you wanted to you could go all out and do a pattern on every nail or you could just do one on an accent nail.

This one is inspired by a Christmas jumper. It's quite easy as long as you have a steady hand. All you need to do to recreate this is paint your whole nail in a classic red then use a white nail art pen (it's easier using a nail art pen than a nail polish brush) to create the zig- zag across the middle and add some polka dots on either side.

This one is my favourite out of them all. It's a Christmas tree! Again paint your whole nail in a classic red. Then use a deep shimmery green and paint a triangle so that the widest part is at the tip of the nail. Once dry dot on some bright colours for the baubles on the tree. Last but not least use a gold (or silver) polish for the star on top. Or if you wanted to be extra fancy you could use a nail gem to add a 3D effect.

This one was a bit of a fail but I'm going to include it anyway so that you guys can take inspiration and hopefully do this better than I have. To do this holly design you have to paint your whole nail in white. Then using a green colour paint on some leaves. Once those are dry dot on some red spots for the berries.

This Rudolph one is so cute! First, paint your whole nail a light brown colour. Using a white nail art pen draw 2 dots for eyes. Once they are dry add 2 black dots in the centre for the pupils. Using the black you used for the pupils draw on the antlers. Last, we have to do the red nose! Paint a semi- circle at the tip in a deep red colour.Then to add some extra sparkle go over the semi- circle in a glittery red!

This is probably the easiest one out of them all. It's a basic, but still festive, candy cane design. All you need to do is paint your whole nail white. Then do some red diagonal stripes. My stripes were a bit thick but you can make them as thin or as thick as you like. If you wanted to make it a bit more exciting you could go over the stripes with a glitter like the one in the Rudolph design.

So there you have it. 5 festive nail art ideas. Let me know in the comments if you try out any of these or any other Christmas-y nail art designs. See you soon with another post!
