Christmas Nails (Tutorial)

Just 4 more days and it's Christmas! Everything around you is going to be red and green soon! And yeah I somehow always disliked the man pretending to be Santa. So I decided, I'll have my own Santa  x 5 On My Nails!!!

Wanna see how??? You will need:
1. Base Coat
 

Here I am using Jordana Nail Lengthener as my base coat. I don't remember the last time I wore nail polish without base coat! Maybe when I was in school! I don't intend on sounding vain, but then base coat really helps you protect your nails and also makes them stronger! So apply one coat of this!

2. Nail Polish And Top Coat




For this tutorial, I am using Maybelline Colorama #40 in Graus! Apply about 2 coats of Graus. Make sure your polish is even for a finished look.

 Before you proceed to the next step, wait for Graus to completely dry out to prevent a literally bloody mess on your nails!!!

And once our design is done, towards the extreme end of the tutorial, we will need to seal it in with Top Coat. I'm using Maybelline's Brillo!

3. Time to bring in The Merry Boys : Santa Nail Stickers



Now if you are artistically adventurous, you can make these designs with a dotting tool, nail art brush and acrylic paints. I found these cute stickers that make life so much easier! I bought them from The New Beauty Centre, Bandra, and they just cost Rs. 40!



4. Faces Rhinestone Tweezers



If you thought that tweezers only pluck out hair then think again. Tweezers are very useful in nail art too. Here I used tweezers to neatly take out the Nail Stickers and place them on to my nails for an even flat finish!

Now carefully take out the stickers one by one and stick them onto the desired part of your nail. I stuck them randomly wherever I felt like it!

 5. Rong Xin Nail Art Pen



What's Christmas without snow??? Use the Nail Art Pen to make tiny dots resembling snowflakes! You can also use a white nail polish. Simply take a drop of nail polish on a paper and make the dots using a dotting tool or a tooth-pick!




And finish off with Maybelline Brillo or any top coat of your choice! And that's it! Enjoy your nails!




And that's all that this was about:



Merry Christmas!


 Yours till they celebrate Christmas!

S!
