CHRISTMAS LIGHT NAILS MANI
We’re back with another festive DIY today, this time we’re getting Christmassy with nail art! Last year, you guys loved our Christmas light cookie DIY so we thought we would bring the lights back again and create a fun tutorial to jazz up your regular manicure! I mean, sure, you could go for snowflakes or candy canes but why not switch it up and add a splash of colour to your nails this year!
YOU WILL NEED:
Silver Nail varnish // Glitter nail varnish // A thin nail brush // Black nail varnish // Acrylic nail paint in purple, pink, yellow & blue (We used Oumaxi) // Top coat //
Paint your nails with a coat of silver polish, allow to fully dry and then add another coat.
Once that’s dry, add on a coat of your glitter nail varnish and allow to dry.
Taking your thin brush, dip it into your black nail varnish and carefully create curving lines along the nails, varying the direction you start on each nail. This will be the string for your Christmas lights.
Starting with one colour, add little pointed oval shapes to the edge of the ‘black string’ using your thin brush. We started with blue on every nail, then washed the brush and added on all of the pink, then yellow and then purple. Make sure that you change the placement of colours on each nail so that the design doesn’t look exactly the same on every finger.
Finally, add a glossy top coat to your nails and allow to dry.
Then there you have it! One super festive and not to mention, very colourful Christmas nail art manicure! Now everyone will know you are SO READY for Christmas wherever you go! xx
P.S How awesome are those colourful Christmas lights?! We’re absolutely obsessed with them! You can grab yourself some from Paperchase!
