Festive Nails

Here are a few festive designs that I created over the Christmas period.

Reindeer Nails by Kelly

This was a design I found on Pinterest and wanted to recreate.
The main colours used are Barry M brown, red, glittery red, black and white. In order to achieve the more detailed sections (i.e. the antlers and eyes) I used a cocktails stick which I dipped into the black nail polish. This could achieved even easier if you own a nail art pen (which I now do!).

Penguin Nails by Kelly

The main colours used for this were Barry M black, orange, white and a Topshop pastel blue.
In order to create the finer details on the penguin, I dipped a cocktail stick into each colour required and carefully dapped it onto the nail.

Elf Nails by Kelly

This was a special design for my Mum.
The main colours used are Barry M green, red, white, Topshop pastel blue and a pale pink which can be found in any manicure set. I used a cocktail stick to create the white for the snow drops and for the details sections on the elves faces.

Santa Nails by Kelly

This was the ultimate festive design that was perfect for the week leading up to Christmas. The colours used are a Barry M red, white, glittery sliver, black and a pastel pink which can be found in any manicure set.
Be careful with using the white on the tips of the nails as it does have a tendency to go a bit blobby and can chip easily. A way around this is to ensure that you cover it in a clear polish to try and make the design last. Also, be careful if you cover the whole nail in clear polish as this can run into the white quite easily.
