Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner?!?! To carry on my holiday festive nail art I reached out to my instagram peeps for inspiration. Many suggested candy canes and I just knew I couldn’t let them down…LOL! And I also knew it was something fairly easy that I could do and it not end up being a big flop.
The 4 colors that I used were Sally Hansen Red Carper, Pure Ice Dazzy Me, Color Club Harp On It and OPI Alpine Snow. For my ring finger I painted 2 coats of the white and let it completely dry. I then arranged several pieces of nail art tape and painted 2 coats of the red. And I LOVE how it came out. Red Carpet is one of my favorite colors because of the sparkle of red glitter in it. It reminds me of Dorothy’s shoes in the Wizard of Oz. For my middle finger I used my Sally Hansen Nail Art pen in black to draw an outline of a candy cane, then just filled in with the red and white. And to jazz up my pointer finger I painted 2 light coats of the silver glitter. I’ve finally figured out that glitter seems to work SO much better if I paint at least a nice opaque color underneath versus just the glitter color alone.
So what do you think of the candy canes? All of my Christmas nail art is also helping me get in more of a festive mood. Now ask me if I’ve put my tree up yet…oops!
