Hi everyone and Merry Christmas! (Well almost!) Today I decided to do a fun and simple Christmas themed nail art! I settled on the Christmas Tree as the theme because I love decorating the tree every year! Here are the bottles of polish I used to do this nail art:
Ciaté's "Apple Custard", Sally Hansen Hard As Nail's "Black Heart", Sinful Color's "Ruby Refined", Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in "Mellow Yellow", and Sally Hansen Sugar Shimmer's "Work of Tart."
I decided to start with green nails since Christmas trees are green, The green I decided to use is Ciaté's "Apple Custard" because it is a dusty green.
For two of my nails I decided to leave them green but give them a little texture so I used a dotting tool to spread Sally Hansen Sugar Shimmer in "Work of Tart" on the pointer and pinky fingers. It is uneven and I think adds some fun little depth to my nails.
As with all Christmas trees you hang glass balls, so I used Sinful Color's "Ruby Refined" and a dotting tool to put an ornament on my thumb and ring finger. Then I used a small dotting tool to add black hooks on the glass ball ornaments, this is where I used Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in "Black Heart."
The last thing I did was add a yellow star to my middle finger, because the top of my Chirstmas tree always has a star on it! I used the small dotting tool to draw a star and fill it in using Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear's "Mellow Yellow."
After all the nails were completed I topped them off with Orly's "Sec'N'Dry" which is a quick drying topcoat. That was your nail art doesn't smudge!
Here are the dotting tools I used:
I purchased the dotting tools on Amazon and there were very affordable. I mainly used the green one for this nail art because it has a large tip for the bigger designs and a very small tip for the more detailed parts of the nail art.
