It’ll be Christmas soon so I’ve done some Christmas inspired nails! I’ve done some shimmery purple present nails wrapped in silver ribbon and 3 little white baubles for decoration. They’re super easy to do and pretty quick as well. First thing you need to do is choose your colour, I went with silver and purple because they’re the only two shimmery colours I have that work together and I wanted a festive look. I also used a plain white polish for the baubles.
Now you just need to paint all of your nails with one coloured polish, in my case the purple. Once dry you can do the off centre cross that makes the ribbon. I just used the polish brush that came with the polish and lightly traced the lines onto my nails. You need to be very careful not to make the line too thick if you do it this way. Otherwise you can use a thin brush to do these lines. Again you need to wait for this to dry before doing the next part, which is the little baubles over the intersection of your cross. You will need to use a dotting tool and by now you should know mine ishomemade with a sewing pin stuck into the eraser of a pencil. I put a little polish onto a plastic sheet to make it easier to dip my dotting tool into. You just need to dab three dots onto the part of lines that cross over in a little triangle.
Finally finish off with a clear shiny top coat and the look is finished! You’ll be all wrapped up and ready for Christmas! I hope you enjoy this look and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
