Day 341) Simple Christmas nail art

My parents came over for a surprise weekend :D
If you were wondering where I am, I am spending quality time with them...and doing my mother her nails of course ;D

For today a simple Christmas nail art.

Step 1: After the basecoat apply a white polish:

Step 2: Apply glitter polish over the white. Just one half on the ring finger nail:
Claire's 60731 Fabulous
"Fabulous" is a perfect glitter for Christmas. It's a clear base filled with red and gold micro glitter, squared gold glitter and purple hexagons. I'm not sure if I can get it opaque that's why I've layered it over white.

Step 3: On the other half of the ring finger nail I've applied silver/holo glitter but if I had to do it all over again I would just keep it white because it doesn't really add anything.

Step 4: Use a nail art brush/striper to paint 3 lines on the lightest half and end the lines with 3 big dots/balls; Christmas balls.
I've used a purple polish for the Christmas balls to link back to the hexagons.

  1. i really like this glitter and manicure is beautiful!

  2. A very good way to use white, which is something I have been thinking about. What color did you do your mother's nails? :-)
