Blogmas Day 3 - Festive Nail Art

An easy way to get into the festive spirit is to have a Christmassy design on your nails. Personally, I love doing my nails and have soooo many nail polishes in every colour and type/brand, so what better way to use them than creating a festive design?! This is super easy to do, without requiring too many colours etc or taking too long to do.

Festive Christmas nail art Using Barry M

Barry M Nail Paint in White
Barry M Nail Paint in Black
Barry M Nail Paint in Bright Red
Barry M Plumpy Top Coat
Small paintbrush
Ball point pen

Paint all your nails but your ring finger using the black nail polish. You will probably need around 2 coats to completely cover your nails - just make sure each coat is completely dry before you do another to prevent bubbles!

Paint your ring finger with the white nail polish. The same applies about the number of coats needed.

Once your nails are completely dry, use the small paint brush in the red nail polish and paint 3 small triangles one on top of the other to create a tree on your ring finger (the white one). You could do this green if you want it really festive - I would use Barry M in

On the black nails, use the ball point pen and gently dip the end in the white polish and place dots from the ends of your nail down to create a snow effect. There should be more at the end than anywhere.

When all your nails are completely dry, paint over with the clear top coat to keep the design in place and hopefully prevent the polish from chipping.

There you have it - a super easy but effective nail art design. Let me know how you get on if you decide to try this!
