Blogmas 2014 Day 12 – Christmas nail art tutorial!

Christmas nail art tutorial

Who doesn’t love a bit of Christmas nail art! We would love to see some of yours too, so make sure you leave us some links in the comment box below!

C: I went for a snowflake inspired Christmas nail look to show you guys, I know everyone always thinks dark or bright colours for Christmas so this is something a little different – perfect for Christmas parties!

To do this I used these Izabelle Hammon nail wraps on top of a light blue nail polish (I used Essie’s “where’s my chauffeur”).

And here is the finished look! To do this, all you have to do is file your nails, apply your base coat and the colour you wish to use underneath and let them dry. You then apply your nail sticker to the base of your nail and smooth it out to remove any air/bumpy bits, and then file off the end of the nail sticker. Finish with a long-lasting top coat and you are good to go! I have been wearing these nail wraps for the past 4 days and they still look amazing/haven’t chipped! Love them!

Coral and Gold

A: Chloe and I are going to a ball tomorrow and I’m in full preparation mode tonight. I’ve exfoliated, toned, moisturised and preened, and I’ve just finished painting my nails.

It was a pretty tough decision on what to paint, I’ve got way too many polishes! I needed a pale-ish, not too vibrant colour which isn’t easy when all I buy is anything bright/glittery/a bit gross. This is what I decided on:

A pale coral from Accessorize, a gold W7 glitter, a chunky gold Avon glitter, and a Body Shop clear for base coat and top. Firstly, I did the standard prep of file, buff and base coat. I then applied the coral to all of my nails in two even layers. After this was dry, I used the fine glitter to creat the half crescent shape on my ring finger and then the chunky gold on my index finger as another layer. I then used the dotting pen to add the gold stud to my middle finger.

Im pretty happy with it, I like the mixture of patterns from the glitter and I love using these gold studs because they give a super professional look and they are really cheap! I bought these from eBay for about £2.50 for 50 pieces. Bargain!

The colours go well with my dress too, I needed a toned down base colour because my dress has a really pretty floral print.
