Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”


Apply a base color of your choice, I used KleanColor’s “Red Alert.”


With a white polish and a detail brush, paint small candy canes all over the nails. I did this by first painting a small dash and then adding a curved “c” shape coming off the top of that. I used Red Carpet’s “Detail Brush” and Sinful Colors’ “Snow Me White.”


Towards the edges of the nail add partial shapes of the candy canes to make it look more like a pattern.


With a thin detail brush add the stripes to the candy canes. Use a red polish, or in my case the same color as the background color. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush.


Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”


Your candy cane pattern nails are finished!
