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

Apply a base color of your choice that will contrast the color of the trees. I used Ciate’s “Cream Soda.”

Using the brush from a white nail polish paint an uneven french tip. I used Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in “White Out.”

With a dark green color and a detail brush, paint a Christmas tree by painting vertical lines directly above each other that get shorter towards the top. I mixed Apple Barrel’s “Black” and “Christmas Green” acrylic paint and I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush.

To paint the bare trees, use the same detail brush and a dark brown or black color. Paint a vertical with squiggly lines coming out from it and more small lines coming from those squiggly lines. I used Apple Barrel’s “Black” acrylic paint.

Add snow to the trees by doing a dry brush technique with a detail brush and white color. Basically, wipe most of the paint off of the brush and then paint small dashes onto the tree. I used Apple Barrel’s “White” acrylic paint.

To add falling snow, paint small, white, uneven dots surrounding the trees using the same materials.

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