Snowflake Nails

img_20170102_170343_383

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

With a striper brush and a white color, paint an “X” on the nail to start the snowflake. Then, paint a line going through that X. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush and Apple Barrel’s “White” acrylic paint.

Then add small dashes coming out from the sides of each of these lines.

To fill up space I added partial snowflakes.

Using a small dotting tool, place dots at the tip of each line on the snowflakes.

To fill up more space, place dots in the empty spaces surrounding the snowflakes.

img_20161225_202837_589

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

img_3243

Apply a base color of your choice, I used a dark purple polish from Ulta Beauty’s “Whimsy & Wonder” set.

img_3245

Paint a circle slightly more towards the tip of the nail with a white polish. I used Sally Hansen’s “White Out” and Winstonia’s “Fine Line” brush but it may be easier to use a large dotting tool.

img_3247

I applied the red polish from the Ulta Beauty’s “Whimsy & Wonder” set over every other circle. Then I applied a rose gold glitter over the red circles and a silver glitter over the white ones, both from Ulta Beauty’s “Shimmer & Shine” set.

With a striper brush, paint a vertical line coming from the cuticle of the nail to the top of the ornament. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush and a metallic shade from Ulta Beauty’s “Shimmer & Shine” set. On both sides of the string, closest to the top of the ornament, paint an oval shape going slightly upwards. I used Red Carpet’s “Detail Brush.”

Christmas Tree Accent Nails

img_20161218_234750

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

img_3206

Apply a white base to all of the nails, I used Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in “White Out.”

img_3208

I applied Latex Tape for minimal clean up to all of the nails except for the accent nail, I used Pueen’s “Latex Tape.”

img_3210

Then, apply some blobs of polish or paint on the nails, I used Apple Barrel’s “Christmas Green” and “Bright Red” acrylic paint.

img_3212

Bunch up saran/cling wrap and then press it onto the nail for a marbled effect. I used Sally Beauty’s “Claw” to make it easier.

img_3213img_3214

Then peal off the latex tape. For the accent nails I simply painted a vertical dash towards the cuticle of the nail and then lightly swiped a brush back and forth with different horizontal lines to create the tree. I used the same green color and Winstonia’s “Fine Line” brush.

img_3216

At the tip of the tree I applied a glitter flake from Sephora by OPI’s “Only Gold For Me Top Coat.”

img_3218

I then applied this glitter top coat to all of the marbled nails and over the tree.

img_20161211_234915

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

img_3166

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

img_3168

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.”

img_3170img_3171img_3172

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

img_3173

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.
