I have one last holiday mani to share with you today! This is my official Christmas mani, so this is what I'll be wearing over the next few days. I've actually seen this design around before and I just knew that it would be perfect as a Christmas Eve/Christmas Day mani.
First I started with Zoya Song as a base colour. I thought this was perfect because it's not too dark but not too light and the little bit of shimmer sort of acts as night stars without being too overwhelming.
For the Santa nail, I started first by drawing the basic shapes with white polish. I then filled the chimney in with China Glaze Brownstone and added the detailing with American Apparel California Trooper.
I did the snow and the fluff on Santa's pants using a small dotting tool and Wet 'n' Wild French White and Santa's pants were done using China Glaze Salsa. Finally, his boots were done with Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme.
For the non-accent nails I just added a bit of snow at the tips with white polish and a medium sized dotting tool. I wanted these nails to incorporate the elements that are in the accent nail, but I still wanted the Santa nail to be the primary focus.
... After reading all of that back to myself, it reads like I over-thought this manicure like crazy! But what can I say, I put a lot of thought into each and every one of my nail art designs!
OMG a wild thumb has appeared!
Thanks for reading! And have a very Merry Christmas everyone!
