Christmas Nail Art - Winter Wonderland

Hi everyone!

I have another Christmas mani for you today! This is probably my favourite one that I've done this year so far, so hopefully you all like it as well!


To create this winter wonderland design, I first started by doing a gradient with China Glaze First Mate, Sky High-Top and Bahamian Escape. Most of Bahamian Espcape ended up being covered by the snow tips, but that's ok. And I do have a step-by-step tutorial for gradient nails, so you can check that out here.

My next step was to create the snow at the tips, which I just did using a striping brush and Wet 'n' Wild French White. When that was done, I used a really small nail art brush and freehanded on some trees with both China Glaze First Mate and Wet 'n' Wild French White. Finally, I used a tiny dotting tool and added some falling snow.


Although I get a strong Christmas vibe from this mani, I think it could still be appropriate during the entire winter season! So it's a little more versatile than most other Christmas designs.


I had planned on doing a tutorial for this design while I was doing it, but didn't end up having the extra time. So if you'd like to see a tutorial, let me know in the comments and I'll put that on my to-do list. :)

Thanks for looking!

  2. How cute. And I'd say you could definitely wear this all winter long, not just around Christmas.
