Hey all! It has been quite some time since I did a Pinterest post or even a nail art post so today, I am here with a festive combo! I was inspired by this pin as well as this pin which are both under my Nail Art board if you’re interested. All I used were my basics plus three.
Quick Dry drops: Essence Nail Art Express Dry Drops
Nail polish: Sonia Kashuk nail polish in Bewitched, OPI Love. Angel. Music. Baby. and OPI Snow Globetrotter.
Tools: e.l.f. Angled Eyeliner Brush
Gems: Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art gemstone set
First step to any nail art is prep your nails. I cut, filed and washed my hands before applying my base coat and colour. I have been really into the evergreen + gold combo this season as you may or may not have seen in my festive #MOTD post. I always use my ring finger as an accent nail so that is where I applied my gold tree using my e.l.f. brush. I am obviously not an artist but I was pretty pleasantly surprised it worked out as well as it did.
I used my dry drops at this point because I didn’t want my tree to smudge but once the nails were dry, I applied the glitter top coat trying to ensure I only picked up the smaller glitters. I was going to leave it there but my tree was looking a little sad so I quickly popped a silvery gem on top of my tree and close to the base of each of my other nails.
I really loved these nails while they lasted. They were Christmas-y without being too intense and they got quite a few compliments (always lovely to hear). Let me know what you think!
Til next time, ttfn x
