Today I have numbers 7 and 8 in my easy Christmas Nail art series for 2014.
A snowman and a pud, so as I say in my you tube video's, I'll crack on with the post :)
What you'll need
1. White nail polish, I used Barry M nail paint in White, available HERE for £2.99.
2. Black nail polish, again I used Barry M nail paint in Black, available HERE for £2.99.
3. Orange nail polish, I used Collection polish in Orange Zest, available HERE for £1.99.
4. A base and top coat of your choice.
How to create a snowman
1. Apply a base coat of your choice.
2. Apply 2 coats of white nail polish allowing each coat to dry in between.
3. Using the black polish and a dotting tool, create 2 dots for the eyes and around 5 or 6 for the mouth.
4. Using the orange polish and a dotting tool or cocktail stick create a small triangle shape for the nose.
5. Once the snowman is fully dry apply a coat of your favourite top coat.
6. All done!
This is really easy to create but looks great and can be used as an accent nail or on every nail depending on what you prefer. keep reading for the next nail look :)
What you'll need
1. A brown nail polish, I used OPI suzi loves cowboys, available HERE for £7.95.
2. A white nail polish, I used Barry M nail paint in white, available as above.
3. A red nail polish, I used Barry M bright red, available HERE for £2.99.
4. A green nail polish, I used Barry M spring green, available HERE for £2.99.
5. A dotting tool, I use a set from e-bay that were £1.95 inc P&P, you can find them HERE.
6. A base and top coat of your choice.
How to create A Pud
1. Apply a coat of your favourite base coat.
2. Apply 2 coats of brown nail polish allowing each coat to dry fully in between.
3. Using the white polish and a dotting tool or cocktail stick/bobby pin create 4 dots around a third of the way down the nail.
4. Then using the white polish again, create the 'icing' by using the dotting tool to fill in between the dots and fill in the rest of the space where the white needs to go, you can use the brush from the polish for this also dependant on the brush thickness.
5. Allow the white polish to dry fully.
6. Take the green polish and a dotting tool or cocktail stick and create the holly leaves.
7. Take the red polish and create 3 dots in the centre of the holly leaves.
8. Once fully dry, apply a coat of your favourite top coat.
9. All done!
Both these looks are really easy to create, the pudding is harder than the snowman and more time consuming but looks good, I made a mistake with my berries and should have put them in the middle of the holly leaves and not on top of as the colour isn't as vibrant as I'd have liked but this was my first attempt at a Christmas pudding.
Both looks are great for Christmas and can be used as accent nails or on every nail dependant on your preference. I hope you enjoyed both looks.
I have looks 9 & 10 coming up tomorrow and an appearance from the man himself so keep an eye out for those.
Thank you for reading, much love as always,
