There are only less than two weeks left till Christmas and we hope that you’re already in the spirit for this joyous celebration because we surely are. To commemorate the holiday season, we’re showing you some easy Christmas-inspired nail art designs you can do to jazz up your nails. These designs are adorable and requires no professional skills whatsoever!
You’ll need: An assortment of nail polish colours, base coat, top coat, nail art brushes, dotting tools, cotton pads and some nail polish remover to clean up any mess.
Before you begin, apply a base coat on your nails to protect them from chipping and to enable the nail polish to last longer.
Paint your nail with a base colour of your choice. We chose a light lavender colour so that the tree would stand out against the background. Starting with a dark green colour, make several dots randomly on the nail, keeping in mind a rough triangular shape for the tree. Repeat with a light green colour to fill in any gaps and then, use a smaller dotting tool to add some red dots on the tree. To finish it off, add a yellow dot at the top to resemble a star.
Paint your nail with a muddy brown polish to resemble the colour of a gingerbread. Using a white polish, add some frosting on the gingerbread by drawing a squiggly line at the bottom half of the nail. For the buttons, align two white dots vertically and go over the dots with some coloured polish.
Paint your nail with a white polish and use a dotting tool to create two black dots for its eyes. For the mouth, make some dots in a curved line to resemble a smile and use a brush to carefully paint on its carrot nose with some orange polish. Finish your design by painting on some black polish at the top of the nail.
This is probably the simplest design you can achieve. Firstly, paint your entire nail white. Then, use your brush to create diagonal lines across the nail with some red polish and fill in the areas alternating between sections.
With some red polish, cover the top quarter of the nail and don’t worry as it doesn’t have to be perfect. With a dotting tool and white polish, partially overlap the red polish to create the white fluff under Santa’s hat. Continue to dot some white polish at the bottom half of the nail to create his beard. After that, use a brush to draw some sideburns on each side of your nail and finish it off with some black dots for his eyes.
Paint your nail green to resemble the colour of a Christmas tree and create two squiggly lines across the nail for the electrical cord. As for the lights, create several dots in yellow and red polish along the two black lines.
Firstly, paint on a triangular shape three quarters from the bottom of the nail. Next, use a dotting tool and white polish to create a bigger dot at the top of the triangle as well as to complete the white fluff at the bottom of the hat. Finally, add some falling snow by randomly creating a few smaller white dots around the empty spaces on the nail.
After you’re done, seal your nail art designs with a top coat to add shine and to protect your hard work. Hopefully, these designs will inspire you to gear up for the upcoming festivities. Enjoy!
