#BigBlogmasProject2014 | Candy Canes and Sparkles Nail Art

Hey guys!

Today I FINALLY painted my Christmas nails! I have decided to go with candy cane nails with a blue glittery accent nail on both ring fingers. Want to know how I done it? Read on!

You will need:

  • Light blue nail polish
  • White nail polish
  • Red nail polish
  • A striper
  • Glitter nail polish
  • Top/Base coat

1. Paint your nails with a base coat and let them dry fully.

2. Paint all nails but your ring finger nails white. They may need more than one coat to create a solid colour. Leave them to dry.

3. Paint your ring finger nails with the light blue nail polish and let that dry.

4. Once your ring finger nails have dried, paint a coat of the glitter nail polish on both of them and leave that to dry.

5. Coat the striper in the red polish. Begin to draw diagonal stripes across your nails. I think doing 3 red stripes on each nail looks super effective. Also, try to make each red line similar in thickness. Leave them to dry.

6. Paint a top coat on to your ring fingers like normal. When it comes to putting on a top coat for your candy cane nails, do them following the diagonal lines as opposed to just straight down like you normally would. Do all the white stripes first and then all the red ones. This is because if you do it like you normally would you will smudge the colours together and ruin the design!

There you have it! Alternatively, you can try cutting tape into thin stripes and using them on your nails to create the perfect stripes. I tried this but it didn't work well with the white nail polish I was using and just pulled it all off!

What are on your Christmas nails? Let me know if you recreate this!
