It’s finally December! You know what that means, fluffy white snow, glittery tinsel, and lots of hot cocoa! In honor of the holidays, every Wednesday in December I will share with you a step-by-step tutorial on a different holiday nail design. This weeks nail art is…. Rudolph! What other way to kick off this festive month than with the red-nosed reindeer itself?
Nail Polishes used:
- Julep Cynthia (sparkly light brown) & Chloe (dark brown)
- Ciate Enchanted Rose (glittery red)
- Loreal “Caught Red Handed” (bright red)
- Sally Hansen “White On” (white)
- Basic black polish
- Julep Freedom Polymer topcoat
Step 1: Apply two coats of your favorite white polish. Let dry for 5 minutes.
Step 2: Using a light brown polish, create half-circles on the tip of the nail. This will act as the reindeer’s “head“.
Step 4: Using the same toothpick method, drop your dark brown polish onto a small piece of paper. Starting at the top of the head, draw one brown line straight up and one line angled. These are the beginnings of the “antlers“.
Step 7: Add small black dots inside the white dots, to create “pupils” (this also adds character). Next, create a smaller half circle with red polish and top it off with glittery red! You now have Rudolph’s “red-nose”. Let this dry for 5-10 minutes to prevent smearing, then apply a coat of your favorite topcoat!
Voila! In just a few simple steps, you can wow all your friends and family with these festive nails! They look a lot more complicated than they actually are.. Remember if you try out these nails, hashtag “#razberriez” so I can see all your amazing work!
