CHRISTMAS NAIL DESIGNS | XMAS HOLIDAY NAIL ART TUTORIALS FOR SHORT NAILS TREE ORNAMENTS EASY


Hi Everyone, Happy Holiday Season Starting this week, I will be Holding December Giveaways on my channel throughout the whole month So stay tuned to the end of this video to find out more Today’s video is a set of Christmas Nails There are 4 designs which I will be showing you and you can pick and choose your favourite to recreate on your own nails You can do the same design on all of your nails or pick 2 and use one as an accent nail Let me know which one is your favourite As always start with base coat to protect your nails Then a layer of red polish as your base color For the first design, all you need is some dotting tools Start with some bigger dots then fill in the rest with some smaller dots Easy peasy. If you don’t have dottings tools, checkout my Craft flower video for some DIY dotting tool ideas you can use instead Start by placing a few bigger dots on the tip of the nail, then a row of smaller dots underneath it You can line them up like I did here, or dot them in randomly to create a fading effect down the nail Then use a the Green polish to fill in the spaces in between. You can also interchange the colors to create an accent nail Try a white back grund with green and red dots or a green back ground with red and white dots For the Second Design, we’re gonna do some hanging ornaments start with a white base color then use a glitter striper and add in 2 diagonal lines Excuse my wonky brush, it has seen better days You can go over the lines again until you get the opacity you need Next use the biggest sotting tool and dot in the Ornaments You can stop here and leave it as it is, or keep going by adding in more details if you are comfortable with your drawing skills Draw a line on top of the ornaments to connect it to the tinsel string Then add in a few lines on the ornament to decorate If doesn’t have to be perfect. It is such a minor detail on the nail, it is only to give an illusion that the ornaments are patterned Then go over the whole nail with some holographic glitter polish to make the design more festive looking For the next design, start with a red base color Use a striper brush like this and line the nail starting from the middle Then work your way outwards. Leave even spaces in between If you don’t have a striper brush, cut some tape into stripes and cover the nail instead then apply a white nail polish all over You can checkout my moonlight cinema video for more detailed instructions If the line isn’t as straight as this, its not a big deal, only the bottom section will be exposed. The rest will be covered up Use a green polish and cover the top half of the nail first Then slowly extend the color down the nail and use the brush corners to smooth out the edges Using a detail brush, draw in a heart shape by starting with a V shape, then fill in the middle Use the second color and add in a smaller
heart shape to create a boarder effect If you have trouble drawing small things, use a dotting motion instead, and go for spots that needs more color Last but not least is the Christmas tree design. This one is my favourite if you remember the crafty French tip design I did using scotch tape? I’m going to use the same technique to create the tree shape Start with a white base color, then use the zigzag edge of the tape and create a triangle shape Start the Tree Tip a little bit down the nail to leave room later for the Star Press down the tape and make sure no air bubbles on the edge and apply the green color in the exposed sections Before the nail polish dries, quickly peel off the tape to create the Christmas Tree silhouette Wait for that to dry, then use the gold glitter striper and add in some zigzag lines down the tree to resemble the tinsels This brush is so sad, I need to get a new one Now use a dotting tool and add in a few red dots inbetween the tinsels Finally dab some holographic glitter over the entire nail to finish the design Once your done, don’t forget to go over with top coat for a lasting finish
