My sister is going to a Xmas party tomorrow and she wanted purdy nails, so I thought I'd help her out, especially since she's a make-up noob. She likes cutesy things so I first thought of Santa but then I thought I would go more non-denominational so i decided on snowmen!
What I used: Faces Nail polish in "Siberian Nights", NYX nail art polish in "Silver glitter", black and white (Rong Xin) nail art pens, Street Wear polish in "Tangy Orange" for the carrot nose and a tooth pick for detailing. I also used Konad's clear top coat. It is amazing, this top coat! No smeary nailpolish designs! :D
First apply two coats of the dark blue.
Then draw a few random circles out with the silver
Next, draw 2 circles for the snowman in white and give him eyes, stick arms and a hat in black. If you don't have the nail art pens, you can always use normal nail polish and draw with a dotting tool or just a toothpick! I also made white dots as snowfall. ^_^
Now add a little carrot nose and a few buttons if you want with the toothpick. Then clean off the excess with a cotton bud dipped in remover.
|excuse my desk, art students are messy people|
Next just apply top coat and your cute festive design is done!
|Ain't he cute?|
There you go! A frosty little guy to keep your nails company! And finally I'm done! My internet has decided to become old and decrepit for the end of the year and has been really slow. :/ Oh, well.. Took me 2 hours but I got the pics up!
