When festive fever hits, no one judges each other for getting carried away with the spirit of the season. If you want to wear your novelty jumper every day in December – knock yourself out. Chocolate for breakfast? It would be rude not to. And there’s no such thing as too many fairy lights.
So get wrapped up in all the excitement by channelling those Chrimbo vibes all the way to your talons. Part très chic and part adorable, this winter nail art design is sure to go down a treat. It will also up your smug ‘hot chocolate snap’ game! #winning
Step 1 – Perfect your base
File and buff nails until they are similar in size and shape. Take a pale blue polish and apply two coats so you have a colour block base.
Step 2 – Create the candy cane outline
Dip a cuticle stick in white nail polish and create the outline of your candy canes. To get an even design, mimic the shape of a heart.
Step 3 – Add the stripes
Once your outline is dry, take a clean cuticle stick and coat in red nail polish. Then draw even stripes along your candy cane, making sure that both sweeties are symmetrical.
Step 4 – Apply a top coat
To prevent any chipping and to add a hint of gloss, we’re finishing up with a transparent top coat.
You can choose to continue this cute candy cane design on every nail. Or go for a more stripped back look by applying candy canes on your ring fingers only alongside a sophisticated polka dot design.
