Christmas Nails- Tree themed

Well its finally time for a tutorial, Christmas themed as it is the time of the year. I love Christmas time, it seems so magical to me. The snow on the ground, being able to stay home with the family, and just the warmth of curling up in your blanket and feeling to joy. Although I'm not one for the winter time or cold, I don't include Christmas in that. The presents are nice, but what really gets me is being able to dress up and go to family dinners. Normally for dinners, my mom makes roast beef. Its one of the best in the world, although that might be because I'm biased. On Christmas Day, all of us sleep in, except my mom. She is like a kid, she can never sleep in and gets to the point she wakes us up. We have chai and sandwiches for brunch, and then open gifts. As you can see I love Christmas time.... :)

These are the nails I will be showing you how to do. Now from the picture its a little hard to tell, but its because there is so many sparkles on it. What it is, is a green tree, with yellow sparkle garland and small red ornaments on alternating fingers. It is not the shape of a tree, but it is inspired by one. What you will need:

(From left to right) China Glaze Phat Santa, China Glaze Jolly Holly, SilkLine 20 CS, OPI Nail Ency, Seche Vite Topcoat, and a dotting tool.
You could use any red and green and yellow sparkle nail polish you like, any topcoat or basecoat, and for a nail dotting tool, toothpicks and pencil tips work as well.

Apply basecoat to your nails, I am using the original nail envy by OPI. Let dry fully, and apply a second coat if needed.

Then apply the base color for the nail, I am using China Glaze's Jolly Holly. Let dry and add coats as necessary.

Now apply the silkline yellow glitter on the nail in strokes from one side of the nail to the other. Make sure its on a diagonal like shown above. Make sure this is dry fully!
Now take your red nail polish (Phat Santa from china glaze) and your dotting tool. Use a piece of paper and glob some of your polish on it. Then take your dotting tool and dot some red dots on the nails. I only did it on every other finger, but you can do it on all or not at all. Let dry.

Then add your topcoat and let dry. Your nails are done!!!

They are very shiny and ready to be shown off at your next dinner party!

That is my Christmas themed nails for you guys, don't worry more will be coming shortly.  If you have any requests questions, or company's wanting me to review their products please e-mail me here: .

Thats all for now, Aryn
