Fairy Light Nails
Celebrations without fairy lights? Not possible. Paint your nail white for the base. Use a thin brush to make the black rope. Add small droppers of red, green and yellow nail color on the black rope as your lights. To go pro artist, add a hint of the white nail for the lightening effect.
Snow Flake Nails
Apply your favorite blue color as the base. Then pour some white nail color on a plastic plate. Use a thin brush or a paper and dip it in the white nail paint. Use it to make 3 intersecting lines. Add short angled lines at the end of the white lines and your snowflake is done.
Jingle Bell Nails
This is for girls who are suckers of the ombre art. You will need a golden nail color for the base, a red nail glitter as the ombre, and a sponge to get the gradient effect. Use a corrector or nail polish remover on a Q-tip to clear the sides. Finish off with a top clear coat.
