Festive Nail Designs

I have been getting onto a festive mood as it gets closer and closer to Christmas and I have been busy painting my nails with lots of fun festive designs. 


First up are these snowman nails. I really love this design as it is really fun to wear and quick and easy to do. To create this design I painted my nails white then used a dotting tool to add the features, I also used a fine glitter top coat to add a little bit of sparkle.


These santa suit nails are great for christmas and are a really easy to do. They do take a little longer as you have to wait for each layer to dry before painting on the next. To start I painted my nails with a red polish, then when it had dried I painted a white stripe down the middle. When the white polish had dried I painted a black stripe across and then when that had dried I used a dotting tool to paint on the belt with a gold polish. 


I really like this design as it is simple but festive and I think it looks lovely on the nails. This design was quick to do, first I painted my nails with a white polish. Then when that had dried I used a dotting tool to paint on the holly with a green polish and then used the dotting tool and a red polish to paint on the berries.


This design can be made as colourful as you want with lots of different coloured lights or even just one colour. For this design I painted my nails with a white polish, then used a black polish and a dotting tool to create a line then a dotting tool and different coloured polishes to create the lights.


For this last design, some christmas gifts. You can choose any colours you want for this design and you could even do a different colour on each nail. For this design I painted on a blue base colour then when it had dried I used a white nail art pen to draw on the ribbon, you could also use a dotting tool to create the ribbon as well. 

If you recreate any of these designs send me a picture on twitter or Instagram, I would love to see them! 
Which design is your favorite? Do you have a favourite festive nail design?
