Nail art: Christmas Jumper|Fairisle #NOTD

28 November 2013 0 comments

Hiii :)

Firstly, there's 1 day left (!!!) of my giveaway, please go ahead and enter to get some Asian skincare :)

I have a cute, festive nail tutorial for you today, it looks relatively complicated but it's really quite simple and therapeutic as it's mostly geometric shapes and patterns, no portraits or real artwork!

What you will need:

♥ Nail polishes in Pale Blue, White, Red, and a clear topcoat

♥ Acrylic paints in White, Red and Blue

♥ A fine brush, whether it be a liner brush, nail art brush or paintbrush.

♥ A little time and a steady hand!

1. Paint your nails with the 3 base colours. Don't worry if it's a little shoddy like my white, everything will come together at the end!

2. Start painting on your design. Use dots, hearts, zig zags and stripes, and possibly include an awful "reindeer" like mine! You can always refer to Christmas jumpers on Google for some nailspiration :)
(And don't worry if the paint goes on a bit blotchy, just be as precise as you can manage and the final step will smooth out any mishaps!)

3. Once you're finished and happy, and the paints are dry, seal in with a clear polish. The topcoat automagically corrects any blotchiness or bumpiness and smooths out your design.

And there, fun, festive fair isle nails to be wearing this winter!

Hope you enjoyed, have an amazing day :)
