Samantha’s Mid-Week Inspiration: Christmas Pudding Nails

Im back with some mid-week inspiration and with Christmas fast approaching I thought I would begin my Christmas nail art adventure! So this week I have created Christmas pudding nails. As always I have put together a step-by-step tutorial to show you all how I created this design, so you can recreate this at home!

What will you need?

All you will need for this nail art is Nail Varnish in Faithful, Untold and Rampage. You will also need a Top Coat and Precision Ink in Scribe. I used a nail art dotting tool to add the holly detail so you may want to add this to your list of things you will need as well!

Step-By-Step Tutorial:

Step 1: Paint all nails in two coats of Faithful. This will act as the base for the nails and I will create the nail art over this base.

Step 2: Using Precision Ink in Scribe create the Icing detail. I decided to do this at the cuticle end of my nail, however you could also create it on the tip of the nail.

Step 3: Using Untold and Rampage on a dotting tool, create the holly detailing near the cuticle of your nail.

Step 4: Finally once all nails are dry paint a top coat over all your nails. This will prevent the nails from chipping and seal in the nail art.
