Oh Christmas tree....Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas Trees….Oh Christmas Trees…..they are seriously a staple for nail art this time of year, but we need to jazz it up a little, don’t you agree? 

  1. Gel polish (or use regular polish if you prefer) your clients nails….any colour. 
  2. Apply a glitter topcoat in the shape of a christmas tree (that would be a triangle)! 
  3. Using the nail art pen, as a dotting tool, apply silver dots randomly over the glitter triangle. 
  4. Repeat this using white and gold. 
  5. Using the nail art pen, and any colour you like (for me it is gold) draw on your tinsel, like gold rings, getting bigger as they come down the tree. don’t forget to top off your tree with a star…or a Swarovski crystal if your feeling generous.

Xmas Nail Art

 Fast and furious…that is what this festive season is like in salons all over the country. 
This step by step is your perfect solution, to give your clients something totally unique this Christmas.

  1. Gel polish your clients nails, in the colour of her choice. Top coat and wipe off inhibition layer.
  2. Buff the nails, so you remove all the shine….reassuring your client that she will end up with beautiful nails in the end. 
  3. With your top coat (must have an inhibition layer) apply creating circles randomly over the nail. Just 2 - 3 per nails. don’t over do it and Cure.
  4. Using Be Creatives Chameleon pigment (the blue looks amazing also) I have used lilac lounge lizard in this step……pat into the sticky layer of the top coat. 
  5. The nail  art pen is an amazing tool for nail art, but it is also fabulous for scratching through your pigment, remove the pigment in various patterns over the baubles.
  6. Now use your nail art pen to create a thin line of gold (or white) to hang your these baubles from your tree. 
  7. Last step - top coat to seal.
