DIY Santa Hat, Candy Cane and Christmas Tree Nails

See also

Christmas is just around the corner, literally, and if you're just lounging around the house like me, why not paint your nails one last time for Christmas. This time I couldn't decide what design I wanted to do, so I just picked my favorite three and put them together. This is a Santa hat, candy cane, and Christmas tree DIY nail art article.

First I tipped all of my nails red except for the middle finger. Next I underlined the red with white. One two of my nails I did a thick line for Santa's hat and then the other two, just a simple white line. I then drew two candy canes on two of my nail, I chose the pointer finger and pinky and finished the candy cane by adding red stripes. On my Santa hat nails I drew a red line, fairly close to the edge of my nail and added a white dot to finish it off.

On my middle finger I made a Christmas tree. First I tipped my nail with a shimmery gold just because I liked it. Next, I started from the bottom and worked up to make the tree. Now I am not the artist so to make these easy all I did was dots. I started with four and worked my way up in a triangle to make the tree. If you do this right, it should look like a tree. I topped it off with a little silver star and you're finished!

These nails are super easy and really cute and perfect for a finishing Christmas nail! For these nails I used a small paint brush and it made the whole process really easy. Don't forget to prep your nails and add a finishing coat! Have fun and Merry Christmas!
