reindeer nail art, Christmas nails, festive

Christmas is days away and last night, I came up with this nail art – Cute Reindeer Nails.  Okay, admittedly, my reindeer is a bit confused and thinks it’s a puppy!!!  LOL.  I don’t have any nail art tools so relied on the nail polish brushes itself.  Anyway, it was easy peasy so you can just look at the picture and recreate it with no problem.

Okay, so it went something like this :-

1.  Base coat, rich red polish and a brown splodge on the middle finger.
2.  Pop on the antlers and two small white dots for eyes.
3.  Black dots within the white dots.
4.  Red splodge for Rudolph the reindeer nose.
5.  Glitter-fy the red.  Done!!

    I have been going crazy with my Christmas nails this year. I haven’t done anything that cute yet. I’m going to have to practice and keep my hand steady.

      @Rachel, Steady hands are a must when painting nails; let alone nail art! Seriously respect nail beauty bloggers! They are amazingly skilled!

    Such a cute manicure! I love that the reindeer is a little demented and confused. It gives it personality! And particularly impressive considering the lack of nail art brushes! xx

      @Sara-May, LOL, yes, my poor demented reindeer! Thanks lovely! I am wondering whether I should get some nail art brushes though as I have started getting into it…it’s so fun!!!
