Branch out with easy holiday nail art

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

It's been a week of holiday nail art so far. Why am I posting it so early? Basically to give you ideas for quick and easy nail art.

If you're like me, you see something and want to recreate it... but with your own twist. So for today's holiday nail art I created a easy, yet almost three-dimensional Christmas tree on an almost starlit base.

Let's take a look. 

I started out with two coats of Fancy Gloss My Sailor. This shade has become my "go to blue"polish.

Then I added a coat of Dance Legend 607 top coat to add a sparkle that would appear as a quiet, starry night. 

I used a acrylic paints to add the base of snow and the tree. Gray paint was added first. Then, using varying shades of greens I created the tree. I added some white paint for the flocking effect and different colors of paint for the decorations. I had some metal star-shaped studs so they were perfect for the topper on the tree and as an accent on the other nails. I topped it off with a coat of HK Girl to seal in the design and add lots of glossy shine.

Who knows what I will come up with for the next holiday nail art. Sometimes it is hard to come up with something that I a.) actually think I can pull off and b.) is remotely creative.

In the meantime, feel free to post your holiday inspired nails on the Set in Lacquer Facebook page.

These polishes were previously sent to me for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Please note that computer monitors may display colors differently.
