Candy Cane & Santa Nail Art Tutorial

You can’t beat a character nail art at Christmas. I combined the classic Santa accent nail with a candy cane stripe to create this nail art design.

What will you need?

All you will need to create this look is a red, green, white, black and nude nail varnish, a dotting tool and some striping tape.

The nail varnish shades I used were Illamasqua Throb & Viridian and Avon Magic Effects Matte polish in White and Black. 

Step-By-Step Tutorial:

Christmas Nail Art Tutorial

Step 1: Begin by painting all nails in a base coat of matte white polish, apart from the ring finger, which you should add a nude base to.

Step 2: Next, once everything is dry, take a dotting tool and create the Santa character on the ring finger.

Step 3: Taking the striping tape, place diagonally across the nail and take the green and red polishes in turn to fill in the gaps.

Step 4: Peel of the striping tape and add a topcoat if you wish.

And there you have your fun Santa and Candy Cane nail art.
