So for this year’s Christmas nails, I decided on some snowman face nails. I decided to use a glittery white textured nail paint for the background colour, as I felt it would be a pretty way to mimic the texture of real snow. The polish I used is called ‘Lady’ from Barry M’s Royal Textured Glitter collection, which is one of my favourite nail polishes.
I started by painting this on all nails. As I forgot to use an opaque white underneath before I started, I needed to use 3 coats to get the right amount of coverage.
On the ring fingers I then added 2 black rhinestones to each to make eyes. On the other nails I used a medium sized dotting tool and some black acrylic paint to make the eyes.
Then I used the same black and a small dotting tool to add dots to make the mouth for the snowman on each nail. I apologise for the uneven length of my middle finger nails in comparison to the others. I find the nails on this finger are always prone to breaking easily. The one on my right hand got torn off when I was going outside and the wind blew the door out of my hand. I made myself feel better by telling myself that snowmen come in all sizes just like people lol.
I finished the design off by using an orange acrylic paint and a thin brush to paint a small carrot triangle nose onto each nail. I then tried to add some details to the noses with a slightly darker shade of paint.
