An Easy Festive Nail Art Design Tutorial.

I am terrible when it comes to nail art, I don't own a nail art pen (which I will be investing in soon) but I like to try different things on my nails. I was blog reading and saw a few people blogging about Reindeer nails which looked fab, but when I tried it looked ... well... not fab...AT ALL! So I tried to think of an easy festive nail art solution. Father Christmas' or Santa's hat.

Start with a base coat of your choice, I chose a polish from Maybeline in shade 669.....

Then chose a red shade (my mini OPI) and using the nail polish brush paint a rough triangle, it doesn't have to be perfect.....

Then take a regular hair pin/ hair grip and unfold it like this.....

Dunk the end of the hair clip into a white shade of nail polish and add a dot to the top of your Santa hat and and dot around the bottom edge (a hair clip is such a good tool for making perfect dots on your nails) and here is what it looks like.....

What do you think?
