Candy Cane Nail Art!

In China Glaze, Idiot's Guide: Nail Art, Nails, OPI by Jacki9 Comments

Good morning, readers! Merry Christmas Eve! Today, I have some simple holiday nail art for you that I created by following another tutorial in Idiot’s Guides: Nail Art that I reviewed yesterday! If you missed that post, check it out HERE! There were a handful of Christmas tutorials but this one was calling out to me the most ever since I opened the book.

  •  I followed Emily’s tutorial in the book by starting with a base of OPI Alpine Snow.
  • Once it was completely dry (I used a quick drying top coat to speed it up), I used striping tape and placed them onto the nails.
  • I alternated with OPI Over & Over A-Gwen and China Glaze Starboard for the red and green stripes.
  • Before the polishes dried, I used tweezers to carefully peel back up the strips.
  • I used Seche Vite on top of the stripes and then decided to add some sparkle with China Glaze Fairy Dust. 
  • KBShimmer Clearly On Top was used to seal everything in.

What do you think? I think they turned out cute and was happy with them. I had a hard time cleaning up the red around the cuticles, though, so that took a while. Thanks so much for reading!
Merry Christmas to all of you that celebrate! I will probably take a few days off from posting.
