Christmas is a bright and cheerful time, when red and green unabashedly mingle with one another, spurred on by glittery gold and silver. Don't make your nails miss out on all the fun. Pull out your bright, fun, sparkly nail polish and celebrate the season by turning your fingertips into miniature Christmas trees, reindeer and pretty homages to the Christmas colours.
Step 1: After applying a top coat, paint your nails red.
Step 2: Stick two strips of washi tape over the base of your nail, forming a triangle.
Step 3: Form a Christmas tree by sticking down four pieces of angled washi tape.
Step 4: Paint the uncovered area with teal nail polish.
Step 5: Starting at the bottom, peel off the strips of washi tape, one by one. Make sure to do this before the polish dries.
Step 6: Form a triangle at the base of your nail — near your cuticle — using strips of washi tape.
Step 7: Paint the uncovered area with the lightest shade of green, then peel off the washi tape and allow the polish to dry.
Step 8: Once the polish has dried, make a second triangle beneath the first using the washi tape.
Step 9: Paint the uncovered area with the second-lightest shade of green and peel off the washi tape.
Step 10: Place the washi tape over the second layer of the tree.
Step 11: Paint the uncovered area beneath the washi tape with the darkest shade of green, then peel the washi tape away.
Step 12: Repeat the process on the rest of the fingernails.
Step 1: After applying a base coat, paint your nails with a pale blue nail polish.
Step 2: Working from just beneath the centre to the tip, paint semicircles or oblongs on each of your nails using the brown polish.
Step 3: Using a toothpick and black nail polish, carefully draw antlers at the top of each brown area.
Step 4: Using the same toothpick and black polish, draw eyes.
Step 5: Finally, using the very tip of your brush, paint four black noses and one red nose (for Rudolph). Add a top coat if you like.
Step 1: After applying a base coat, paint your nails in three different shades of polish.
Step 2: Place strips of washi tape diagonally across your fingernails and vertically across your thumbnail.
Step 3: Paint the uncovered part of your nails with the gold glitter nail polish.
Step 4: Remove the washi tape, finish off with a top coat and you're done.
