The other day I was browsing through Shutter Stock for some nail inspiration. Seriously this is such a great place to find inspiration! I came across a really cute Red Knitted Sweater that I thought would translate nicely into nail art. I'm not sure it completely came out how I was imagining, but I'm pleased with it!
I used Orly Candy Cane Lane as my base which is a super glossy crelly red from the Orly 2010 Holiday Collection. This was my first time using this polish and I really like it! Two easy coats. The design is two reindeer, two evergreen trees and a snowflake on my thumb!
For the details, all I did was take my needle point dotting tool and Milani White On The Spot and create dots following the pattern on the sweater. I like how my 4 fingers came out, but my thumb is another story. I got the top half of the snowflake, but I didn't clean my dotting tool enough on the bottom half so it doesn't look even at alll.
You may notice my nails are super nubs right now. When I was wearing my Cutest Santa's Ever nails I got a major chip on my index nail. I had to file them down as short as they can be without bleeding. So I'll be rocking the nubbins in my next few posts! I like short nails, but these are suppaaa short.
What do you think of this design? Would you try something like this? Do you wear any knitted sweaters like this around Christmas?
