Oh. Em. Gee. I love these nails. I wore them for 3 days and have been gushing over them ever since they were finished. Ok, I'm calm. Let me show you my super cute Santas!
How adorable are these?! I was sketching out a bunch of Santa's and once I came up with these I put them on my nails immediately. I started out with 2 coats of Milani White On The Spot. Then I created a little crescent moon in Barielle Skinny Dip right near my cuticle. Then I create a rounded triangle tip in Sally Hansen Rapid Red and filled that in.
I added the nose in Rapid Red by doing one big dot then two smaller dots on either side then going back with a striping brush to connect the outside of the dots and fill in what was left! I did black dots with a black creme for the eyes then added a white dot and did a small line in white for his eyebrows. His pink chubby cheeks were created with my largest dotting tool and by mixing the teeniest drop of Rapid Red in with Skinny Dip. I did his smile with a striping brush in black and then added his belt and the buckle in Sally Hansen Celeb City.
Gah these are too cute for words to me. I'm going to haul out my parents video camera and make a tutorial for these. Even though that was a crazy long explanation, they are actually super easy to create! I did them on both hands and they looked essentially identical. Awesome!
Well what do you think of my supa cute santas? My friends said they reminded them of those Russian nesting dolls because my nails are different sizes!
I'm so in the Christmas spirit right now. My house is pretty much completely decorated and I would listen to Christmas music alllll day long if I could, oh wait, I do! haha!
