Christmas Nails - Santa and his Little Helpers

It's Decemeber and Christmas is almost here. I don't celebrate Christmas but I couldn't help do some Chistmas inspired nail art. Over the past few year I have always seen other bloggers do christmas inspired nails and have always wanted to do some myself. So this year you will be having more than one Christmas inspired mani. I hope they inspire you and maybe you will chose to do one of these designs for Christmas yourselves for those who celebrate it. 

So for my first Xmas post we have the nail art which I was looking forward to doing the most. Santa and his Little Helpers. I am so pleased with how these turned out. Exactly how I imagined them! 

Lets take a look...

I used black striping tape for the belts on the elf costumes because I was a wuss and didn't wanna get a wobbly thin line and ruin it. Haha! 

Polishes I used:
Duri Rejuvacote 
OPI Jade is the New Black
Barry M Blood Orange
Sally Hansen Lightening
Sally Hansen Raven
Barry M Gold Foil
H&M Matte Topcoat

I also used:
2x fine nail art brush
Dotting tool
Striping tape

The santa costume is pretty easy, a red base with a white line down the middle. Then a black line across for the belt and then yellow square for the buckle. And your done. 
The elf costumes, i started with a half moon green base. Then painted on the red spikes for the collar. Then i used the dotting tool to put on the yellow buttons. Added the black striping tape for the belt and used gold polish for the buckle. And your done. 

I am super proud of these. They are exactly how I imagined and to be honest they are my favourites so far! Granted I have only done these so far but still!! 

Hope you like them and thanks for reading!
