Christmas Nails- Father Christmas Hat

 As much as I love nail art I’m not very good at it. I need basic shapes that are easy to create with no tools which is why when I saw this popping up on Pinterest I knew it was one I had to recreate. I used three coloured nail polishes (although you could skip the base colour), a glitter polish and a top coat.

 I started with a base coat as my nails are a little stained and then used the red to paint triangles on my nails. One my middle one I tried to use sticky tape as guide but that didn’t go to plan although I am sure you can get that to work far better than I did! I done the other four fingers free hand and it was pretty easy.

 When they were all dry I simply added white nail polish to the rim and end of the had, added some silver glitter for extra Christmas Sparkle and finished with a quick dry top coat to seal all the layers together. If you don’t have much time you can skip the silver glitter and the base colour.

I really like these santa hat nails and they are super easy to do, just give them a go! I have another (slightly harder) nail art post coming up soon which I love even more than these!

Have you given nail art a go this month? What did you create?

    This is adorable! I'd love to be good at nail art but I might as well face the facts and admit I'm terrible. I might give this a go tonight though!
