Influenced by the holiday spirit, I went on a search for the perfect Christmas manicure. Preferably one with details that remind me of snow or Christmas lights.
So when pinning my ass off on Pinterest, I came across this one. A manicure that looks like a knitted winter sweater. I fell so in love with it that I decided to try it myself.
First of all, what do we need?
A clear base coat (and top coat). Some of our favorite colors that are similar to each other or – on the contrary – highly contrasting. For the decoration on your nails, you’ll need toothpicks. And if you are a messy DIY’er, it’s best to be prepared and take a napkin and some swaps to wipe off excess nail polish.
2. Put on the clear base coat.
3. Put on one or two layers of your favorite color.
4. Dip the toothpick in the white nail polish.
5. Unleash your inner creative monster.
Extra tip: if you don’t have steady hands yourself and aren’t able to do both sides equally well, hey that’s ok. Just invite a friend for a real nail makeover. That way, you can each draw with your best hand and both have a Christmas manicure that turns heads – in a good way.
