Christmas Nail Art: Christmas Tree, Candy Cane, and Gingerbread

Press Samples Included


I created some festive Christmas nail art to correspond with my post about Old Factory candles in the Happy Holidays Collection, and I wanted to share more photos and details about them!


Christmas Trees were inspired by the ugly Christmas sweaters, but I actually think they are cute. These of course, are really inspired by fair isle knitting and some Scandinavian prints that you see at Christmas time. I used a base of Palate Polish (review coming soon) and hand painted the white designs in acrylic paint and the gold in Maybelline Bold Gold.

Candy Canes were what I wore for Christmas day last year. I alternated it a little bit this year though. I first panted China Glaze White On White on my middle, ring finger and thumb, and Ruby Pumps on my pointer and pinky fingers. I then created stripes with the opposite color and added a stripe of China Glaze Silver Lining for some sparkle.

Finally, for the gingerbread look, I painted China Glaze Lug Your Designer Baggage and added some frosting drips in an off white Color Club Mod in Manhattan.

I love Christmas and all the fun nail designs that come of it! I feel like I never have enough time to do all the designs I have in my head, and hopefully I can squeeze in a few more before Christmas day actually comes. I hope you like these! Don't forget to enter the giveaway for the candles that inspired these nail art looks here! All you have to do is comment on that post by 11:59pm on December 31st! Thanks for reading and happy holidays!
