Blogmas 2017: Day 20 – Candy Cane nail art tutorial


As I was reminded during my Christmas Quiz yesterday, the four main food groups are Candy, Candy Canes, Candy Corns and Syrup that is in the world according to Elf that is, I don’t think there are many Doctors and Dentists that would be in agreement with that.

This nail is super easy to do that requires only two colours and minimal time!

What you will need: Flat brush or masking tape (I prefer the brush), red and white nail polish.

Step one: Paint your nails white with enough coats that it becomes opaque, the reason white goes first is because the red stripes will come through more opaque when you paint them on so that one coat should be enough.

Step two: If you are using masking tape, the cut it down so that is narrow enough for your stripes, position across the nail and the paint over it. Personally I don’t like using tape as it is fiddly to apply and remove so I use the flat brush instead as it is really easy (providing you have a steady hand) to create straight even lines. Use the flat tip side of your brush to draw down the stripes and then fill them in.

If you are applying a top coat to seal in your design make sure it is completely dry before doing so otherwise the darker colour can streak in to the light colour and ruin your hard work!

Let me know in the comments below what you think of this design!

Love and (high)light✌
