Advent Tutorial: Christmas Tree

I can’t really believe that we’re four days in already! I’ve been planning this for so long, and it’s going to be over and done before I know it. Still, I am having so much fun sharing my Christmas-themed manicures with you!

Behind today’s door is……a Christmas tree! Baubles, tinsel, star and all :)

Advent Tutorial: Christmas Tree Nail Art

Just one tutorial for you today with six steps. It’s not too detailed but does need some drying time between steps!

Advent Tutorial: Christmas Tree Nail Art Step 1

Start by painting your nails all over in a bright or pale base colour (just not dark). I chose Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream.

Next, take a dark green polish and a paintbrush and draw the shape of a Christmas tree on your nail. The green I used was Barry M Racing Green.

Use the same green polish to fill in your outline of the tree. This might take more than one coat to get it opaque.

Once the tree has dried, take a small paintbrush and a gold polish and paint on some tinsel! The gold here is Models Own Gold Rush

Next, take a red (preferably glitter) polish and a dotting tool and dot on a bauble at the end of each of your branches. The red I used was Sally Hansen Red Carpet.

Finally, use the same gold polish with a tiny paintbrush to paint the star on the top of the tree!

And here’s my final design!

I figured you only ever have one Christmas tree in a room so I’d just do a skittles manicure with the tree as the centre of attention. I used the same gold, red and green polishes on my other nails as in the tree and then used a dotting tool at the base of each nail to create the extra dotty feature!

I hope you liked today’s advent design, and can’t wait to show you what I have planned for tomorrow!
