Advent Tutorial: Presents

It’s the weekend, hooray! What are all you lovely people up to today then? Painting your nails I hope!

So onto the Christmas Nail Art Advent Calendar…what do you think is behind the door today? It’s a wrapped up Christmas present!

Advent Tutorial: Christmas Present Nail Art

This is probably the easiest nail art design of the whole lot, but I didn’t want to make it too detailed and lose the nice simplicity of it. All you need it your favourite coloured wrapping paper in polish form, a polish for your ribbon and a small paintbrush.

Advent Tutorial: Christmas Present Nail Art Step 1

Start by painting your nail all over with your favourite wrapping paper polish. This is Barry M Blackberry.

Next, using your small paintbrush and your ribbon nail polish, paint a little bow shape in the centre of your nail. Start with the loops, then do the tails. This silver is Models Own Sterling Silver.

Finally, paint the ribbons coming in for the edges of your nail to meet the bow.

See how easy it is?! In the finished manicure below, I’ve shown you four different colour combinations you can try. Why not match yours to the wrapping you’re using this year?
