So I did promise you one more bonus Christmas manicure and here it is – Santa Claus is coming to town!
It’s that time of night now when bedtime is immanent, Santa is on his way and Christmas morning is only a few hours away.
When I first started thinking about doing my nail art advent calendar, I sketched out the designs I wanted to do. But in the end I had one more design that I had available days. That is the reason for this post. This manicure is the one that got left behind.
I couldn’t bear not to share it with you though so I thought what better time to post it that Christmas Eve, as a freeze-frame of what Santa will be doing right now!
I started by painting my nail all over with a pale blue polish. When that had completely dried, I used a make-up sponge and three shades of blue polish to sponge a gradient over my nail to simulate the deep night sky. Next, I used a tiny paintbrush and a silver polish to paint the little moon onto my ring finger. Finally I used my tiny paintbrush and a black polish to paint the shape of the sleigh and reindeer sweeping through the sky!
Every year we like to track Santa’s journey thoughout the world dropping off presents, and would really recommend the website www.noradsanta.org which shows you where he is, where he’s going and how many presents he has delivered so far!
