Tutorial Thursday: Santa

Hey everyone! Just a quick tutorial post today for these cute Santa nails that I did for Barry M. As I mentioned on tuesday, I have too many tutorials to only post on tuesdays before Christmas so I'm going to do both tuesday and thursday tutorials until Christmas day.  I'm so tired after having been doing nails for the past 8 hours (!!!) and editing photos. It's now 2:40am and I desperately want to go to bed, I need to learn to stop leaving my posts until the last minute! Anyway, the full post will be after the jump

And now for the tutorial!

Step 1: Paint your nails with Barry M - Lychee
Step 2: Using Barry M - Bright Red and a small brush or toothpick, paint red on the top third of your nail
Step 3: Using a toothpick or dotting tool, line the red using Barry M - Matt White
Step 4: Using the Barry M - White Nail Art Pen, paint on Santa's beard
Step 5: Using the Barry M - Black Nail Art Pen paint on the eyes
Step 6: Paint on a nose using Barry M - Dragon Fruit and finish off with a coat of topcoat to seal in your design, and you're done!

  1. Wow, just so cute!!! Eight hours of doing nails is a second job!! You put a lot into this blog - it is appreciated! Have a good holiday season :)

  2. These are lovely! So cute and easy enough so that each nail will look the same, but detailed enough so that the Santa is instantly recognisable.


  3. LOVE :D Gonna use this tutorial to go with the crochet santa I made!

  4. C'est adorable ! Ils sont vraiment trop mignons ces Pères Noël. Bravo !
