Tutorial Tuesday: Christmas Lights

Hey everyone! Just a quick tutorial tuesday today for these cute christmas light nails. I'm so excited that it's nearly christmas, and I've somehow managed to actually get all the presents I need to get. None of which I had got this time last year, so it's definitely an improvement! Tutorial steps will be after the jump

I used a base of MASH - White, then I used the Barry M - Black Nail Art Pen for the wire, then I used Barry M - Bright Red, OPI - The It Colour, and OPI - Green-wich Village for the lights, and white acrylic paint for the reflections. All topped off with a coat of Seche Vite

Step 1: Paint your nails with a base colour of white
Step 2: Using a Barry M - Black Nail Art Pen paint on lines for the wire
Step 3: Using a small brush and Barry M - Bright Red paint on the lights spaced out across the wire
Step 4: Do the same as above with green
Step 5: Do the same as above with yellow
Step 6: using white acrylic paint or nail polish and a small brush, paint on the reflections of the lights. Then finish off with a topcoat to seal in your design!
