Tutorial Tuesday: Christmas Eve Reindeer

Hey everyone! It's christmas eve! (now technically christmas day) I completely forgot to post this last christmas tutorial but I really want to go to sleep and wake up to christmas so it's only going to be a short post, and I haven't numbered the steps but hopefully you can work it out! Merry christmas everyone

The base for these nails is MASH - White, and I used Barry M - Red, Barry M - Red Glitter, Barry M -Mushroom and the black Barry M nail art pen.

Step 1: Paint your nails white 
Step 2: Using the brush from the bottle, paint a half circle in brown at the tip of your nails
Step 3: Paint a smaller half circle on top of the previous one using the same technique
Step 4: Using a dotting tool or brush (or a Barry M white nail art pen) draw the eyes and the base for the nose 
Step 5: Paint over the nose using red nail polish and red glitter over the top
Step 6: Paint black dots in the centre of the white for the eyes using a Barry M black nail art pen or dotting tool
Step 7: Using the nail art pen or dotting tool/brush paint on the antlers
Step 8: Finish off with a topcoat to seal in your design

Have a good christmas everyone!
