This Christmas tree nail art is quick & easy to recreate yet it captures the festive spirit perfectly. All you need is a toothpick, 4 nail polishes in different shades and a little bit of patience to draw a tiny Christmas tree on one nail as shown above. The tutorial below demonstrates how to do it flawlessly.
1. Apply two coats of nude nail polish on each nail. Let it dry. I used OPI Don’t Pretzel My Buttons.
2. Dip the end of a toothpick into dark green polish, then dot it on your nail. Form the shape of a Christmas tree with dots.
3. Wipe the end of a toothpick and dip it into metallic gold or shimmer polish. Then dot it on your nail in between the green dots. The golden dots represent baubles/decorations.
4. Repeat step 3 with deep red nail polish. Apply a top coat over your festive nail and let it dry.
What I also like about this manicure is that it looks great on short nails (like mine). Not to mention you can re-create it in whatever colours you like. For example, dark nails with the tiny Christmas tree in light shades would also look great.
