Kick-starting the festive season with this delicate Holiday nail art! As a base for this design I used the beautiful vintage pink Diorific Lively from the new Dior Holiday 2018 collection. To bring out the silver shimmer of the polish I added white holiday themed patterns. This, in fact, was the easiest part of this manicure – thank heaven for the new Christmas stickers!
To create the intricate holiday patterns I used white Snowflakes and Christmas Sweater stickers and silver Glitter Stripes stickers and small silver studs to add a touch festive sparkle. Even though, at the beginning I did not have a clear idea for the design, at the end it all worked out beautifully and I’m very happy with this Holiday nail art!
That’s the great benefit of the SoNailicious Stickers – even if you have a creative block, you’d still be able to do an amazing nail design – the sticker patterns will do the job for you! All you need is to select the perfect base for your manicure. And here you have 100% creative freedom! Because all SoNailicious Stickers are opaque enough to use on any colour.
Whether you use dark blue, pink or red polish – the intricate white patterns will remain white and gold will remain gold! Have you ever tried to paint white snowflakes over dark polish? Then you know the challenge is real and you will appreciate the supreme opacity of these white Christmas stickers.
Ok, that’s enough about stickers ;) I put a lot of thought into developing this new sticker range and obviously, I’m very proud of the result! If you’ve already tried them, you know how great they are. Now without further ado…
