12 Days of Naillion: Day 4 – Christmas Lights Nails

On the fourth  day of Christmas my true love gave to me some tangled up bulbs on a wire. It’s time to replicate those pretty shiny little christmas lights also known as mini rave/strobe/disco lights on your fingers.

What you’ll need/what I used: L-R: Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle (used as basecoat and strengthener), Seche Vite Topcoat, Barry M 66 Matt White Nail Varnish, Black Striper, Barry M 150 Red Glitter Nail Varnish, Barry M 290 Spring Green Nail Varnish, Ciate 074 Big Yellow Taxi Nail Varnish, Ciate Magic Carpet Purple Glitter Nail Varnish, Ciate Glass Slipper Blue Glitter Nail Varnish, W.I.P Festival Nail Varnish and toothpicks.


Step one: Paint your nails one thin coat of basecoat to protect the natural nails and to prevent staining.


Step two: Paint all your nails a white colour. (This may require two coats)


Step three: Once all the white has dried paint a layer of glitter polish.


Step four: Now for the fun part time to draw the Christmas lights wire. Take your black striper or toothpick in black polish and draw twirly lines across all the nails, but make sure to connect the lines joining to the next nail. I mean you can’t have disconnected Christmas lights now can you? You can be as twirly as you look add loops in whatever you want the twirlier the better. (twirly is a great word) twirl. twirly. swirl. swirlytwirly.


Step five: Then take your dotting tool or toothpick and dip it into all fun random colours and dot all sorts of colours onto your swirly whirly wire.


Step six: Once the lights have dried go back and add some glitter to some of the lights to make your lights twinkle.


Step seven: Once all nails have completely dried finish with a fast-drying topcoat to protect your designs and prevent them from chipping.DSC_3402And that’s it! That’s the fourth day of 12 days of Naillion. You now have the twinkliest Christmas lights on your nails. Just be careful you don’t blind someone and give someone epilepsy with your fingers.
