How to do Christmas Bauble Nail Art

Preparing the nails for creative nail art is one of the most important steps when achieving a professional-looking manicure.

Firstly, it is important to make sure your nails are clean and free from any dirt or oils, as this will affect how well your nail art sticks. Start by filing and shaping your nails before using a cuticle stick to push back the cuticles. Use a buffing block to further shape and smooth out any ridges on the surface of your nails.

Step 1

To begin, start by painting your nail with a dark green base colour, we love essie Off Tropic, representing the tree the bauble is hanging on.



Step 2

Next use a thin brush dipped in white polish to paint the centre of each nail with small circles. Use a dotting tool or toothpick for extra accuracy when creating these small circles. This is so when you paint the red bauble it will really stand out against the green.


Step 3

Once all your nails have been completed with white circles, make sure they are completely dry, then take the same thin brush used before and dip it into red polish this time. Cover the white circle with your red polish.


Step 4

Wth a tiny paintbrush paint a gold line coming down from the top of your nail to join the bauble. Then paint a little rectangle to reflect the top of the bauble.


Step 5

Using the gold polish again, decorate your bauble with shapes or patterns such as stars and stripes.

By following these easy steps, you can have beautiful bauble nail art in no time at all. The possibilities are endless when it comes to customizing the look; different colours, glitter and even gems can be used for extra impact. Why not give yourself a manicure break and indulge in some creative fun?
