Preparation: Supplies Needed
Painting Christmas jumpers on your nails is a fun and creative way to get in the festive spirit! If you’re planning on trying this trend for yourself, it’s important that you have all of the supplies necessary beforehand. To help make sure you’re equipped with everything needed for success, here is a guide to the essential supplies before starting your Christmas jumper nail design.
Begin by gathering up some colourful nail polishes in red, green and white. These colours are best for creating the most realistic looking designs but feel free to choose any shades you like. You will also need top coat and base coat polish to ensure your design lasts as long as possible. Additionally, it may be helpful to have some nail art brushes or dotting tools available to add the more intricate details to your nails.
Choose one nail color as the main color of your sweater – this can be anything from red and green to pink and blue, although festival is best! Make sure all of your nails are evenly coated with no streaks or chunks left behind. Apply two coats if necessary, making sure each coat has dried before applying the next. When finished, check that each nail has been fully covered in the desired color before moving onto step 2.
To begin, use a thin brush or nail art pen to draw out six diamonds onto your nails with white polish, all pointing to the middle of the nail. If you don’t have a thin brush or nail art pen, no worries. You can also use a toothpick instead! Make sure the points of the diamonds are sharp and that the lines are even. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect – just try your best! Once all the outlines of the diamonds are painted, fill them in.
Once they are filled in, paint a dot in the middle using the same white polish.
Finally, paint little arrows in-between each set of diamonds.
With all the hard work done, you can now add the finishing touches that make the design truly special. To give it some extra sparkle, use glitters or rhinestones. A topcoat will keep everything in place and make sure that all of those details stay intact for longer – so don’t forget this important step!
