Christmas Nail Art #3: Ornaments

Time for another nail art for my Christmas nail art series. Today I present to you my christmas ornament nail art. This is a super easy design and you can customize it in any way you want! I chose very simple patterns to decorate my ornaments. It looks somewhat like a french nail doesn't it?


Here are the Christmas Nail Art that I've done:
Christmas Nail Art #1: Snow Globe
Christmas Nail Art #2: The Nutcracker 

Check out after the jump for materials and tutorial!

Materials:
  • Rose-Gold Glitter Polish
    • Julep "Sienna"
  • Green Glitter Polish
    • Julep "Cindy"
  • Blue Glitter Polish
    • Julep "Ivy"
  • Red Glitter Polish
    • Julep "Scarlett"
  • Yellow Gold Glitter Polish
    • Julep "Felcity"
  • Silver Polish
    • OPI "It's Totally Fort Worth It"
  • Black Polish
    • Julep "Brandt"
  • Nail Art Brush
  • Nail Dotter


Instructions:
  1. Paint your base with a rose gold polish and allow it to dry. 
  2. Next use a blue glitter polish or any polish of your choice and create a large circle. With a nail art brush, use the curvature of your cuticle as a guide and create a outline of the circle. Use either the polish brush and nail art brush to fill it in.
  3. Again with a clean nail art brush, create a little silver rectangle for the top of the ornament.
  4. Using black polish outline the ornament and top. Then create a straight line to connect to the top and draw a small bow to finish the look.
  5. With a yellow gold polish, create a pattern within the ornament. Feel free to find images online for inspiration! 
There you go, a very simple nail art using some of the featured polish in December's Julep Maven box
