TUTORIAL: Abstract Christmas Tree Nail Art

The Christmas season is almost upon us and I wanted to show you all how to make a very simple nail art look that is very festive and incredibly effortless to make.

Here is what I came up with and you can trust me that it'll be a breeze when you recreate this mani.

WHAT YOU NEED:

What you need for this manicure is a stunning glitter green base nail polish, I chose Zoya Merida.

Also a green metallic nail polish for the accents, I used Kiko Lawn Green.

I also used Seche Vite Top Coat as the sealing agent that glues all the studs on my nails.

I used simple colorful round nail studs that represent the tree decorations.  Since every Christmas tree needs a big shining star on top I used gold star studs for that, I got them both from Born Pretty Store.

Don't forget some sticky tape to control the brushing part of the nail art.

 

Here you can see how I applied the sticky tape. I added it only on one half of the nail. After I was done with that half, I removed it and then applied it to the other half. I naturally applied some top coat in between it, with that I ensured that the existing nail art didn't get destroyed by the sticky tape.

STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL:

Step 1: Apply the base nail polish.

Step 2: Apply the sticky tape on half of the nail. Then with the classic brush stroke technique make strokes that start from your nail edge that ends at the beginning of the tape.

Step 3: Do the same on the other side of the nails. As said before, add some top coat in between the steps so the nail art already created does not smudge.

Step 4: Apply the nail studs. I choose to make a rainbow line in the middle, crowned with a star. Feel free to apply them randomly as the real tree decorations are. Don't forget a generous top coat or gel top coat, to keep all the studs in place.

 

I love how these turned out! They are simple, classic and effortless to make and not too colorful - a great manicure to wear in the Winter season without it being too gaudy.
