Step-by-Step Nail Art Friday - Elegant Christmas 2016 Nail Art

Some Press Sample* and Gifted Polish** Featured

Hello lovely readers! In this special edition of step-by-step nail art, I featured all indie nail polish and art brands to achieve an elegant Christmas manicure.


The Base
I wanted to stay away from the traditional red and green Christmas colors, so I chose silver and black as my base colors. Dear Santa by Polished for Days  is an elegant holographic silver polish full of multichrome flakies, and Little Black Dress by Glisten & Glow** is a classic black creme.

The Accent Nails
For the accent nails, I chose stamping plate 04 from Cici & Sisi. This plate features tiny pine trees that are perfect for a Christmas manicure. I also used a black stamping creme by Moonflower Polish* and To Have and to Holo by M Polish to color coordinate my stamping images with by base colors. I transferred my stamped images with a soft stamper by Fab Ur Nails

I finished off the look with a quick drying glossy top coat.
