Christmas Nail Art: Snowman

Here's my 2nd Christmas nail art -- a snowman! My first was the Christmas Nail Art: Gift Boxes that I entered in a nail art challenge. I'm sorry it took me awhile to post another Christmas nail design. I broke my thumbnail when I got back from a trip last month so I filed down all my other nails. I took this time to let my nails rest from nail polish in preparation for this month's project of coming up with Christmas nail art at least twice a week.

Here's how the base color looks bare:

This is 2 coats China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le. Application was easy and opaque in 2 layers.

I first thought of coming up with a design with the usual Christmas colors but I really wanted to paint a Snowman so I opted for a bluer shade for the base color. Again, I used my ring fingers as accent nails.

This snowman has no name!

I used the sponging technique to create the illusion of snow on the tips of my nails and randomly painted dots of different sizes to make it appear that it's snowing. I personally think a snowman is a simple freehand nail art design. Paint 2 circles for the body, add a hat, a scarf, a pointed nose, and twigs for arms!

I used different colors for the scarfs and hat accent. Sorry, the nose smudged when I applied a top coat. I guess I got excited and forgot to let everything dry completely first.

We don't have snow here in the Philippines but it would be nice to able to experience making a snowman. I wonder how hard it is to make one.

There may not be snow where I live, but it's snowing on my nails and I made 2 chubby snowmen!

I enjoyed doing this Christmas nail art. I find it simple, dainty, and fun to look at. I hope you'll like this too. :)

  6. Thanks so much ladies! The only way I could make a snowman is through my nails. :/

  7. So cute! I love how they are festive without being overly cheesy :D

    Where I live we have a ton of snow, but it's so dry that the snow doesn't even stick together! It's just a powdery mess :(

  8. That's too bad NorthernArtist. :( Snow without a chance to create a jolly snowman.
