By now, Santa's elves are probably so busy making all those toys for all the good children around the world. I wish I was a kid again so I can get what I want for Christmas! Just have to make sure I'm good! I would like to dedicate this Christmas nail art design to Santa's hardworking elves, without them, Santa wouldn't have gifts to give to all those great kids on Christmas Day!
Santa's Elves Nail Art Design by Simply Rins
Base color is 2 coats of Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau, a light blue color, and I topped it with a coat of Faceshop BL602 for a little shimmer.
The elves are hand painted with acrylic paints. I used a detailing nail art brush for this design.
The idea is to paint the elves with big heads and slim body. I think they are cute that way. I also decided to paint 2 elves on each hand. One wearing a red suit and the other, green. I would have love to paint elves on all my nails but that take a longer time, and I didn't have that much.
If you have been following my nail art blog for awhile, you might have noticed that I am fond of painting designs from the side of my nail instead of centering it on the nail. Personally, it allows me to enjoy the base color too and I think it looks interesting that way since it gives a different perspective.
For the other nails, I decided to dab different sizes of white dots to get that snowy effect. I figured since Santa and his elves live in the north pole, might as well create that scenery on this Santa's Elves nail design. I think it looked subtly nice.
I was able to create a nail art tutorial for this Christmas nail design for those who would like to try them. Here it is:
This design is one of the top answers from one of our Facebook conversations. I would love to get your ideas and suggestions. Please join us at Simply Rins' Facebook Page. I would love to get to know you more.
