Nail Art: Santa Bear

Just a few more days before Christmas and I'm seeing more and more awesome Christmas nail design ideas. I'm seeing lots of glitters, reds, greens, golds, and blues! I was about to choose a red nail polish from my stash but I really wanted to use this polish I recently bought from Digital Traincase during a trip to a weekend bazaar. I still wanted to create a Christmas nail art so I did an accent nail.

I named this freehand Christmas nail design, Santa Bear. Take a look:

I painted a teddy bear on the accent nail and added a Santa hat to make this manicure apt for the holiday season. It's too bad the pompom on the tip of hat didn't appear so visible because of the light background I chose.

Base color for the accent nail is 2 coats of Orly Kiss The Bride. I would recommend a more neutral color if you decide to recreate this nail design so that the whites on the Santa hat would pop out better.

I used 2 coats of Essie School of Hard Rocks on my other nails. I decorated them with small polka dots using Kiss The Bride. I really liked this bluish gray shade from Essie. I didn't want to overpower the color with bigger dots.

I painted the teddy bear with acrylic paints using a detailing nail art brush and some dotting tools. I have been testing a few acrylic paint brands that are available in our local bookstore and there are some that fails me. I'll be writing a separate post on this to address inquiries regarding which brands work.

This Christmas nail design may lack the usual festive colors but I think it's a good idea if you want to wear something simple for the holidays. I hope you liked this little Santa Teddy Bear.

  9. Hi, Shelbylovespurple!
    I'm glad you found my nail art blog. You can purchase nail art brush sets online or try to see if your local department stores have a set. As regards the acrylic paints, these are available in craft stores. Its the same acrylic paints used by artists. :)
