Manicure Tuesday - Santa Nail Art Tutorial

I'm finally getting some Christmas nail art in!!! I love Christmas nails and I usually do so much more each year - but being sick and breaking a few nails pushed that back a but this year! 

And, I decided to go full on Christmas with some Santa faces nail art!

How cute are these little Santa faces?! I love how these guys turned out! 

I'm never great at explaining the steps of how I did my nail art; but, I can show it:

I started with a peach/beige polish, used a skinny brush and red polish to create a hat, and a skinny nail art brush to create a beard and fill it in. Then using a dotting tool, create the trim on the hat, 2 eyes and a red nose! 

Here are the products I used:
-Sally Hansen Hard As Nails polish in White On
-Ceramic Glaze in Urbane
-White nail art polish Quo by Orly
-Ciate mini polish in Mistress
-Wet n Wild polish in Black Creme
-Red nail art polish in Blinc
-Formula X nail cleanser and base coat
-Sally Hansen miracle gel top coat 
-nail dotting tool (and nail art brush if you need it!)

I just did my Santas as accent nails and painted the other nails all red to match!

And, I'm entering this nail art in the Nail Polish Canada Holiday 2017 Nail Art Challenge - you can find the post here! Or course, I would love if you went to the post and threw a vote my way; but, there is some seriously amazing nail art there and it would be great to check them all out and support more Canadian bloggers and vote for the nail art you love the most! Personally, my vote is going towards Jayne from Cosmetic Proof because her Star Wars Christmas nail art is amazing!

Hope you guys love the little Santas as much as I do! I'm getting so excited this week with the countdown to Christmas!
