Candy Cane

Sometime last weekend I realised that I hadn't done a Christmas design so far. I don't count snowflakes... those are winter designs for me. So I thought what I could paint my nails like. I needed a design that wasn't too time consuming and that I wouldn't bemoan if it got destroyed. Why? Well, my parents forced me to go through all of my moving boxes to decide what I still need. I'm blocking almost a whole room in the house with my stuff, so it's understandable. I still have a lot to go through and I bet that even though it's Christmas Eve, I'll be sitting in that room at some point tomorrow...

Anyway, I decided on a Candy Cane design. It's rather quickly done and also an opportunity to practice working with my striper brushes. Btw, while going through my boxes, I found my nail art brushes. So that's definitely a good thing :D

First, I painted my nails with two coats of essence perfectly true and then added the stripes using p2 cheerful red. perfectly true is a discontinued polish that I recently found on sale. Sadness! Why is this one discontinued!? It applied really well for a white! cheerful red also applied well. I like that color. It's from the current p2 LE "Happy New Nails". I'm going to wear this solo soon enough... such a nice bright color! Topped the whole thing with one coat of essence BTGN Top Sealer. I just love this top coat <3

Oh well. I really need a lot of practice with those striping brushes! My right hand turned out better, because I started to get a hang of it, but the tip wear is so bad... erm, yes. This is after one day of looking through boxes. No daylight pictures as it is raining since Wednesday. I wish it was snow...


  1. Wow! Find ich wirklich klasse! Frohe Weihnachten!

  2. Sieht richtig gut aus. Weihnachten ist ja mittlerweile leider vorbei, doch dann wünsche ich dir einfach einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr! :)
