Snowman nail art tutorial

Monday, 12 December 2016

Hello!  I thought I could squeeze in another Christmas themed nail art for you, and today it's the turn of the snowman...

For this you will need:

  • A blue polish
  • A shimmery polish (optional)
  • A white polish
  • A black polish
  • A black nail art pen or really fine paintbrush
  • An orange polish
  • A top coat
  • Dotting tools
First, start with a blue base coat.  I've gone for a light blue and then added an old favourite of Models Own Indian Ocean, which adds a beautiful shimmer over the top.

Then use a white polish and dotting tools to add some snowfall.

Use the dotting tool again to add some snow at the tips of your nails.

Then add your snowman body.  I've added on two nails, but you could just do one accent nail or have snowmen on all your nails - whatever you fancy.

Use a nail art pen or a really fine paintbrush to add arms on your snowman.

Using a nail art pen or a dotting tool, carefully add eyes and mouth.

Use a dotting tool and your orange to add a nose.

And add some dots for buttons down the front of your snowman.

And finish with a top coat.  Don't drag too hard when applying your top coat, you don't want your design to run...

  1. I'd forgotten how gorgeous that Models Own Indian Ocean is - and great tutorial, I'm not one for nail art but this looks very achievable!

  2. So cute and I love that you used Indian Ocean as the base, that colour is perfect.
