Christmas Candy Cane Nails!

I know candy cane nails are nothing new, but I never got a chance to try them last year and I feel like candy cane nails are more of a seasonal thing. Although, with nail polish I am starting to care less and less about the seasons and just wear what feels right at the moment. Carpe Nail Diem!

I started with three coats of NOPI – It’s All About the Glam from the Kardashian Holiday Collection. This is a shimmery white polish that was fairly As cheesy as some of the nail names are from the Kardashian collection (enough with working in the Ks into everything!) I did like this colour and quite a number of others.

I then used a red striper polish to draw the peppermint lines as straight as possible. Rays of sun were filtering through the bars of my balcony so I thought I’d be artsy and pair “linear with linear”. I know, I’m so creative.

  4. These are so cute! I might try to do this using OPI and Sally Hansen polishes. I just need to find a paint brush as I dont have any nail art brushes

    1. The nail art brushes help soooo much! I don't think I could paint anything if it weren't for these brushes!

    I've been wanting to try candy cane nails but didn't know how I wanted to "approach" the nail art. (Haha, love that you said you ate it after!)

    1. You can do it on short nails too couldn't you? Or you can do little peppermint swirls which would also look cute.
