Snowman Nail Art


It's been a while since I did a nail art post but I thought I'd get into the festive spirit with this super easy snowman design! All you need is 3 nail polishes - white, black and orange, and some nail art dotting tools (you can get these from the pound shop or amazon). Start by painting your nails all white - I did 3 coats in total to make sure the white was nice and solid.


Once the white is dry use your largest dotting tool to create the snowman's eyes. I usually tip some of the polish out onto some tin foil to use as a little palette and then dip my dotting tool in. Once you've done the eyes use a slightly smaller dotter to create the mouth. As you can see mine aren't very symmetrical but practice makes perfect!


Next is probably the hardest part which is adding the carrot nose. For this I used the smallest dotting tool to try and create a triangle shape. I didn't have an orange nail polish so I made one by mixing a yellow and red together which worked perfectly. Once all dry finish with a clear top coat. You might want to wait a while for them to fully dry as you don't want to risk smudging the eyes or mouth! What do you think of my snowman nails? Have you tried any Christmas nail art?
