nail art: festive christmas baubles nail art

It is my favourite time of the year because Christmas is around the corner! I love all the sparkly decorations, christmas lights, festive tunes, hot chocolate and gingerbread. So to celebrate the season with some festive cheer, I created some baubles nail art (inspired by nailstorming). I love how sparkly this design is and it definitely makes me happy because it looks just like christmas wrapping paper. I used nail polish from Etude House's Holiday Trio pack. I'm not sure if they still sell it because it was a christmas gift from my aunt last year. Anyhow, it's a relatively simple nail art and you only need four colours - deep red/maroon, metallic glittery gold, green and red glitter, and white.

  1. Paint two-three coats of dark red/maroon as a base colour.
  2. Next, paint on some green, red and gold glitter. Mine came together in a bottle but if you don't have that, you could paint separate coats of glitter. I tried not to pile on too much glitter so I only went with one coat of glitter and made sure they were evenly distributed on my nail. 
  3. Using the metallic glittery gold, dot on the shapes of the baubles. I literally did this in blobs with my brush, slowly dabbing out a circle to the best of my ability. 
  4. Finally, draw on your bauble designs using a nail brush or nail pen and white nail polish. 
Simple as that! Make sure to tag #megoostafashion if you try this out so that I can check our your creation and give it a like + comment! Happy holidays!
