Candy Cane Nails
Again, start with a clear base coat.
Then I used a pale, mint green as a base colour, but other colours would work too, I’d just recommend to stick with paler colour as they will show the white and red of the candy canes up better.
After that has dried, on the index and ring fingers of each hand I used a dotting tool to create a white candy cane shape. I did this by creating a series of dots really close together, this allows the shape to be thick enough to put the stripes on and reduces the chance of making a mistake if the dots are done slowly.
Once this is dry (again I mean REALLY dry!), I put four red dots on each candy cane, spaced apart to create the illusion of stripes.
And that’s how to do candy cane nails :)
NB. if you don’t have dotting tools, you can use a toothpick. Dotting tools just allow you to vary the size of the dot (particularly useful for the snowmen) and, personally, I find them easier to use. Plus, they aren’t very expensive to buy off Amazon and can be used over and over again! :)
Also, you could put snowmen/candy canes on as many nails as you like, the choice is yours!
