Candy Cane Nails – Christmas Nail Design


Candy Cane Nails

This nail design is a Christmas favorite of mine. Every Holiday season, I have to do some sort of Candy Cane or Peppermint design.  This time around I did the candy cane design on clear nails. I love the effect it gives with the clear peeking through, almost like an ice sickle. The candy cane design is completely hand-painted and the bow is of course hand sculpted as well!

Products used to create this design:

I refilled my nails and shaped and buff.

Then I began creating diagnol lines using the LA Colors while nail art paint.Candy Cane Nails

I then go over the previous lines to make them thicker. In between the thick line, I do thinner lines. This technique really gives the illusion of the candy cane design

I repeat this same technique for all of the nails. I use the acrylic brush moisten with a small amount of monomer to clean up any lines I messed up on.Candy Cane Nails

Next, I work on the 3D acrylic bow. I used the Tammy Taylor Whitest White acrylic powder for this step. I wanted a fairly large bow, so I used medium/large sized beads of acrylic.Candy Cane Nails Candy Cane Nails Candy Cane Nails

Next, I used the Kiss red nail art paint to create random thin lines to complete the candy cane design.Candy Cane Nails

Finally, I wait until all the paint is completely dry, then I apply my Seche Vite topcoatScreen Shot 2014-12-23 at 12.33.39 AM
