Tiger nail art

Here’s a simple tiger manicure, great for when you’re wearing orange nail polish and want a new mani without any trouble of removing your old nail polish.

Here’s how to do it:

If you haven’t painted your nails orange, start by doing that. I used Essie’s Fear and desire.

Then use a piece of a make-up sponge and dab some white nail polish on your nails.

I then used a thin nail art brush and some black polish to paint the stripes.

I also tried to paint a tiger’s face on my middle finger, using  the same thin brush and black nail polish. I did the eyes with a toothpick and som black and blue polish. The tiger’s face was not the best thing I’ve painted, but it did end up kind of cute.

Simple Christmas “trees”

Here’s a simple Christmas manicure. I used: green, silver, red and yellow nail polish, a thin brush and a bobby pin.

Start by painting all of your nails green. Then paint thin silver lines. The silver lines will be your “glitter”.

Then use your bobby pin to create red and yellow dots.

And you’re done! You now have Christmas tree-inspired nails.

Happy holidays!
