I used a combination of UberChic Beauty’s “Holiday Spirit” stamping plate and Lesly’s #31 stamping plate to create this warm Christmas nail art.
I started by applying my usual F.U.N Lacquer “Triple 5” basecoat and allowed five minutes for it to dry.
Next, I applied two coats of ILNP’s Diablo to all nails except the forefinger nail, which I painted gold using two coats of Born Pretty’s #1 stamping polish. I chose Diablo as it’s a beautiful oxblood holographic polish, which when paired with gold looks very festive.
Before moving onto the next step, I applied a coat of Barry M’s Wet Set Quick Dry top coat.
Before I started stamping, I applied Cuticula’s liquid latex to my cuticles and the skin around the edges of my nails.
**This was my first time using this liquid latex and it instantly became my favourite. One thing I always hated about the other brands of liquid latex I owned was the smell (it always resembled fish oil). But, Cuticula’s collection of scented liquid latex changes that. I chose the ”Harvest Moon” scent and it smells divine, with a blend of woodsy and fruity elements. They also have a wide variety of other scents and colours available, including new festive scents. Besides the smell, this product also applies very smoothly and evenly, and dries quickly.**
I then used this ”Merry Christmas” stamp from UberChic Beauty’s “Holiday Spirit” stamping plate and placed it vertically onto my forefinger nail using Born Pretty’s #13 stamping polish.
On the feature nail, I stamped this festive pattern circled below using Born Pretty’s #1 gold stamping polish.
On the other nails, I stamped this gradient pattern from Lesly’s #31 stamping plate using Born Pretty’s #1 stamping polish.
On the thumbnail and pinky fingernail I stamped the pattern at the top of my nail (near the cuticle), and on the middle fingernail, I stamped the pattern on the tip of my nail.
I sealed in the designs using Born Pretty’s non-smear stamping polish and allowed 5-10 minutes for it to dry.
Once the top coat had dried I added a small blob of Barry M’s Wet Set Quick Dry top coat to the top of my middle fingernails and placed a small yellow/gold rhinestone from this set I purchased on Amazon.
This is the finished look:
