Christmas Nails Part 3: Candy Cane

Its day 3 in my Christmas Nails series and today Im going to show you how to do candy cane nails!

So start of with a pretty red nail.

For the stripes there are 2 different ways you can do it:
Once your nails are dry, you can cut some tape into little stripes, put them on your nails and paint over with white polish.
Once the white is dry, take off the tape and you will be left with perfect straight candy cane stripes.

Taking your nail art brush, start by doing a line through the middle of your nail from corner to corner.

Use this as your central stripe and do one more either side.

When dry, paint over with clear nail polish.


Now you have pretty candy cane nails. This would look cute on all ten digits or as accent nails.

Have you tried this?

See you tomorrow for day 4!



  1. Wow! I'm so clumsy that I won't probably be able to paint my nails. Yours look gorgeous!
