Nail art: Tinsel nails (Christmas 2016)


Christmas nails for this week! I decided to go for a cute and easy look this time, featuring a red background and gold tinsel 🙂


Tools/items used:

-Acrylic paint
-Striping brush
-Silver stars

Nail polishes used:

-Catrice Nail first aid
-China Glaze – Merry Berry
-Catrice Broken Glass top coat
-Essence – Gold Fever
-Cirque – Himalayan Pink
-Essence – My Fortune Cookie
-Essence Hardening nail base


  1. Apply a base
  2. Add two coats of deep dark red and one coat of sparse glitter flakies
  3. Paint the tinsel using a striper brush. First in acrylic paint, then go over that with glitter nail polishes
  4. On tinsel-free nails, use the striper brush and glitter polishes to create a glitter waterfall
  5. Add some silver stars on the tinsel
  6. Finish it off with top coat
