Merry Christmas everybody! I hope you’ll all have a wonderful day! If you still don’t know what Christmas manicure to do, don’t worry, today I’ll show you some last minute Christmas ideas and tutorials.

I love how this mani turned out! It is not the traditional Christmas colors but who says everything must be red, green and gold when it’s Christmas? For this mani I used polishes from the Formula X in the city box which I wrote about in this blog post. The dark purple is called ‘Perfection’, the pink is called ‘Ladies First’ and the white is called ‘White Matter’. The accent nail is painted with acrylic paint using the watercolor technique. Dilute the acrylic paint with water, use a dotting tool to make dots in a tree shape and then soak up the excess water with a dry brush. Take a look at the video below to see how I did.

 

Next Christmas mani is the one I’m currently wearing. It is quite simple to do, especially if you’ve got holly stencils – the ones I’m using are from What’s Up Nails and you can buy them from Amazon.

The red polish is ‘890 Red Socks’ from IsaDora and it is part of IsaDora’s new Holographic Glitter Nails collection. All other polishes used are also from IsaDora. The gray polish is called ‘249 Turtledove’, the white is called ‘685 White China’, the red without glitter is called ‘263 Rhapsody Red’ and the green is called ‘821 Green Planet’.

Next up is a winter landscape manicure. This one takes a little longer to do but I definitely think it is worth it. I love the color combination and the wintery feel of this mani. The polishes used are from the Formula X in the city box (read about it in this blog post). The blue glitter is called ‘Freaky Like Freud’, the navy blue is called ‘Majestic’ and the white is called ‘White Matter’. Check out the video below to see how I created this manicure.

Next we have a Christmas jumper nail art using polishes from Essie’s winter 2016 collection (which I wrote about in this blog post). For the pattern I used ”knit your own sweater” stencils from What’s Up Nails, you can by them on Amazon.

The gray polish in the picture is Essie ‘Go with the flowy’, and the red polish is called ‘Party on a platform’, also from Essie. I really like the combination of gray and red for Christmas, it’s so festive!

The last nail art idea for this year is a super simple one that everyone can make. All you need is a dotting tool (or a bobby pin, a pin or something similar) and red and white polish. The polishes I used are ‘Santa Wishes’ from Depend’s Season Sparkle collection (which I wrote about in this blog post), and a white stamping polish, also from Depend. Take a look at the tutorial below to see how I created this manicure.

Formula X in the City + winter nail art

18 december 2016 av nailsbyic

Formula X has released a gorgeous box of nail polishes called Formula X in the city. It contains 10 polishes whereof seven are classic shades and three are new, limited edition ones. The polishes are a mix of creme, shimmer and glitter polishes and they are perfect for the winter season. I must say I absolutely love the packaging and it’s a perfect Christmas gift for nail polish lovers! Also, each house section can be separated and there is a gift tag on the back if you’d like to give the polishes as separate gifts. You can buy the Formula X in the city box at Sephora and it retails for 300 SEK.

This is actually my first winter mani of the year and it was so fun to do! All polishes used are from the Formula X in the city box. The blue background is Majestic, the glitter is Freaky Like Freud and the white is White Matters. The trees are hand-painted using white acrylic paint. Check out the video below to see how I did!

Movember nail art

24 november 2016 av nailsbyic

It’s Movember, so why not raise awareness by painting a mustache on your nails? For this Movember nail art design I used a gorgeous dark green polish from Smith & Cult called Darjeeling Darling (which you can find here) and my favorite glitter polish ORLY Halo (which I revied in this blog post). Green and silver glitter is always a good color combo!

For the accent nail I used a super cute nail vinyl from What’s Up Nails and sponged on the glitter. Take a look at the tutorial below to see how I did.
