Candy Cane Nails

This is a really cute idea for Christmas that can be done in a lot of ways. You can use all red nails to base, or add the silver like I did, you can use your candy cane nails on more than one nail, with red or green or silver or anything really. This offers a simple look with lots of options.

I chose to use Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in So Poppy on my fingers, with Celeb City (same brand) on my thumbs. Then I used a white striper by Kiss and a silver glitter striper from Wow Wow Nails. I only made my ring fingers candy canes, because mine were not super neat and I think it would have looked messy and crowded on all fingers. If you can do it thinner and neatly then feel free to cover all fingers in the stripes.

This is my Candy Cane Nail, I did have some trouble with the stripers, I am not very neat an precise so I always struggle with painting my own lines.

Overall though I like this mani and think its really cute for Christmas time!
What do you guys think?

Oh I know what you mean, trust me this took many attempts and probably triple the amount of time it should have.

Thanks ladies!
