This design is inspired by our own Christmas tree. We haven’t decorated it yet so this is an undecorated tree. I was also inspired from a post I saw on Pinterest where they used the same dragging method I used only with shorter and more parted strokes. This is super easy and doesn’t take much time. So let’s get started with the tutorial!
As always start off with a basecoat and apply a shimmery gold polish until opaque.
When that’s dry, make a small dot a few millimeters from the cuticle using a toothpick and green polish. That’s the top of your tree.
Then make small lines dragged from side to side, slightly tilted down so they’re overlapping.
Make the lines longer and longer when you near the tip of your nail. (If needed touch up with the base color)
Apply a topcoat and you’re done!
I hope you liked this design, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram ellaberlin_nails and stay tuned for more, there might come one or two more designs before Christmas but that depends on how much I have to do! Xx
