NOTW: Pink Christmas Trees

Hey all :) How was Christmas? Mine was filled with good food, great company and amazing presents as well as a girly manicure which I am going to show you how to achieve in this post :) I wanted something Christmassy but at the same time different, hence I opted for pink Christmas trees :)

1. Start with a base coat to protect your natural nails.

2. Apply two coats of a shimmery pink nail polish such as Rimmel 60 Seconds 400 Starlet on all nails, omitting the ring fingers.

3. On the ring fingers, apply two coats of a shimmery grey. My choice was O.P.I. The World Is Not Enough from the Skyfall collection.

4. Make sure that the base colour is fully dry on the ring fingers before proceeding. Subsequently, apply two strips of striping tape, leaving a triangle in the between. This will be your Christmas tree, then apply another two strips crossing over each other on the top part of the triangle and repeat this step a little lower. 
5. Paint over the triangle in a solid pink such as Zoya Lara. Wait a couple of seconds and being to peel the tape off gently. You will be left with a Christmas tree with 'tinsel'.

6. Using a shimmery silver polish such as Orly Dazzle, place dots randomly on the tinsel to make them look like baubles.

7. With a fine detailing nail art brush and the same silver polish, paint a little star on top of the tree.

8. Finish with a glossy top coat and you're done!
