Hi everybody, I’m Kirsty Meakin from Naio Nails. In this video, I’m gonna show you five quick Christmas designs that anybody can do. Let’s get started. Come on! So, I have a red nail I have painted. This red nail in this colour.
Hold it down. And I’ve also top coated it. So, what we’re gonna do is, we’re gonna create a candy cane inspired nail. You could use this as an accent nail, you could do a full set if you really want to.
So, what we’re gonna do is, we’re gonna use snow white. This is our first colour that we’re gonna use. And we’re gonna paint like a wave. So imagine this is like a unicorn horn kind of wave. We’re gonna use Snow Fairy Superfine glitter.
You get like a little fan brush and then, basically sprinkle it onto the wet gel polish. Give that a few seconds to just soak in to the gel polish. Pop into the lamp. And we’re gonna dust off the excess.
Oh! That looks pretty already and then we’re gonna use this colour. You can just use the top coat, but I like to use a corresponding gel polish for this. So, we’re gonna use gold. Gonna do this one a little bit thinner, so these are thinner lines.
I’ve started from the center there, so I know where I’m working on. Gives me a guide because it’s more difficult to sort of start from here and go up there. And then we’re gonna use Bronze Superfine glitter.
So we’re dusting over with the gold glitter. So, do you understand what I mean when I say I like to use a corresponding gel polish? So, I’ve used the gold gel polish. You could just cure and leave it like that but we’re making this textured by adding the glitter.
So, the time it takes you to put the lid on, will be enough time for you to then pick it up and knock off the excess and then we can pop it into the lamp. And we’re gonna dust off the excess and there you have it.
Beautiful candy cane inspired nail. Super quick and easy too. The only thing that it’s not easy to do and quick is cleaning that glitter up. Kirsty: For my second trick… Adam: Alright, Paul Daniels Kirsty: .
..we are going to use Snow White. So, the colour I’ve used on this nail already is, That colour, whatever that one is. And we’re going to do… I’m gonna show you how to do a really simple, quick snowflake.
So, we gonna start on the top and then pull down. And here, pull up like this, And then, we gotta come slightly shorter with this one. We gonna do around that in the middle. Cure that. You could leave it like that or you could add little portions of other snowflakes.
The same style, just you know, the simple, really simple snowflakes because these are just things that are quick to do in the salon. Now, cure that. So, you see what I did, as I started from the outer edge and what that does is, it leaves the majority of the gel polish there, and then as you come down, it gets thinner.
Yeah! See what I mean because if you do it the other way, you can sort of do it the other way but I don’t think it looks… Adam: Looks more like a star if you do it that way Kirsty: Yeah! Adam: Looks more like a star if you do it that way Adam: Looks more like a star if you do it that way Kirsty: If you come from the middle out.
As you come from the outside, it looks really cool and it’s so simple. Then I’m gonna top coat, then cure that. Nice! Look at that, so simple to do. Easy-peasy snowflake design. For this design, you will need these colours which are dark greeny colour.
Greeny, hmm… greeny. And then, we’ve got this bright green and a pale green. We’ll add a tiny bit of this gold. Same gold as we used before. So, I’m gonna do one coat of the dark green. We’ve already done one coat on it already.
As you can see, I’m prepared the other colours, I’m gonna pop onto here. I’ll need them ready. And the bright green, little bit of gold, oh maybe not that much gold but What the hell, more the merrier .
So, I’m gonna do one coat of the dark green. And I’m not gonna cure that. Then, what we’re gonna do is get gel and do some little lines. Don’t worry at this stage thinking, “oh, they are not even really neat”.
Directly over the top of that one. On top of it rather, not over the top. On top, you want that green, okay? Now, you’re gonna clean your brush. Make sure it’s nice and clean. And you’re gonna pull from the end like this, like this.
What do we have? Oh the Christmas tree! I’m gonna cure that. How easy was that? Just those lines dragged through. Ta da! Christmas tree! I wish it was that easy to sort out your Christmas tree. Definitely my tree was not very easy to put up.
Once that’s cured, just gonna add with the gold a star, pulling from the center out. Dead simple. there we are Now, I’m gonna top coat. Seal that end and then pop it in the lamp and then it’s done. Design four.
We are going to do some icicles really simple, using nothing but products. We’re not gonna do any hand painting or anything like that. So, if you struggle with hand painting, this is like, perfect for you.
So, I’ve already painted on this, a beautiful colour which is all silvery sparkly and little bits of blue. I think it’s a perfect colour. Holographic look. Holographic striping tape stuff, whatever. I can’t even remember we ended up calling this.
So, what you’ll need is a pair of scissors now. I’m sure everybody can use pair of scissors. Kirsty: Yeah? Adam: safety Scissors And we’re gonna do some icicles on this. So, what you gonna do is, if you look at your strip, there are different variations of thicknesses.
So, you can choose whichever one you want. What we’re gonna do is, you can cut the bottom to a point. So, what I’ll actually do is, work from this end and cut it before I even get it off. So, send your eyes giddy this does.
What you’re gonna do… What’s wrong with my English today? So, pick up the pieces that you’ve cut at the end. You don’t need to cut off the whole thing, just pull it off. Cut off your desired length.
Like that. Get your piece and pop it on. Don’t worry about any overhanging at the top. It’s better to slightly overhang than be too short. You can always make that smoother by filing. If you’re doing this on a real person, So you can do it from the free edge upwards or if you would want to get it perfect at the cuticle, you would just size that up or just snip it off.
Obviously, you couldn’t file around the cuticle, but you can if you did it from here, That’ll secure them down. Gonna pop that into the lamp. Adam: It’s too shiny, I can’t focus properly Kirsty: I know,yeah.
It’s a holo, it makes it go all crazy. So, that looks really cute. So, like I said, you could do it with the shards of icicles coming up from the tip as well. That look pretty cool. Pretty simple but very effective.
Now, for the final design of these quick, easy, simple designs to do for Christmas time. What we’re gonna do is, I’ve already painted this nail with… that looks like it Adam: Yeah, it looks like P0006.
Which one is it? Is it 900d? Yeah. That’s it, I think. Adam: P0006 Kirsty: Pooooo six! Adam: Poo6 So, we’re gonna use snow white to create a really simple Christmas tree. So, what you need to do is use the bulk of the product at the tip.
So, you see that? You’re gonna go sweep like that and from this side, you gonna go sweep. Do not let the gel touch each other. Do your thing slightly shorter…. as you go Just add one more here We’re gonna sprinkle some snow fairy superfine glitter onto that.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Oh, the weather outside is frightful but inside it’s something delightful. So delightful and there’s no place to go! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. I’m gonna dust off that excess and you’ve got a textured Christmas tree there.
Last thing I’m gonna do is, pop a little bit of mega gloss. I mean the tiniest bit. We don’t need much, we just touch that there. Just put a tiny stone, just a bit of twinkle. Pop that into the lamp. Before we started, I did topcoat this colour as well.
So, I did this colour and then I top coated and then obviously, we’ve done the Christmas tree. So, that’s a simple Christmas tree design! There you are guys. I hope you’ve enjoyed that video. Five different super easy Christmas designs just for you to do.
