Christmas style nails (Tartan & Sparkle)

 I saw a picture of a nail design similar to this but I wanted to add my own twist to it and try it out for myself.

This design is taken from the idea of the 12 days of Christmas (10 pipers piping) although I added some gold sparkle to it to make it extra glamorous!

Step 1: apply a red base-coat colour to each nail I used the colourworks nail polish which came in a gift set. (You may need to do more then 1 coat).
Step 2: After you have let it dry and it isn't tacky take an eyeliner of your chose (BeautyUK) or a             black nail polish and apply in lines  to give a tartan effect. Be sure to not touch this while drying.

Step 3: Apply a coloured sparkly eyeliner down the centre line of your nail design to give it some sparkle (dont smudge it, leave to dry for 5 mins)

Step 4: Apply a top coat to keep everything in place!

 This design was so much fun to create and I love the fact that all products are reasonably priced!
I hope you enjoyed my blog post for today..
Good Luck
