12 Days of Christmas Holiday Manicure Series Day 1 - Red Glittery Santa Hat Tips

Today marks the start of my 12 days of Christmas Holiday manicure series and what better way to start off with a bang than with these adorable Santa hats on my nail tips? For the next 12 days leading up to Christmas I'll be showing you a new holiday themed design. Turns out my new stiletto nail shape came in quite handy for this one. NO REGRETS!

I love that these are festive without being overdone, and on the plus side they are really easy to do. The Santa hats were completely painted freehand with a small art brush. I started by creating just a basic french tip. Once that was fully dry, I used a white polish and a dotting tool to make the fluffy base of the hat. To finish them off, I painted a few swipes of Ruby Pumps again to make the rest of the hat and added a clear gem. Voila!

This design really is perfect for the stiletto shape, but can be done on any nails. If you have square or squoval nails, just make the base of the hat on your nail tip with the point going towards the cuticle and it'll turn out great.

Share your thoughts about Santa hat nail tips. What's your favorite holiday nail design?
