NAIL ART TUTORIAL: YULE LOG

IMG_0051

It’s official, Christmas is only 2 weeks away! Where does the time go? We wanted to fit in as many holiday nail art tutorials as we can over till the big day. Today’s tutorial is inspired by the Christmas yule log – a delicious chocolate dessert with garnish on top.

Step 1: After applying a base coat, paint nails two coats of OPI – Suzi Loves Cowboys. When you buy a chocolate brown you never think you’ll use it much, but we use this shade all the time for nail art designs.yl1

Step 2: Using a larger dotting tool, dot 3-4 polka dots 1/3 down from the tip of your nail using OPI – Alpine Snow. IMG_0041

Step 3: Now, with your favourite nail art brush, connect the dots to create a drip like pattern as your yummy icing. Fill in the top part of your nail using the brush from the bottle.IMG_0044

Step 4: Last but not least, use a small dotting tool to place 3 holly berries just under the tip of your nail. We used Essie – She’s Pampered, a perfect holiday red. Don’t forget to seal in your design with a top coat!IMG_0056IMG_0051

This nail art is fairly easy and good for beginners! Yule log nail art is a cute design that’s different from more of the common ones. You can add to this design by painting holly leaves, or using red nail gems for the berries.

What will you be wearing on your nails over the holidays? What nail art would you like to see on PYP? Tweet @PolishYouPretty with your holiday nail art suggestions & we’ll try to showcase them till the 25th!

    I love the originality of this! I like to wear different nail designs, makeup looks, and fashion styles that set me apart from everyone else in the current “trend”. Wonderful idea! Kat

  4. Great! It also could look like snow on a rooftop with Christmas decorations. You connected the white polish really well and it all looks smooth
