Candy Cane Nails!

Hi everyone! Today I have candy cane inspired nails! It's not perfect, but you get the idea!

For this manicure I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Cherry Red on all my fingers & Sinful Colors Snow Me White on my ring finger. And I believe the Cherry Red is one of the colors on clearance at CVS right now. So you could pick this up for less than $1! For the candy cane stripes I used Art Deco nail art polish in Red Glitter. I actually found this at the dollar store! They had quite a few colors, including a green that would be perfect for Christmas as well. These nail art polishes are usually a few dollars elsewhere, so see if your local dollar store has any.

I just painted 3 stripes in a diagonal direction over the white. They are not perfect, but close enough! This was my first time using a nail art polish. I think it turned out cute!

You could change this up a bit to suit your style. You could do white stripes over a red base, you could have your thumb be another candy cane or you could make all your nails candy canes. It is up to you! I am actually thinking that I might add a sparkly glitter over all my red nails, just to give it some extra holiday feel! If you do any Christmas nails let me know!

Thanks for reading!
