Christmas Noir

Black and White Christmas Nail Art

I've seen a lot of cute black and white Christmas themed nails, so I decided to try one of my own. I chose simplistic stamped designs of a Christmas tree forest and a sweater pattern.  For the other nails, I added a present nail and some glitter and studs. 

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - White on
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Black Noir
  • Sephora O.P.I. - To The Glitter End!
Other Supplies:
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-H02 (trees)
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-211 (sweater pattern)
  • Rubber stamper
  • Black bow charm
  • Krazy Glue
  • Nail striping tape
  • Gunmetal faceted stud

If you don't feel like dealing with nail tape for the present nail, you can use a nail art brush and freehand a vertical line.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a white base color.

  2. Stamp the tree design (BM-H02) with black stamping polish on the middle finger, and the sweater pattern (BM-211) across the pinky.

  3. Add a glitter gradient to the index finger using To The Glitter End!
  4. Use nail tape to create a thick vertical line down the ring finger, then paint in with black polish and remove the tape.
