Willie

Christmas Dog Nails

It's the season for giving, so give back to some animals in need and buy some nail polish!

If you haven't heard of them yet, Nail & Bone is an amazing polish company that supports the #adoptdontshop initiative, helping shelter animals find forever homes. How? 20% of every purchase is donated to animal shelters to help our furry friends in need. 

Right now, the holiday collections make the decision to buy easier. Nail & Bone by Hallewood is a beautiful set curated by Halle Berry, and named after each one of her beloved pets. Willie is a gorgeous black cherry red, with just the right amount of shimmer. One coat is a pretty, translucent polish. Three coats gets a deep opaque finish. I always love a dark polish, and this one does not disappoint.


Nail Polish

Polish Used:
  • Nail & Bone - Willie
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Acrylic paint - black, white, red, green
  • Nail art brush

Willie was Halle's toy maltese, so these nails area nod to him. Plus some holly berries for Halle Berry :) To create this look:
  1. Apply the base color with Willie.

  2. Use a nail art brush and acrylic paint to paint a toy maltese on the middle finger.
    • Use white paint for the dog head, ears, and brim and puff ball of the Santa hat. Then use red to complete Santa's hat.
    • Use black polish to outline the dog's face and hat, and add eyes and a nose and mouth.
    • Add a few extra defining details - white highlight dots on the eyes and nose, and a black line for the crease in the hat.

  3. Paint holly berries on the rest of the nails, using red and green acrylic paint. Mix white polish with the red and green to add highlights on the berries and leaves.
