For Santa's Cap .
Step 1: Clean and buff your nails. Apply a silver glitter nail polish as base on your bare nails to give a nice shiny glittery background appropriate for the festive season.
Step 2: Apply red nail paint in a triangular form as shown in the picture.
Step 3: Apply white nail polish on tips. Remember not to be perfect. We actually want zigzag lines to make it look like cotton fur.
Step 4: Apply a white dot on the apex of the triangle (cap).
Step 5: Now grab a black liquid liner with a thin brush and draw outlines of the cap. Make some random lines inwards to give a folding effect.
For Candy Cane Sticks .
Step 6: On your ring finger make two candy cane sticks. Begin with a glitter background. Draw two cane sticks with U-bends using white nail polish and a thin brush as shown in the picture.
Step 7: Make stripes with red all over the sticks.
Step 8: Outline the sticks with black liquid liner.
Step 9: Apply a clear top coat to seal in the design.
So here’s what you have, a perfect manicure for this cheerful festive season! Go on try it and give your friends something to talk about.
