Who else absolutely loves candy canes? I do, I really love candy canes! In fact they are one of my most favorite things about this holiday season…I have a few sweet teeth actually who am I kidding I love all my sweet teeth! That being said it was no surprise to me when I wanted to do a candy cane nail art design. I wanted my design to capture the crisp lines, the sweet taste, and the holiday spirit that all come packed into this cane that’s a candy!
As I started thinking about doing my candy cane nails design I knew that the stripes had to be perfect, which can be hard to do freehand. That is why I decided to create my candy cane nails using the water marble technique.
Water marble nail art is extremely easy to do and very enjoyable (be prepared to get a little messy when doing them). A note about doing water marbling is that the polish you choose needs to be high quality, the water needs to be luke warm and the cup shouldn’t be too big.
*Warning – You, like me, may have a wonderful addiction to candy canes and your nails might tempt you to take a bite, don’t! Although they may look the same they definitely will not taste the same. Sorry to all those nail biters out there, this design won’t help you break your habit.
So instead of trying to taste your Christmas candy cane fingernails you can satisfy your cravings by going to the store and picking up your very own pack of candy canes and enjoy munching…or sucking on them while you admire your new Christmas nail art design!
After I got done doing all the water marbling for my candy cane strips I thought something was missing. It was sugar! What a surprise right? To make my nails look like they were glistening with sugar I add one coat of silver glitter polish. I love how easy it was to add this polish and the overall effect it had on my nails!
