Christmas - Sweater nails ^_^ (mini tutorial)

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Today I will show you the manicure I am wearing this Christmas and a mini tutorial for it. :D
The design is pretty common (you can find it on most X-mas themed sweaters) but I've been wanting to try it for a very long time and had a little free time now. ^_^

I used a metallic Ciate nail polish that looked golden on my nails but silver in the bottle and in the pictures (weird) and my favorite red, textured, nail polish from Essence (bottle's nearly empty).

The result came out pretty nice so I decided to make a tutorial for it as well, in case anyone would like to try it and doesn't find enough inspiration on Google... :P
And here is the mini tutorial. ^_^
I tried making each step clear, I hope it worked...

1. Paint your nails with the base color.
2. Dab some other color onto your nail using the sponge technique.
3-7. Start painting shapes (X, stripes, hearts, dots, <, >, etc.) using acrylic paint.
8-10. To make a flower draw the outline of each petal using a thin brush, then color the petals.
11. Seal the design with a top coat.

I'm not very proud of the flower on my pinky because it was done in a rush and it looks like a flower and a star mated on my nail, but I think that the other nails form a pleasant pattern.

I think the picture below is one of my favorite nail art pictures (taken by me) so far. :)))

In the end, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas (or, well, just a very nice day to those who do not celebrate it) and I hope you enjoyed this post. ^_^
