Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have some wintery/Christmassy nail art to share with you! I was really in the mood to use some textured polishes but I wasn't sure which colors or art to do with them. I am actually a huge fan of textured polishes and the PixieDust line is what got me started on Zoya polishes. My first textured polish was Zoya Tomoko and I haven't looked back since! I also really love the OPI Liquid Sands so I pulled out OPI Solitaire and Zoya Oswin for this peppermint/candy cane look. I have some more pictures to share with you and a short step by step on how I completed this mani!
I started by applying my favorite base coat to protect my natural nails - I use LynBDesigns B-Stronger. Once that was dry, I painted two coats of OPI Solitaire on my thumb, ring finger, and pinkie. I went back with Zoya Oswin after my base color had dried and added the two tiny dots with my smallest dotting tool. I did topcoat with LynBDesigns B-Shiny but only one coat to preserve the texture of the polishes. I mostly added the topcoat to prolong wear. Starting on my middle finger, I used a thin striping brush to add OPI Solitare closest to my cuticle and at an angle. I cleaned off my striping brush and did the same thing with Zoya Oswin. I repeated back and forth, cleaning my brush between each color until I reached the tip of my nail. Once the lines were dry, I went back with the same striping brush and cleaned up my lines a little and intensified each of the colors. I allowed my design to dry and topcoated, again only using one layer of topcoat to preserve the texture of the polishes. And that's it! Super easy and very few tools required for this look.

That's it for this nail art look, what do you think? What's your favorite winter/Christmassy design to do?
