It's Raining Candy Canes!

I would say sorry for another Christmas mani, but I'm totally not sorry! I keep seeing candy canes in the shops and I've had to force myself not to buy a whole box of them - yum. Instead I drew a ton of little mini ones on my nails for you.

The base of this mani is Barry M - Huckleberry*, this was a spring release but we still love it and it's the perfect cool blue for winter manis too! I drew the candy canes on with a black Barry M nail art pen and then filled them in with a white pen, leaving a black outline. Finally I used a small brush to add little red stripes in Barry M - Blood Orange. The stripes aren't as neat as they could be but my red polish has gone a touch gloopy and the candy canes are so small I struggled a little. Finally I added Barry M - Matte Top Coat*.

Due to the fiddly nature this mani did take a little longer than I expected but I absolutely love how it turned out. I wasn't sure that it was going to translate well from my head onto my nails so was pleasantly surprised!

We can't get enough of Christmas patterns so expect to see a lot more over the next few weeks!
