'Tis the season for festive nail art and today we're looking to actress Bella Thorne for a dose of inspiration! The Alvin and the Chipmunks star visited SiriusXM's Studios in New York City on December 16 sporting a Christmas-ready manicure we won't forget! Let's take a closer look...
Just a few days before her NYC appearance, Bella took to Instagram to share her merry manicure (with a perfectly coordinated pedi at that)! Each finger on her right hand was painted bright red while her left hand boasted two accent nails: one featured a detailed tartan pattern while the other was painted white with a candy cane motif!
Are you, too, feeling inspired by this jolly look? Then try to recreate it at home with some of these tips...
Red as Rudolph's nose
For your main color, opt for a rich ruby red! Start with a base coat and then apply your red polish in two layers, letting the first dry before applying the second. If you really want your nail art to sparkle under the Christmas lights, then opt for a red glitter polish.
To get Bella's nude tartan, you'll need nude, red, white, and black polish. Paint your nail white and then once it's dry, apply a thin strip of washi tape before painting over the white with a nude shade. Once the polish is dry, remove the tape. Use a nail art paint brush to paint thin stripes in black and red to finish your tartan nail art!
I covet... candy canes!
Just like with your ring finger, begin with an opaque base coat of white polish. Allow it to dry and then use your nail polish brush to draw the shapes of candy canes in red. Once dry, draw diagonal white stripes over the red.
Don't forget to coat your nails with a glossy top coat to keep that gorgeous manicure chip-free until the 26th!
