276: tutorial - gift box nails

This week, I'm working on finishing all of my Christmas gift giving-- so I wanted to keep my nails festive to go with it & did this look:

pretty little packages!

Here's how we do it:

Start with a base coat, a light base colour, red, white striper and a top coat

I started with a base colour of turquoise

The taking the deep red, I drew on some squares at the corners of my nails

Continue drawing boxes on all of your nails

I randomized the directions of the boxes so they weren't too uniform

Take your striper brush and draw crosses on your boxes

Then draw a bow on top by drawing a super wide & short "X" shape

Then topcoat with a quick dry & you're done!

Festive right?!

Are you done your holiday shopping yet?! eek!
