3 Simple Holiday Nail Art Designs

I love nail art, I always have!  Though I never thought I had the artistic ability to do all of the fun and unique designs I saw.  After researching it a bit more I learned that anyone can do nail art!  It’s all about choosing the right designs.  In this post I’m going to walk you through three super easy and fun Holiday Nail Art Designs to show off these next 3 months.  Let’s get started!

First things first, you are going to need the right tools!  You will need a toothpick, a small paintbrush, and a dotting tool.

If you don’t have these tools don’t worry!  You can find these at any beauty supply store.  I bought mine at Ulta.

Now that you are properly equipped I’ll dive into the nail art designs.  I’ll also tell you what brand and the names of all the nail polishes I used so you can recreate the same look if you would like!  (But know that you can choose whatever colors you like!)

Halloween Nail Art

That’s right folks!  That spooky time of year is just around the corner so here is a fun nail art design worthy of communicating with the spirits!  First things first, apply a layer of base coat to all of your nails.

This will help your manicure last and protect your natural nails.  Next paint your thumbnail white and the rest of your nails orange.

Then using the dotting tool and black polish make three large black circles on your thumb to make a ghost.

Your circles don’t have to be perfect and actually add to it if they are a little wobbly!  Then using the same black polish use the small paintbrush to write BOO across three of your nails.  Remember you don’t need perfect letters!  Having some shake to them makes the font look like thriller.

Now for the pinky!  Using the small paintbrush make three small black lines around the edge of your nail.

Then connect the three lines with smaller curved black lines.  You can use the small paintbrush or a toothpick to do this.

When you are finished be sure to apply top coat!  This will keep your nail art shiny and it will help it last longer.

Thanksgiving Nail Art

Fall is such a peaceful time of year.  It’s also the time of year we get to play with warm rich colors!  So here is a fun nail art design sure to get your family talking over turkey dinner!
First, remember to apply your base coat!  Next paint all of your nails (except your ring finger) a light brown/nude color.  Then paint your ring finger a dark brown.

After you have done this use the small paintbrush and paint small leaves on your ring finger.  Use lots of fall colors such as red, orange, and the color you used on your other nails.  Add some top coat and voila!  Cute fall nails that will keep you warm all through the Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Christmas Nail Art

This next nail art design is nothing but nice, and is sure to make a statement at your next holiday party!
First start off with a base coat on all of your nails.  Next french tip all of your nails except for your ring finger.  Then with a small paintbrush dipped in red polish, underline your french tip.

Then using the small paintbrush dipped in brown polish create a half circle on your ring finger.

Using the same brown polish add another smaller circle above the half circle you just made.

Now using your dotting tool, dip it in the same red polish and create a red nose in the center of the two brown circles.  Then use the smaller end of the dotting tool dipped in white polish and add two eyes.  Then take a toothpick dipped in black nail polish and add pupils!

Next take the small paintbrush dipped in a darker brown polish and paint two lines at the top of his head.  Then add as many lines as you would like coming off the side of the main line.

7 Keys to Surviving the Zombie (Tag) Apocalypse

These 7 tips will keep you alive during your next round of Zombie Tag.

1) Choose your loadout carefully.

While it may be fun to carry many weapons, they will weigh you down and you’ll stick out like a sore thumb. Stick to a small pistol and a large rifle. And don’t be this guy.

Don't be this guy cr

2) Know your weapon.

If you know the personality of your weapon, when it will jam, and how to get accuracy out of it, then you just raised your odds tenfold.

Know your weapon cr

3) Practice with it

A single-shot pistol in the hands of a practiced marksman is worth more than a clip-fed gun being fired wildly. Get some friends together with their own guns and have a nerf gun fight to practice hitting moving targets while also learning how to move with your gun.

Practice cr

4) Remember the golden ratio: 3-to-1

One human can take on about three zombies before you have trouble. If it is only one or two, just take them down and save your energy. But don’t forget to…

3 to 1 cr

5) Look behind you

Many humans get killed by a single zombie that sneaks up behind you when your attention is elsewhere. Always stay aware of your back as well as your front.

6) Group up…

In the early days, travel with your friends. The extra eyes and guns will keep you alive while you get used to being vigilant.

Group up cr

7) …but be brave enough to travel alone

As the infection spreads, there will be more zombies and less people. You’ll want to be fast and sneaky. Don’t be afraid to go lone wolf as the situation gets more dangerous.
