12 posts of Christmas: 9. Multicoloured nails

This is another manicure from last year, multicoloured, festive and quite easy to do! I hope I inspire you, obviously any colour combinations can work – but it’s fun to use more than three colours, and alternate them across all of the nails. You can use tape to get the lines perfect, but this ‘triangle’ design is quite easy to free hand, and again, it looks alright without super sharp lines.

I used 6 colours in total for this look, and alternated them on each nail. It's a good idea to think this through before starting, to make sure two identical nails aren't next to each other.


Another view of the nails, in natural lighting. I liked how I used a lot of colours that I wouldn't normally wear on their own, such as the blue glitter and the green.


This was about the same time last year as I got engaged, hence the close up on the ring, as opposed to the nails. Oh well, they compliment each other!
