Rudolph Nail Art Design featuring KBShimmer for #NAILlinkup

I have another Christmas themed design to share with you today. Rudolph was always one of my favorite Christmas stories and holiday TV specials as a kid, so I just had to have him on my nails! I hope you aren’t too KBShimmer’d out yet because there is still more to come. When I fall hard for something I don’t mess around!!

The inspiration for this design, aside from my love of Rudolph, is the awesome Rudolph The Reindeer Swarovski Charm on my ring finger that I found at Daily Charme. He wasn’t the easiest charm to wear, but he was gorgeous!

I started with 2 coats of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter A-Peel, then applied 2 coats of KBShimmer Holly Back Girl to my index and pinky fingers and 2 coats of KBShimmer White Here, White Now to my ring finger.

I used the Dab & Spread method to apply KBShimmer Pine-ing for Yule over a base of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri OMGhost on my thumb and middle fingers. I did use a toothpick to position the glitter as desired on my middle finger. See my post “KBShimmer Winter 2014 Collection Swatches & Review: Part 2” for more information on these polishes. I finished with 1-2 coats of HK Girl Fast Drying Topcoat over all untextured nails.

Next I stamped over Holly Back Girl with reindeer designs from MoYou London Festive 01 and Bundle Monster BM-H01 using Mundo de Unas Black.

 I embellished my ring finger by fishing out a few stars and trees from Pine-ing For Yule and lining them up along the bottom of my finger. Then I used a fair amount of nail glue to secure Daily Charme’s Rudolph The Reindeer Swarovski Charm.

Another fun holiday design that turned out just the way I hoped! And this one was even fairly easy to create. I hope you enjoyed it and I would love to hear your thoughts! I read and respond to every comment. I realized after originally posting that my N.A.I.L Group had a “Reindeer” prompt this month so I’m in! Please take a moment to scroll down and view the designs from other group members.

Happy Holidays! I will see you at the next post.
