Fun colourful Christmas nail design for the young and old. I really enjoy painting these designs!


  • 1 Shellac base coat
  • 1 Brown shellac or nail polish
  • 1 Red shellac or nail polish
  • 1 Black shellac or nail polish
  • 1 White shellac or nail polish
  • 1 Bronze/brown glitter
  • 1 Shellac top coat


  1. Clean your nails and then apply a thin coat of shellac base coat. Cure under a UV lamp for 30 seconds.
  2. Apply a coat of brown shellac over entire nail and cure for 120 seconds. Repeat this step for a second coat if required. Or if using nail polish this would be your first step with a brown colour and no UV lamp necessary.
  3. Paint a red nose on with shellac and cure for 120 seconds, repeat a second and third time for thicker 3D effect. or again use red nail polish.
  4. Using white shellac paint on the eyes and line on nose and cure for 120 seconds under UV lamp, repeat another 1-2 times.
  5. Paint on black dots in eyes with shellac or nail polish and cure under UV lamp for 120 seconds.
  6. Paint on antlers with a bronze colour glitter shellac or nail polish and cure for 120 seconds.
  7. Paint nails with shellac top coat and cure for 120 seconds… If still feel soft when lightly touched cure for a further 120 seconds.
  8. Wipe off sticky excess with shellac cleaner solution and your all done :-)
