Peppermint Swirl

Peppermint candies remind me of the holiday season.  I especially love it when a peppermint candy cane is in my hot chocolate.

Here's another simple tutorial (if you have a steady hand).

You will need:
  • Le Chat Ultra Bond BaseCoat
  • Wet n' Wild French White Creme
  • OPI Bullish on OPI
  • Glittery polish (optional)
  • Le Chat Ultra Fast Dry TopCoat
  • Paintbrush
  • Contact lens case
 It's gonna get sweet =)

1.  Paint your base coat and then white all over the nail.  I painted 2 coats here.

 2.  Paint a curved line from the center to the side.  Then from the same point in the center, draw another curved line but ending it at a different point next the the first line.

3. Colour it in!  You should have something like this.

4.  Continue on with the rest of the nail.  Start from the same point every time.

5.  It should end up looking something like this.  I did 4 little curved triangles. You can do as many as you'd like, but I stuck with 4 because it was easier to divide evenly.  You can add a wash of glitter or just top coat the whole thing.

As you can see, I also did some stripes instead of making all my nails peppermint swirls.
Hope you can have fun with this too!

I need a better camera =.=
