Candy Cane Nails

These nails are fun, festive, and super easy to do yourself.

Method 1  |  Since you are starting with a dark color on the nails, use a base coat first, then paint on your favorite red (I used Essie’s jag-u-are).  Next, draw slightly rounded diagonal lines across your nail with either a white nail pen or a tiny paint brush dipped in white polish.  Finish with a top coat.

Method 2 |  Paint your nails white (base coast optional).  Then place painters’ tape that has been cut into thin strips onto your nails where you want the stripes placed.  Then, paint on your favorite red.  Remove the tape immediately.  Finish with a top coat.
