Holiday Nails: Candy Cane Stripes

Email |
By lesleykat · November 30, 2010

I'm having so much fun creating fun holiday inspired nails. Today's nail creation is traditional candy cane stripes. A striping tool is essential in creating this look. You could use a nail art polish, but I don't always love their formula. You may have to go over it a few times to get even, opaque coverage.

For the white I used a flat white with no shimmer: LA Splash Great White ($3.99). A shimmery white would also look nice, just make sure you apply enough layers to achieve full coverage. I used a medium length striping tool from a Sally Beauty Nail Art Brush Set ($10.99) to create alternating thicknesses of red. I liked the little bit of shimmer that Zoya Lisa ($7) adds. A little shimmer gives it a realistic candy shine. I topped it with two coats of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat ($9.99) for extra shine.
