Simple Nail Designs: Candy Canes
This design looks especially good on medium to long nails because the length helps resemble that of a candy cane. The first thing is to apply a clear, base coat to your nails. Then, choose a shade of red nail polish. Rich, vibrant colors, such as OPI, will make your simple nail designs really pop. I hope you are patient because you should wait at least 10 minutes for your nails to dry after applying the red nail polish to each of your nails. This is because you do not want the red and white nail polish to smear. After waiting 10 minutes, you can continue with your simple nail designs. Please do not be intimidated by this selection of simple nail designs. It is just a bunch of white lines painted against a red background.
Next, take a white nail art brush. A nail art brush is simply nail polish that comes with a thin brush. A thin brush will make it much easier to apply your designs. Paint a thick, white stripe diagonally across the middle of your nail. Draw another thick, white line diagonally near the tip of your nail. Steady your hand against a table. Draw a smaller thin, white line parallel to each of the two thick stripes you already drew. To make your nails more interesting, you can alternate between drawing stripes at the tip of the nail with drawing stripes at the base of the nail. When you are finished, these simple nail designs will look fantastically festive! To complete the look, wait another 10 minutes for the nail polish to set. Then apply a clear nail polish to make your simple nail designs shiny and protected. Happy holidays!
