DIY Reindeer Nail Art

Caroline Burke

The holiday season is the perfect time to have fun with your nails. Some of us like to indulge in sparkles and glitter nail polish during the party season, but these festive reindeer nails are guaranteed to be a big hit. I'll show you how to create them in easy steps so you can try them this year, too! Who wouldn't love to have Rudolph and his friends on their manicure?

Paint your nails with a base color and let dry.

Grab a light brown nail polish. Use the brush to paint a half circle at the tip of the nail, dab on two ears to create the base of your reindeer. Repeat on all nails.
