Reindeer Tutorial!


I know this is a little late, but I think it's too cute not to share!  I got this idea from Olivia's blog, but I wanted to take a step back and do a tutorial, too. It's actually very easy!  Here is what I used:


From left to right:
Zoya Malia
Orly Coffee Break
China Glaze Ruby Pumps
China Glaze Deviantly Daring
Confetti White Wedding
Confetti Black Tie
Dotting tools ($1.99 from ebay for all 5!)


First, do your base coat, let dry. Add your topcoat, let dry.

Grab your darker brown, use the brush for the reindeer head for a circle/head shape, LOL.

Use your dotting tool (or brush, if you've got a steadier hand than I do) to draw antlers:


I feel like that painter on TV who used to say "Now, make a happy tree" and "Let's paint a cheerful fish." LOL.

Use your white to make two dots for eyes. Try to make them the same size or he might look Paris Hilton style wonky!


Take your sparkly red and use the brush or a bigger dotting tool to give him a shiny, red nose:


For the pupils, I def suggest your liner tools or dotting tools:


That's pretty much it! I used my dotting tools to make some dots on the other nails, but you can get creative with whatever you want!


Don't forget to finish your reindeer with another couple coats of your favorite clear. You don't want Rudolph missing an antler before the party even gets started, right?


What do you think of my reindeer? Do you want to see more manis with tutorials, like this??
Hope you had a nice (whatever) celebration over the Holiday!
xoxo, Lacey
