Easy Santa's Hat Nail Art | Step By Step Demo

For the third and final nail art step by step Christmas demo this year I am going to be showing you how to create this Santa's hat design.

What You'll Need:

  • Basecoat,
  • Sheer white polish - TGB's Diana,
  • Glittery silver polish with a golden reflex - TGB's Snow Queen,
  • Red shimmery polish - TGB's Ruby Port,
  • Shimmery rose gold polish - TGB's Rose Gold,
  • Dotting tool,
  • Detailer or liner brush, and 
  • Topcoat

Step One:
For the first step of this design, you will need to apply a base coat to the entire nail and cure it. Next, you'll want to take a detailer or a liner brush with Ruby Port to start to carve out the top of the hat. You'll want to make sure that the left-hand side of the hat has a deeper curve to it. Once you are happy with the shape, fill it in and cure.

Step Two:
Once you've painted the top of the hat you'll want to do draw out the rest of the hat. To do this you'll want to go from just in on the right side of the hat and draw a slightly curved line that ends three-quarters of the way down the nail. Then draw another line downwards that curves at the end and connects the two lines by a cut off line where the ball will sit.

Step Three:
Now that you've got the hat mapped out, feel free to fill that part of the hat in with Ruby Port and cure it. Next, you'll want to add a little fluffy ball at the bottom of the hat. Using a dotting tool create the ball by going in with Rose Gold.

Step Four:
To add a bit to the background of the nail go in with one coat of Diana and then a light coat of Snow Queen to add a snowy-like background to the scene.

Step Five:
To finish off the hat I went in with a few curved lines at the top of the hat with Rose Gold to tie in the sparkle from the ball at the end of the hat. Once you have done that you'll want to go in with a top coat and cure the whole thing for the final time.

That is how you can create your own Santa's hat following those simple steps. Of course, you could change the design of the hat to add dots or stripes if you wanted to. It's totally up to you!

As that was the final nail art Chrismas design I am showing you this year, I'd love to know if you liked seeing these demos. Were they helpful and have you managed to recreate this or any of the designs on yourself or your own clients? Thanks for reading,
