Cool Dude Nail Decorations
These snowy "cool dude" nail decorations give new meaning to the term "frosted nails." This Christmas, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Step 1: Paint nails blue. Let dry.
Step 2: Using white paint to create the snowman's body, paint a large circle that appears to be extending off the bottom edge of the nail.
Step 3: Using white paint, paint a smaller circle (the snowman's head) resting on top of the bottom circle. Let dry. (Repeat steps 2 and 3 if white paint looks streaky.)
Step 4: Using black paint, paint a small square at an angle on the snowman's head. Add a thin line of black paint under the square.
Step 5: Using black paint and a toothpick, add 2 small dots for eyes and 4 or 5 dots in a curved line for a smile. (Make sure you leave room for the snowman's nose!)
Step 6: Using orange paint, paint a long, thin triangle that starts just under and between the 2 eyes and comes to a point just beyond the right edge of the white circle.
Step 7: Using red paint, paint a thin red line separating the snowman's head and body and a slightly thicker line cascading down the left side.
Step 8: Using green paint and a toothpick, add 3 small dots of holly to the hat.
Step 9: Using white paint and a toothpick, add several tiny white dots to the blue background to represent snowflakes.
