I love fair isle knits, I have at least three in my wardrobe and recently bought some pj's that are so festive and cosy they inspired me to paint my nails too...!

this nail art only requires a one colour and a white nail art pen, I used my all time favourite by models own called red alert its a brilliantly vibrant pillar box shade that's perfect for festive nails.

after applying a base coat of red alert I used my pen to draw on the lines and patterns (if in doubt paint hearts, snowflakes or diamonds these are commonly found in the patterns) they're just like painting aztec nails but with a more winter theme to them!

one quick sweep of top coat.. you'll have the cutest autumn nails in town, kapow!


hope you like them!

  1. Amazing as ever! :)

    I find looking at patterns on clothing, everyday items to be a great inspiration for nail art.
