12 Days of Christmas Nails: Day 2 (Reindeer Nail Art)

Here goes Day 2 of my Christmas themed manicures! Coming up with ideas for this theme is so much fun and it's really getting me in the mood for Christmas. I thought I'd struggle to come up with 12 designs but as it turns out, I may have a job narrowing it down to just 12!

I can remember as a child being read the poem, 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' every Christmas Eve and I always tried so hard to remember all the names of the reindeer. I'll list all the ones I can remember and you guys can fill me in on the rest... Dancer, Prancer, Donner, Blitzen, Comet, Cupid, Vixen? Haha, am I right so far?


I used an unnamed Collection 2000 white as a base colour.
I outlined the main shape of the reindeer with Barry M Mushroom and then used black and white acrylic paint for the details. The antlers were done with L'Oreal Black Bean. Rudoph's nose is Barry M Red Glitter over La Femme Cherry Red.

  9. Such a cute design! I love it!

    You forgot Dasher. In "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" it goes: "You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen. But do you recall the most famous reindeer of all?" I'm not sure if these are the same as in the poem, having never read it.

  14. On Dasher, On Dancer, On Prancer and Vixen, On Comet, On Cupid, On Donner and Blitzen! I remember that book. Mine had a green Father Christmas in so i've always thought of him as dressed in green instead of red. These are super cute.
