Instructions
1. Apply two coats of white gel polish.
2. With the dotting tool, paint a circular shape for each ornament using the different polish colors. To create a cone-type ornament shape, draw a tiny swivel tail at the bottom of the circle.
3. Before the red and green ornament paints have fully dried, firmly dab Christmas ribbon of the same color to transfer the print.
4. Apply a thin layer of champagne-toned glitter polish over the gold ornament paint using the dotting tool. Paint a layer of the chunky glitter polish over the pink ornament paint using the applicator that came with it.
5. With the black polish, add spots to the gold glitter ornament using the dotting tool.
6. Take the striper brush and add reflection lines on the red ornament using the white polish.
7. Remove all traces of white polish from the striper brush before carefully adding gold swirls to the cone-shaped ornament.
8. Clean the striper brush again and use it to draw in the ornament caps and hooks with the black polish. Extend the hook lines towards the cuticle bed.
