Nail Art Tutorial: Acrylic Christmas Trees

With all the gel, gel polish, and hybrid gel-lacquers now out there, it’s sometimes easy to forget about the power of colored acrylic for nail art! Follow this tutorial from Stephanie Rochester, a Californian nail artist as she shares how to design the perfect pink trees.

  • Premium Extreme White Acrylic
  • Glam and Glits Orchid pigment mixed with a little white acrylic to get the baby pink
  • Acrylic paints in brown and baby pink for the ornaments
  • Gold glitter from Martha Stewart collection glitters mixed with clear acrylic
  • Cacee UV Gel Top Coat

1. First, lay acrylic down in a tree shape. Let it dry and file the edges into a clean point.
