Lush Peeping Santa inspired nail art

Hey guys! Today I have more on the mani I posted about yesterday inspired by the Lush Peeping Santa bubble bar. He's just so cute, it was a no brainer when I was searching for things to inspire nail art!




I started with Zoya Aphrodite (red), Purity (white), and Codie (brown) for my color pallet.




I used latex because you can't mess around with red-it loves to stain your cuticles!
My original idea was to use the candy cane striped image on the Moyou Festive collection 06 plate. I practiced several times on paper.....






Guys. I tried. Like, 3 times. It kept getting that fold/wrinkle in it! How infuriating! And in different places every time. Every time of repainting that nail, waiting to dry, the whole thing. Am I pressing too hard? My base layer not dry enough? Ugh, I finally gave up and just painted that nail red.



I went ahead with the other nail while I was waiting for the first one to dry and used nail vinyls to tape off the triangle. The little santa was pretty straight forward, I taped off the area I wanted to keep white and used a dotting tool for this and the polka dotted 3rd accent nail. 



These are the 2 stampers I use ( clear Pueen stamper  and  shorter Pueen clear stamper) I have been using the smaller one since I got it, but is is the stampers wrinkling my candy cane stripes? I need some advice, y'all. 




In the end, I was pretty happy with how this mani turned out. It was a frustrating process though!
