Rudolf Nail DIY

One of my holiday traditions is to watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. It has Yukon Cornelius in it and he is my favorite animated Christmas character ever.

Want to see my favorite part of the movie?

I was able to indulge the other night in Rudolph cuteness and Yukon hilarity and that led me to this DIY. Sometimes you just need Rudolph nails.

Bobby Pin

 I painted all of my nails white and added some glitter so they would look like snow. For your reindeer head make a semi-circle with brown polish.

 With a darker brown add some antlers and some eyes, I chose closed eyes because I think it's more whimsy.
 Add a nose, mine is pink since I'm a girl :-) I also put some glitter polish on the nose so it sparkles too!

 If you have a more steady hand than I, I promise it won't look like a 3rd grader attacked your finger ;-)
Now you can sport your Rudolph look! I think Yukon is next for me, I'm just working out how exactly to do it! Eeek!

xo Shannon & Rudolph
