Candy Cane Nail Art

Saturday, 26 November 2016

With December fast approaching I have been starting to prepare for Christmas by buying lots of yummy treats for the 'Christmas Cupboard' (this year it's an old chest of drawers in our spare room). I have picked up Roses, Heroes, Quality Street, and loads of mint chocolate as it's my fave (After Eights, Thornton's Mint Selection, Matchmakers etc) but there is one thing noticeably absent from my minty hoard, Ghiradelli's Peppermint Bark.


As I haven't been to America this year, I haven't managed to grab any and as I'm not a millionaire, I am not prepared to spend the small fortune it costs to get it shipped here. 

So I decided to make it and although this first batch was no where near as yummy as Ghiradelli's (recipe changes need to be made), it's better than nothing. 


Drawing inspiration from my favourite Christmas treat I created these Candy Cane nails. I used Nails Inc King's Cross Road for the base and then made some stamping decals using Moyou 'white' and Nails Inc 'Portland Square' (reviewed here).




I love this design, these maybe my most favourtie Christmas nails I've done to date. Now I'm off to make some more Peppermint Bark, these nails have got me craving minty chocolate.

Do you like these nails? What's your favourite treat to eat at Christmas?

  1. Love your candy canes! Not heard of peppermint bark before, sounds good though. We always have mountains of mint matchmakers, Terry's chocolate oranges and whatever liqueur chocolate we can find!

    1. Terry chocolate oranges are amazing. I also picked up some mint and orange chocolate crisps from Lidl, they look like pringles but are chocolate!
      Glad you like the nails xx
