---En Español - Hola todos! Muchos de ustedes ya vieron un vistazo de mis uñas de "Candy Cane" por medio de mi cuenta de Instagram (Búscame @mariemcgrathpty) y hoy les quiero mostrar como hacerse ustedes mismos estas uñas adorables para Navidad!

Para este proyecto vas a necesitar:
  • Esmalte de uñas blanco y rojo
  • Tape y tijeras

Candy Cane Nails 

To get this cute mani, all you need to do is follow four easy steps:

  1. Apply a coat of white nail polish to each nail and let dry. It is very important to let your nails dry completely (I would wait at least half an hour or so depending on the nail polish).
  2. Cut two thin strips of tape and apply them to your nail diagonally as shown in the photo.
  3. Apply a coat of red nail polish on your nail covering the tape and non-tapped areas. Let it dry a bit, maybe 5 minutes or so.
  4. Remove carefully the tape from your finger.

All done!!

Para hacerte este manicure divertido, solo necesitas seguir cuatro pasos:

  1. Aplica una capa de esmalte de uñas blanco a cada uña y déjalos secar. Es muy importante que dejes secar completamente tus uñas antes de continuar (Yo esperaría por lo menos media hora dependiendo del esmalte de uñas).
  2. Corta dos tiras de tape delgaditas y aplícalos a tus uñas en forma diagonal como se ve en la foto.
  3. Aplica una capa de esmalte de uñas rojo cubriendo toda la uña (cubriendo los áreas con y sin tape). Déjalo secar un poco, como 5 minutos más o menos.
  4. Remueve con cuidado el tape de tus uñas.

Listo, ya terminastes!!

These cute nails are simply perfect for the holidays, don't you think?! You can paint all of your nails as candy canes like I did, or you can just paint one accent nail and leave the others white or red! Either way is adorable, Merry Christmas everyone :)

Estas uñas adorables son perfectas para Navidad, no les parece?! Puedes pintarte todas las uñas de "candy cane" como lo hice yo, o puedes pintarte solamente una uña y dejar las demás blancas o rojas. De ambas formas se ve adorable, feliz Navidad a todos!
