This Christmas, I wanted to have beautiful festive nails so I collaborated with Sammi Nicole Nail Stylist to not only come up with a some fun Christmas nail art but also to try out acrylic nails for the first time! Sammi is a nail artist who works from home out a converted studio out the back of her house. I feel like some of the best nail artists in Auckland that I’ve been to operate like this plus it’s great to support talented local start ups.
I was excited about having acrylics for the first time and Sammy suggested that almond shaped nails would be the best for my fingers. Although it’s Christmas season, living in New Zealand the typical Christmas icons of snowflakes and snowmen just didn’t seem right. Instead, we used the colours red, gold and white which are common ornamental colours on my Christmas tree. Sammi worked her magic using various geometric, patterns and variations – this was the result! It’s a huge reach out of my comfort zone but is something different which is exciting. I can’t wait to see what everyone things of them.
