Holly & Berry Nail Stencils from smART Nails Stencils

Holly is a traditional and well know plant used around Christmas time, probably because of it's evergreen leaves.  Did you know that Holly comes in male & female varieties and only the female produces berries.  Here are my Holly & Berry nails using Christmas Ilex nail stencils from smART Nails.  There are 10 stencils per pack, you paint the leaves first, wait for them to dry then paint on the berries.  I applied top coat once the stenciled patterns were completely dry to avoid smearing of the design.  I'm really pleased with the way they turned out and I only used 2 of the 10 stencils per hand.  Stencils are a great way to create nail art.   Simply peel off the stencil from the backing paper.  The stencil is transparent so you can see exactly where to place it on the nail.  Press onto your dry nail and make sure there are no air bubbles.  To reuse the stencil I put the painted stencil on the plastic packaging the stencils came in, wiped the polish off with nail polish remover and it was good to use again.
I highly recommend these stencils because they are easy, effective, fun, inexpensive and a great way to decorate you nails.  Check out my video demonstration below.
