The Digit-al Dozen DOES Winter Wonderland, Day 5: Gingerbread House!

Good afternoon, readers! It's the final day of Winter Wonderland Week with The Digit-al Dozen! Today's nail art was inspired by a gingerbread house! Do you make them at home? We haven't yet this year, but it's something on our list to do very soon! I used textured polishes for the candy and icing to give it a little extra depth.

  • The gingerbread base color is OPI Ice-Bergers & Fries topped with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top. 
  • Once dry, I used a nail art brush and OPI Alpine Snow to do the roof, window, door, candy cane, and peppermint details.
  • I went over all of the white with OPI Solitaire.
  • The peppermint and candy canes got stripes of Zoya Chyna.
  • The rest of the candy details were done using dotting tools and these Zoya Pixie Dusts: Miranda, Chita, Liberty, and Solange. 
  • No top coat was used.

What are your thoughts on these gingerbread nails? Thanks so much for reading!
