Grüß Vom Krampus or Greetings from Krampus!
Here are my nails form the weekend. As Krampusnacht is on the 5th of December I just had to wear some Krampus inspired nail art! 🙂
If you’re not familiar with the legend of the Krampus, he is the devilish companion of St. Nicholas.
St. Nicholas brings gifts and rewards to good children each year on December the 6th and leaves punishing the bad children to The Krampus! The wicked child would be beaten with a bundle of birch sticks, whipped with horsehair, then thrown into a wicker basket and taken down to Hell for a year.
If nothing else it’s definitely a terrifying way to get your kids to behave! Lol!
I spent ages trying to draw a tiny Krampus on my nail, but it really didn’t go well I decided to see if I had any stamping plates with suitable images, and I did! 🙂
The goat skull is from Plate MM11 from Messy Mansion and the tree branches are from plate 14 from Moyou mother nature collection.
I used Lots of Red Polishes for the base of this Manicure
- Barry M Red Glitter
- Chanel Dragon
- Chanel Rouge Noir
- Color Club Rad-icle Gypsy
- Illamasqua Scarab
I smooshed them all together on the back of a stamping plate then used a stamper to splat it onto my nails! It’s a really fun technique, but it is incredibly messy 🙂
for the stamping I used Hit The Bottle Black and Seche Vite to finish it all off
Have you been good this year or did the Krampus Come to get you?
