If you love the art of painting your nails, but don’t think you have the skill or patience to master the technique, don’t worry, you too can join this club of fashionable beauty. With just a few tools and a bit of practice, you can create your own unique nail art designs in just a few easy steps.
Design 1: Tri colored French Manicure
A French manicure is a classic look. If you want to give it a twist by mixing colors, you can create a subtle yet pretty effect. To do this, you need a light pink polish, a dark pink polish, and a white one. Start by applying the light pink polish to the whole of your nails. Now create a curved shape of the dark pink polish on the surface of your nails. Finally, use the white polish to paint the tip of your nails. This will give you a tri colored French design. You can finish it off with a top coat of clear polish.
Design 2: Simple Glitter Manicure
Glitter is a great way to add a bit of glamor to your nails. To achieve this simple look, simply choose a color of glitter polish and apply two coats of it to all of your nails. You can go for a single color or mix different colors of glitter for a more dramatic look. When the polish is completely dry, apply a top coat of clear polish to make those sparkles stand out even more.
Design 3: Color Blocking Manicure
Color blocking is a trend that has been around for quite some time and now it has trickled down to nail art designs. You can achieve a great color blocking manicure with just two polishes – one light and one dark. Start by painting all your nails with the light color and let it dry completely. Now, take the dark color and with a detailing brush, paint the tips of your nails with it. This should give you a neat block of color. Once done, finish with a top coat of clear polish.
Design 4: Confetti Manicure
Let’s get a bit playful with this one! You just need a few polishes of different colors and something to apply them with. Begin by applying a base coat of neutral polish. When it’s dry, start applying the different polishes with the applicator, in random sections of your nails. You can try different shapes and design. Finish with a top coat of clear polish to protect your work and voila!
Design 5: Flower Power Manicure
This design looks so pretty and delicate – you can thank us later! For this design, use your favorite colored polishes and a detailing brush. Begin by applying the lightest polish all over your nails. When it’s completely dry, use the detailing brush and the darker polish to create a flower pattern. You can outline it and then fill it in. If you want, repeat the process with another color. Finish your design with a top coat.
