Paw prints are a great way to add a fun and stylish element to your nails. Whether you’re going for a more subtle look or want to make a bold statement, a paw print manicure is a great way to achieve the look you’re after. Whether you’re an animal lover or just want to add a bit of cuteness to your look, this style can be achieved easily with a few simple steps.
The supplies you’ll need vary depending on the look you’re going for, but here are some common items you’ll find necessary in most paw print nail art designs:
- Nail polish – choose colors that match or complement the design you’re going for.
- Dotting tools – these handy little tools are essential for achieving the perfect paw design.
- A base coat – to prevent your nails from staining and to ensure your design lasts as long as possible.
- A top coat – to make sure your design stays in place.
Once you’ve gathered all of the necessary supplies, it’s time to begin the process. Start by applying the base coat over your nails and allowing it to dry completely. Once the base coat is dry, begin to create your paw print design using the dotting tools and nail polish. You can make the ‘toe prints’ using any color you’d like, or use a different color for each toe. You can also use one color and outline the toe prints with a darker shade of the same color or use a sparkly flashy shade for the toes and a darker shade for the paw prints.
Continue on to the details such as the round paws and the tail, adding the details where you’d like them. You can use a thin brush for greater accuracy when outlining the details or you can use a thicker brush for a more artistic look. When the design is finished, apply the top coat in order to protect it. With some simple steps you’ve created a unique and eye-catching nail art design that will last up to a few weeks.
There are a few finishing touches you can add to your paw print design in order to make it unique. You can add customized details such as bows to the nails, or add a bit of sparkle to the design by adding rhinestones or glitter. When choosing colors, don’t be afraid to experiment and play around with ideas. With some practice and a bit of creativity, you’ll be able to create some truly amazing paw print designs.
A paw print design is a great way to express your love for animals or to just add a bit of cuteness to any look. With a few simple steps and some practice you can easily create a paw print manicure that’s sure to get noticed. So, the next time you want to make a statement, why not try a paw print design on your nails?
