Have you ever loved the look of nail art patterns but thought they were way too difficult to try on yourself? Well think again, cause nail art isn’t as hard as it looks! Read on to find out how you can spice up your nails with some easy to do ideas!
WHAT YOU NEED:
You need 2 of your favorite nail polish colors (one dark and one light) a top/base coat and some rhinestones, which you can usually buy from any drug store or Sally’s beauty supply and a toothpick.
Paint your nails with a base coat, then apply 2 coats of the darker polish.
Once your nails are slightly dry, pour out a small amount of the lighter polish onto a piece of card or paper. Dip a toothpick into the polish and then dab it onto your nail to make a blob/dot. You need to do 5 of these in a circle. They can be in the middle of your nail or off to the side.
When the blobs are slightly dry (tacky) take a new toothpick and place it in the centre of a blob. Then, gently drag inwards. Do this to all 5 dots and you will end up with a flower!
Next, wet your toothpick with a dab of water so you can pick up the rhinestones. Then place a rhinestone in the centre of each flower on your nail. Press down hard as the nail polish may not be very wet by this time. After that, apply a top coat and this should secure the rhinestone properly in place!
It really is as easy as that!
TIP: If you don’t have rhinestones, you can get a polish of a different color and make a dot in the middle of the flowers instead!
