Summer Nail Art
Option 1: Polka Dot Nails
Paint your nails with a base coat and then your shade of the week. Then using a toothpick, dot polkas all over of a darker, lighter or simply whimsical contrasting shade! Let it dry and then protect with a top coats.
Option 2: Different Strokes
Do you have five different shades of the same colour – chances are, you do! So go ahead – paint each nail in a different shade of the same hue for nail art that’s quick easy and oh-so-simple! BTW, these are called ombre nails if you paint in light-to-dark or dark-to-light order.
Option 3: Glitter Top Polish
Simple glitter top coats can add some much-needed razzmatazz to your otherwise plain Jane nails. Apply a base coat and then paint nails in your choice of poison. Then simply add a transparent glitter top coat all over, or just on the tips for a glittery French look!
Option 4: Patterned Nails
Want half and half nails? So apply base coat and then the colour of your choice on nails. Let dry completely – very important lest the scotch tape peels off the nail paint. Now stick a piece of scotch tape diagonally on your nails. Then using the other shade you want to contrast this with – paint over the nail. The scotch tape will ensure a neat diagonal design – and you can wary the width and angles per nail for some fun!
