Quick Tips For Nail Art
Super quick nail art is not rocket science – so here are some ideas that help you create fun nails, quickly.
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!
Option 5: Reach for your Vellvette Box
Tired of nail paints that smudge, peel and just make your nails look worse than bare? Bling up your nails without going to the salon. Bling’s Nail Stickers are in essence peel and wear nail paint – you peel them off, stick them onto your nail and cut off the ends or excess. Simple and stylish nail art! To remove, rub a remover-soaked cotton pad till the sticker dissolves or comes off!
Now that’s one way to super quick nail art!
