If you know me, then you’ll know that I’m a sucker for an easy nail art design. Since about December last year, I have been really into experimenting all sorts of nail art designs and although some (okay, a lot) were not so successful, I have managed to complete a few designs and think, hey that doesn’t look too bad. And today, was one of those days!
Today I attempted to do a somewhat simple dotty design on my nails, where the dots are concentrated at the base of the nail and then space out towards the tip of the nail. It’s pretty easy and if I can do it, so can you! So here’s how to do it:
1. Choose two colours…one brighter than the other. Being in summery mood, I went for a lilac purple (Rimmel 60 Seconds in 410 Lilac You) and a bright coral/pink (Wet n Wild Megalast in Tropicalia). Paint all your nails in the bright coral except for your ring fingers which you will paint using the lilac. I applied two coats to make sure the colour was nice and opaque.
2. Once the base colours have dried, use either a bobby pin, a toothpick, or a nail art dotting tool, if you have one (I use the Sephora Nail Art Dotting Tool), to paint different sized dots in the opposite colour, on the nail. Make sure to concentrate the dots at the base of your nail.
3. Now seal with a top coat to make sure your manicure stays beautifully shiny. I use the Revlon Colorstay Gel-Shine Top Coat and as you can see it is well loved and in need of a repurchase. However, I do really want to try the Seche Vite one-it’s supposedly the best one out there.
So that’s it! I hope you give this design a go…it’s so easy and makes your nails just that little more interesting and fun! I absolutely love it! What do you think of the design?
