Paisley Print Nails

IMG_20160724_212245

Start off with a base coat, I used Revlon’s “Quick Dry Base Coat.”

Apply a base color of your choice, I used Kleancolor’s “Red Alert.”

Then, create a small teardrop shape on the nail and a larger teardrop shape around it. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush and Apple Barrel’s “White” acrylic paint.

Add a tail at the tip of the larger teardrop shape that curves in on one side and dots in the center of the small teardrop shape.

Create small “c” shapes that go all the way around the larger teardrop.

For another paisley shape, create a small circle on the nail.

With a small dotting tool place dots all around that circle and one or a few dots in the center.

Create more of these shapes all over the nails and make sure to have some coming off of the nail to keep it looking more like a pattern/print.

Apply a top coat, I used Revlon’s “Extra Life No Chip Top Coat.”

Gradient French Manicure Nails

IMG_20160717_160720

Start off with a base coat, I used Revlon’s “Quick Dry Base Coat.”

IMG_2522

Apply a sheer light pink as the base color, I used Mayebelline’s Color Show “Born With It” and I applied two coats.

IMG_2524

Paint the light pink color and a white color onto a makeup sponge and have them slightly overlapping. I used Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure “White Out.”

Then, sponge this onto all of the nails with the white part of the sponge towards the tip of the nail.

Repeat this step over all of the nails with a fresh makeup sponge, or you can cut off the top of the sponge used previously with a pair of scissors. This will make the design more opaque.

Apply a top coat to seal in the design and to help blend the colors. I used Revlon’s “Extra Life No Chip Top Coat.” Lastly, clean up around the nail using a Q-Tip dipped in nail polish remover and Born Pretty Store’s “Nail Polish Removal Pen” for the areas closer to the nail.

Ikat Print Nails

IMG_20160710_190658

Start off with a base coat, I used Revlon’s “Quick Dry Base Coat.”

IMG_2495

Apply a base color of your choice. I applied two coats of Jenna Hipp’s “Thin Mint.”

IMG_2497

With another color of your choice, paint some imperfect triangles on the nails. I started off by painting a line where the top would be, then outlining the triangle and then filling it in. On each nail I painted two, one coming down from the top of the nail and one coming up from the bottom of the nail. The thumb was an exception, I painted four triangles, two coming out from the sides and one on the top and bottom. I used Winstonia’s “Fine Line” brush and Jenna Hipp’s “Creme de Cantaloupe.”

IMG_2499IMG_2500IMG_2501

Paint an imperfect oval shape in the center and bottom of each of these triangles using a white color. I used Apple Barrel’s “White” acrylic paint and the same paint brush previously used.

IMG_2503

Using a thin brush and a black color, outline the triangle shapes with small lines. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush and Apple Barrel’s “Black” acrylic paint.

IMG_2505IMG_2506IMG_2507

Outline the imperfect oval shapes using the same materials and technique.

IMG_2509

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Revlon’s “Extra Life No Chip Top Coat.”

Firework Nails

IMG_20160703_183248

Start off with a base coat, I used Revlon’s “Quick Dry Base Coat.”

IMG_2452

Apply a dark or navy blue polish as the night sky, I used MAC’s “Midnight Ocean.”

IMG_2454

With different metallic colors of your choice, paint different shapes as fireworks. Place a dot as the center of the firework for all of the fireworks. I used a welding tool, Essie’s “Jiggle hi, jiggle lo”, Avon Nail Metallics mini (no name), Emori’s Xtreme Wear “Metallic Blue”, “Silver”, “Dream Girl”, and Orly’s “Shimmering Mauve.”

For the first kind of firework,  paint four small lines coming off of the dot.

IMG_2457

Then add longer lines in the spaces with no lines around the circle and if you have enough space you can add longer lines above the shorter lines.

IMG_2458

For the next type of firework add curved lines coming downwards around the dot and coming off from the left and right of the dot.

IMG_2459IMG_2460

For the last type of firework simply add lines coming out from the dot.

IMG_2461

In any of the blank spaces left on the nail, add stars that are the same colors as the fireworks on that nail. Do this by creating a small vertical line and then a small horizontal line intersecting that. Try to make it thick where they intersect but it is difficult because of how small they are.

IMG_2462

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Revlon’s “Extra Life No Chip Top Coat.”
