Glitter Gradient Nails

Hi everyone! Sorry for being MIA for so long, I have been getting back into the grove of school. I will be uploading the nail videos and picture tutorials that I had time to capture but not edit yet. Hopefully I can get back on schedule very soon! But for now enjoy these super simple Glitter Gradient nails that will look good on any nail shape for any occasion.

Start off by applying a base coat, I used Orly’s “Bonder Rubberized Base Coat.”

With a glitter of your choice, apply a light layer over a third of the nail. I used Sephora by OPI in “Only Gold for me Top Coat.”

Apply some of that glitter polish on a makeup sponge and then dab that on to about half of the nail, making it more concentrated as you get towards the tip.

IMG_20170903_195759_943

Start off by applying a base coat. I used Orly’s “Bonder Rubberized Base Coat.” (Sorry I forgot to take a picture of this).

Apply a yellow polish as the base color. I used Maybelline’s “Fierce N Tangy.”

IMG_4675

With a striper brush and an orange color paint a few stripes going vertically on the nails. I used Winstonia’s “Short” Striper brush and Craft Smart’s “Tangerine” acrylic paint.

Then paint a thick stripe of pink polish towards the cuticle of the nail, you can just use the polish brush for this and it doesn’t need to be perfect. I used Orly’s “It’s Not You It’s Me.”

Then paint a thick stripe of silver directly below the pink one. I used the same striper brush and Dazzling Metallics “Shimmering Silver” acrylic paint.

Pineapple Nails

Hi everyone! This tutorial is for some pineapple nails! They are pretty easy but look somewhat complex, I got tons of compliments on these! I hope you all enjoy!

IMG_20170903_172946_825

Start off by applying a base coat. I used Orly’s “Bonder Rubberized Base coat.”

IMG_4610

Paint all of the nails with a yellow polish. I used Maybelline’s “Fierce N Tangy.”

With a striper brush and a darker yellow color, paint a quilted pattern on the nails. Do this by creating slanted lines going one direction and then slanted lines going the other direction. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush and Delta Ceramcoat’s “Pale Yellow” acrylic paint mixed with Craft Smart’s “Tangerine” acrylic paint.

With a detail brush and a light green color paint some leaves towards the cuticle of the nails. I used Winstonia’s “Fine Line” brush and Craft Smart’s “Light Green” acrylic paint.

Add some details to these leaves with a very thin detail brush and a darker green color. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush and Craft Smart’s “Crisp Green” acrylic paint.

I went back in to add some more dimension to the quilted pattern. I simply added some more lines right bellow the previous ones with a more brown orange color. I used the berry wine brush again and Delta Ceramcoat’s “Pale Yellow” mixed with “Maple Sugar Tan” acrylic paint.

Pink Stripe Pattern Nails

Hi everyone! This tutorial is for these somewhat simple pink stripe pattern nails! You can easily do this with just nail polish brushes but the lines look better when using a striper brush. You can also use whatever colors you would like as always. I hope you all enjoy! All products used are listed below!

IMG_20170604_173538_061

Start off by applying a base coat, I used China Glaze’s “Strong Adhesion Base Coat.”

IMG_4137.JPG

Choose three shades in a color of your choice, a light, medium and dark. Then apply the lightest shade as the base color. I used Ulta’s “Sugar Cookie.”

With the medium shade, apply a thick strip going horizontally across the middle of the nail. You can fix this up with a striper brush if needed. I used Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails in “Heart of Stone.”

fullsizeoutput_719

With the darkest shade and a striper brush, apply a stripe in the center of the thick stripe just created and a stripe at the top and bottom of the nail. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush and Max Studio’s “Pink Craze.”

Lastly, apply a top coat, once going horizontally to prevent smearing and again the normal way. I used China Glaze’s “No Chip Top Coat.”
