( Review of Nail paints in my last post)

How to do it :

  1. Paint the nails with the pastel green color. If the paint is not very Opaque , like mine wasn’t , First use white nail paints and then top it with the green paint . It would make the color pop.PhotoGrid_1458407667253
  2. Put striping tapes as shown in the picture.
  3. Paint to the last tape with the silver color and then remove the tapes asap ( If the tapes sit with the paint for too long the lines would come uneven )
  4. Top it with a Top coat to give it a glossy finish (optional)q

Gold Bobblicure

What you need:

  • Black Nail paintScreenshot_2015-12-09-00-26-25
  • Metallic Golden nail paint
  • Clear nail paint
  • Base coat/ Top coat ( optional )

What I have used:

  • Blackout By Maybelline ( colorshow)
  • Bold Gold By Maybelline ( colorshow)
  • Crystal Clear By Maybelline ( colorshow)
  • Very me Top and Base coat By Oriflame

This look is fancy , yet it isn’t glittery or flashy . It is perfect for weddings or festive season because the colors are such that they would look good with almost all things . The best thing about Bobblicures is that they look as if its very difficult to make them , and that you need to have special nail art skills  , but the reality is that its extremely easy to make. So lets get started 😀

How to do it :

  1. Start by applying the base coat to protect you nails (optional ).
  2. Paint the thumb , little finger and the middle finger nails black .Screenshot_2015-12-09-00-26-18
  3. For making the Bobblicure apply the clear nail paint on the index finger nail , but do not let it dry . Immediately take the gold nail paint and make dots with the nail paint brush . Try to make three vertical lines with the dots , making the dots in the middle line bigger than those in the other two . You would notice the dots expanding in the clear nail paint and taking different shapes .
  4. Do this on all the other fingers , apply clear nail paint on the black paint after it has dried , then make the dots .
  5. Seal the design with a fast drying top coat . In case you are not using a fast drying top coat , then try to not touch you nails for atleast 30 minutes . It would appear that paint has dried but the moment it touches anything hard there would be an impression on the nails.

Hope you like it 🙂

Monochrome Nails

This is a very chick and extremely simple to do nail art . Although any colors can be used to do this , but white and black give the best results. It looks time consuming , but it would take not more than 15 minutes to do it .

What you need

  • black nail paintPhotoGrid_1444152635753
  • white nail paint
  • clear nail paint
  • top and base coat ( optional)

What I have used

  • Blackout by Maybelline ( colorshow)
  • Porcelain party by Maybelline ( colorshow)
  • Crystal Craze by Maybelline (colorshow)

PhotoGrid_1444152971570

Max time : 15 mins

How to do this:

  1. Start by applying base coat to protect your nails ( optional)
  2. Apply a generous quantity of clear polish but don’t let it dry . Take the back polish and make random big dots with the nail paint brush , you don’t have to make small precise dots with a nail art brush , but big dots with the nailpaint brush  . You will see the black dots expanding in the clear polish .
  3. Immediately take the white polish and make white dots inside the black dots and in the spaces between black dots . These dots too will spread and expand.
  4. Seal the design with a top coat ( optional). In case you decide not to use a fast drying top coat , then you would have to wait for a minute or two to let the  paints  dry since a lot of layers of paint are there .

Hope you enjoy it 🙂

Usually most nail art designs are difficult to do and to do them with the left hand is next to impossible. This simple nail art can be done even on the right hand nails . Hope you like it 🙂

How to do it

1.Start with applying a layer of the base coat . This step is optional . Base coat protects the nail and prevents nail staining.

2.Next apply the lighter of the two nail paints on all the nails and let it dry .  I have applied the be69abe6ca80ac7507355cb7bc5b07821b407f04e5autiful maybelline green shade . let it dry completely for about 15 minutes .

3.Now take the darker shade and paint the upper half of the nail with it . I have used black for it . If you cannot do it correctly by free hand then cut a piece of scotch tape ( not cello tape) stick it on your hand a few times to remove some amount of glue from the tape and cover the Lower Half of all the Nails with Tape . Then paint the upper half with a dark shade 2dd19edd14bd1a515de9d460d525cd49d04da2edand immediately remove the tape .

4.now with the help of a toothpick , or with the tip of a nail filer , or with a dotting tool if you have one , make a dot with the darker shade. wait for it to dry . Then on top if it make a slightly smaller dot with the metallic color ( i have used silver) to complete the look .

5.Finish with a top coat to get a glossy finish ( optional) .

And you are done!

Hope you enjoyed this simple to do nail art design .
