How to do it

  1. Start with applying a base coat ( optional) to protect your nailsCheck out the photo I created
  2. Color the index finger nail with the coral , orange and red shade . Start by making a vertical line with the coral shade ,  then orange and then red . This can be done by free hand or for a neat look use scotch tape . For this cover 2/3 of the  nail from the right side with scotch tape leaving 1/3 portion on the left of the nail and paint the nail with coral nail paint , then cover 1/3 of the nail from the right with scotch tape and paint
    with the orange nail paint , and finally paint the remaining 1/3 portion with red . This would give the nail a gradient look.
  3. Now to get  black pattern , either striping tape or scotch tape can be used . scotch tape would have to be cut into stripes . Set the tapes as shown in the pictures . Color with black paint .IMG_20150921_184356_HDR Remove all the tapes immediately ( tip: Do not let the paint dry on the tapes , remove them quickly for a neat look )IMG_20150921_184729_HDR
  4. Color the nails of the  little finger , middle finger and thumb with orange nail paint . Set the tapes as shown in the picture . This would divide the nail into  portions . Color the bottom most portion red ,  the portion above it black , leave one  portion  , finally color the portion above it black . Remove all the tapes .IMG_20150922_120938_HDRIMG_20150922_212033_HDR

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 .
