My lovely friend lend me her hands today and I was ready do to some new nail art. Inspired by some pictures I stumbled across on Instagram I decided to do a design with stripes and dots.
First I prepared her nails by pushing back the cuticles and removing the shine from her nails. This way the polish should last longer on her nails.
Lets get started with the design. Start off by applying a base coat. Preferably with a nice shimmer to it since it’s going to come through in the design. Then take a thin nail art brush or a dotting tool and choose a colour for the stripes and dots. I went with a navy blue, with a little shimmer to it (Essie-Aruba blue).
For the right hand create vertical lines. Try to get them as straight as possible. But don’t worry you can correct any mistakes with a brush and some nail polish remover.
For the left hand we went with diagonal stripes on the index and middle finger. And on the thumb, ring and little finger I painted some dots. Finish the nail art off with a shiny top coat.
She was really happy with her nails and I had a lot of fun doing the design. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the post. xx
