How do I come up with nail art designs? I honestly don't have a clue! I am not like most of the nail art beauties out there who knows what they want and just do it! Me, I don't have a clue on what I plan to do, I always start by choosing a base color then I'll go from there!
My inspiration this week is a frosty pink polish from The Face Shop. I've done gradient nails int he past and I know a lot of you uses sponge, but I am too lazy to do so, this is my own version of Gradient Nails with simple flower. I know a lot of you love dainty designs :) I hope you like this!
Apply a base coat. I am using The Face Shop's Base Coat (yes, due to some requests on how this works, I bought this and will give a good review soon)
Apply 2 coats of any platinum pink polish, I am using The Face Shop's PK101. Let dry.
After the base polish is dry, apply a violet/purple polish in the middle part of the nails. I am using my 2 way nail art pen in Violet/Purple.
While wet, use any base coat that's runny in consistency (I am using Caronia's Base Coat, a local brand), slowly brush the violet/purple polish going inward. Doesn't have to be perfect.
Using the same method as Steps 3-4, apply a pink polish at the tips of the nails... I am still using the 2 Way nail art pen, color is reddish orange.
Using the same Caronia base coat,
brush inward covering a bit of the violet/purple polish.
Again, the more inconsistent, the better.
Making sure the gradient colors are dry, using a white nail art pen, apply dots to create flowers. (Feel free to look back on the right side bar tagged under NAIL ART TUTORIAL on how to create flowers)
Use a yellow nail art pen to create a flower bud. (or any color that suits your taste)
Step 8: (optional)
When nail art is dry, apply a coat of any glittery polish, making sure to apply thinly so that the nail art designs won't be covered. I am using my favorite Elianto Glitter polish.
Apply any TOP COAT of your choice. As usual, I use my HG The Face Shop's Top Coat.
