Tutorial: Floral Nails #2

It has been a ages since I last did a tutorial. So I am back with a super simple tutorial for Floral nail art.

I am thinking of posting more nail arts on the blog.

I have done other Floral nail arts HERE and HERE.

You can check part #1 of Floral nails tutorials HERE

So, let’s begin with this nail art

 

Things you need:

  • Base nail paint 

I used NYC In a minute quick dry nail polish – Blanco 032

Make sure to choose a quick drying one. I made a blunder of not choosing a quick drying one and ended up with untidy design 😦

  • Nailpaints for flowers

You can choose whichever shade you like. I used Nykaa Neon Matte in shades Cherry Pop (Orange) and Pink Lemonade (Pink).

See the proper swatch of these nail polish HERE.

 

  • Green nailpaint for leaves

I did not have a proper green color, so I had to make do with this pastel mint green nailpolish by Note (shade: 71 Mint)

 

  • Toothpick!

Thats’s it.

 

Steps for an awesome Floral Nail art

  1. Paint the base color of your choice. I chose white as it is a perfect canvas for any nail art .

    Check out some amazing nail arts I did using White base HERE

 

2. Using back of the toothpick place random colorful dots on the nails. Make sure not to dot too closely.

 

 

 

 

3. Using the pointed end of the toothpick, pick up some white nailpolish and draw swirls inside the colorful dots you painted.

(I know mine looks bad. Blame the crappy white nailpolish I used)

 

 

4. Using the pointed end of another toothpick, pick up green nailpolish and add random short lines around the colorful dots. This will make the leaves.

 

 

 

5. Seal with a top coat. Tadaaa!

 

 

 

Hope you find this useful.

Golden Polka Dots nail art

 

It has been a while since I last posted Nail art. I had the pics of this nail art lying and I thought to put it to better use 😛

I love polka dots nail art as they are easiest to do without much effort and look the funkiest. I have done other Polka dots nail art. Do check it HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

This is one super simple nail art and all you need is a bobby pin/ toothpick/ dotting tool and nailpolish of your choice.

I clicked the pics after 2-3 days I did the nail art that is why you can see tip wear on my nails.

I have used Maybelline Colorshow nailpolish in shade Bold Gold.

Nail Art: Floral

 

It has been a while since I posted a nail art, and this one has been sitting in my folder for sooo long. This is an easy peasy floral nail art.

I chose the color pink, but you can pair it with any color of your choice.  This is one of my go-to nail art when I dont want to spend much time doing it. All you need to do this nail art is a dotting tool/ bobby pin/ tooth pick and your choice of nail polish. I like to do my dots using a tooth pick as it gives more uniform dots.

Do try this nail art and link back if you like 🙂

Pop of Blue – Tribal Nail art

Spring/Summer is in full bloom now and its the perfect time to flaunt them bright paws. Though I do not follow this dark-for-winters or bright-for-summers thing religiously, I thought this bright, funky nail art is just perfect for this time.

I love tribal design. On clothes, on footwear, on nails- you give it to me and I will wear it happily. Actually I am on a hunt for bright funky tribal sandals for the summers. But I never seem to find the right one. Anyhoo, I hope you like my pop of blue nail art.

Actually I chose this combination of orange and blue accidentally. I wanted to wear orange nail polish and suddenly I spotted this blue one and I wanted to wear this one too. And I thought why not  mix ’em up and have some fun 😀

I have done tribal nail art before as well. Check it HERE. I have created the design using nail art pen. You can use an old eye liner brush as well.

Nail polish used :

Orange: Colorbar Tangerine Mojito

Blue: Maybelline Colorshow – Blueberry Ice

Valentine’s day Nail art – Part 4

cute love nail art

 

Hi

I’m really high on Valentine’s nail art this time. This is the 4th part of the series. You can check others here

Valentine’s nail art Part 1

Valentine’s nail art Part 2

Valentine’s nail art Part 3

Since Valentine’s is all about love and hearts and pinks, I incorporated all of this into one nail art. I always say that white is a great base color for nail art, but I wanted to use some other color this time. So I settled on this pink and white combination.

I wanted to make it a couple’s nail art but I had already done one before (Part-1 of series above *if you still haven’t checked it, go check it fast fast*). So being a student of biology, I drew the symbols of male and female as an alternative 😀

If you don’t know about it, male is represented by this symbol of Mars –  ♂ : a circle with an arrow pointing north-east. Female is represented by the symbol of Venus – ♀ : a circle with a small cross underneath.

I took the liberty of drawing a pink bow on the female symbol ^_^ (Okay, also to make it look like a female. Otherwise these are just weird shapes for a layman).

love biology nail art

 

The black nail art pen I used went gloopy, that is why I couldn’t draw perfect circle and that is why they look alien-ish

Anyhoo, they still look pretty to me 🙂

I always always always do nail art on both my hands, no matter how shaky my left hand is. This is how my right hand mani looked. Not bad, haan.

I drew the hearts using the tips mentioned HERE. Super easy!

And finally I finished it with a glittery top coat on pink nails and some polka dot on my thumb.

Nail polishes used:

Pink: Colorbar Nail Lacquer – Rose Quartz 92

White: NYC In a minute quick dry nail polish – Blanco 032

Glitter top coat: Colorbar Pro Glitterati Top coat – Retro Pink

Glitter on thumb: Maybelline Color show Glitter Mania – Pink Champagne

Valentine’s day Nail art – Part 3

valentine nail art

 

I am back with another Valentine nail art. You can check part 1 and 2 HERE and HERE

Since valentine’s is all about love and love involves hearts, I painted big hearts on all my nails.

Plus my nails were short so I couldn’t draw anything else 😀

I wanted to keep the base dark so I chose red color (color of love). You can choose any color of your choice.

All you need to do for this nail art is:

1. Paint your base color

2. Make a rough heart like shape. I draw my hearts directly using the nail polish brush. For reference, you can see a tutorial on easy way to draw hearts.

3. Using a black nail art pen or a thin brush, draw the outlines of hearts using black polish

And Tadaaa…. You have cute hearts sitting on your nails 🙂

The Red nailpolish I used is Colorbar Pro nail lacquer in shade ‘Rosie’

White one is NYC In a minute quick dry nail polish in shade ‘Blanco 032’

I recommend using a fast drying polish for outline. Otherwise if it smudges, the whole look will get ruined.

Movember Moustache nail art

moustache nails

Can’t believe its November already. This year went by so fast (well this is a recurring dialogue every year, I know :D). But seriously, it feels like- where did the time fly? For me the starting of winters always have mixed feelings- the happiness for the onset of my favorite season, and the sadness for another year going so fast. Don’t you ever feel we are growing so fast. Wish there was a slow down button in life as well. *Sigh*

Anyhoo, since November is here and it is also the month for raising  awareness of men’s health issues (or Movember, as it is called), I did a nail art for same. Movember (Moustache + November) is the time when men from all over the world grow facial hair in attempt to raise charity for men’s health awareness- particularly prostate and testicular cancer. Read more about it HERE.
Actually I did not intend to make this a Movember nail art. I only painted my nails with yellow nail polish. And I couldn’t resist drawing little smileys on it. I accented it a little with moustache on ring finger. That is how I came up with this Movember nail art.

I am not among the girls who paint their left hand (non dominant hand) prettily and keep the poor right hand nails tattered and ignored (Yes girls in metro- flashing their pretty and well groomed left hand nails happily- I’m talking to you!). I never keep my right hand nails bare. I ALWAYS paint both hands, no matter it ends up looking wee bit untidy. And this is how it looked with this nail art.

I know the moustache looks weird okay, but still I managed to make it look like a moustache 😛
Don’t you think it looks like the moustache of old rural people who keep their moustache long and groomed.
