Have you been obsessed with watching all the nail art videos on social media? The process is always satisfying, and the result looks beautiful. The trendy colours and shining accessories almost make you want to try it yourself. Well, that no longer has to be a dream since you can get affordable nail art supplies online. As such, read on to find out some of the coolest things you can do to your nails:
Making Flowers Using Bobby Pins
You cannot go wrong with cute little floral designs anywhere, especially not in nail art. So, put on a base colour and dip the round end of your bobby pin in another colour. You can use it as a dotting tool and make small flowers on your nail. And for brownie points, get a third colour and use it to make the centre dot of the flowers.
Using Geometric Designs
It’s time to put all that 8th-grade math and add some quirky elements to your nail art.
Apply a pastel base colour, and then pick up two other (preferably darker) colours. Use those to make filled in diagonals on your nails and create cool designs. You can even go the extra mile and throw in a sprinkle of glitter.
Make It Fruity
When the whole world is going healthy, there is no reason for your nails to feel left out. So with a few nail paints and a toothpick, you can convert your nails into delicious-looking fruits (would not recommend eating them, though).
Apply a base paint matching the colour of the fruit you want to paint. Then, dip the tip of a toothpick in a different colour and make tiny “seeds” over your nail. Dip the toothpick in green nail paint and make small leaves for the full effect.
Making Use of Negative Space
To get one of the trendiest looks, make use of the negative space. For that, you may use glitter nail paint as the base coat. Then, cut out two triangular pieces of cello tape and paste them over the nail. Use a bright colour to paint over your nails and quickly remove the cello tape, clean up the edges, and you are left with a beautiful pattern of alternating colour and glitter.
Use Dry Brush Strokes
To get the modern art vibes, use this method.
Apply a light coloured base, and then use a darker colour and dry the brush until it has as little colour as possible. Now, paint some brush strokes on your nails with a little bit of residue colour.
A simple contrast of colours across a diagonal is enough to bring a modern look to your nails. And for that, apply a light colour base coat, and then, using cello tape, cover half the nail. Apply a darker shade in one half and quickly remove the tape. You can use a dotting tool and make a dotted line separating the two colours.
For any nail art you do, be sure to precede and follow it up with a coat of transparent nail polish. This helps the colour stick, and the nail art lasts longer. Meanwhile, you can buy affordable and durable nail art supplies online, and this includes stickers, dotting tools, nail art brushes and glitter jars. So, get your accessories now and make nail art that leaves people amazed.
