art nails


These are some of my favorite nails I have ever done. I love the colors and the pattern and the execution! To learn how to do these yourself, check out the instructional tutorial on my YouTube channel right here! Also, check out the cute little great-for-sharing speedtorial right here!

After cleaning, filing, and shaping the nail and applying a base coat:

1. apply one thin coat of a white polish

2. apply liquid latex or clear tape all around the nail

3. use a makeup sponge to dab on an ombre fading from turquoise to white

4. immediately remove the liquid latex

5. use a small brush and some acetone to clean up any remaining mess 

6. apply one thin coat of quick dry topcoat

7. use a dotting tool and the same white polish to make a quatrefoil design (check out more tips on how to do so in this post!)

8. clean up any mess using a small brush and some acetone

9.  Finish up with your favorite top coat, and then remember to show me your versions or ask questions on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Cynosure and Serendipity, or Nails by Naomi and make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for two new videos a week!
