colorful nail art


Sorry that is has been so long. I had even more issues than I thought I did with my pictures and I finally had the time to get them all straightened out. 

These are some fun multi-colored semi-intricate nails that I did for a friend. 
After cleaning, filing, and applying a base coat:

1. apply two coats of base color (in this case, on most nails, dark blue, and on the statement nails, gold.)

2. use a white striper to make designs on each nail

3. go over the designs that are in white with other colors (it is necessary to put white first for the other colors to be able to pop out against the background color) (I decided to put accents of gold on some of the white on the purple nails and to do half purple, half turquoise on the gold nails)

4. Finish up with your favorite top coat, and then remember to show me your versions or ask questions on Facebook, Instagram, Cynosure and Serendipity, or Nails by Naomi!

I have had this idea vaguely in mind for a few weeks, but hadn’t worked out how to execute it to achieve the result I wanted. After my creativity slump this week I wanted something a little more challenging so decided to take the plunge. I used Barry M - Coconut, OPI - Just Lanai-ing Around and water decals by KB Shimmer. It’s like a little bit of Spring is peeping through on my nails.
