 I LOVE PLAYING AROUND WITH NAIL COLORS, EXPLORING DIFFERENT STYLES AND DESIGN. THIS IS ONE OF THE NAIL ARTS THAT I'M REALLY PROUD OF (I ALWAYS GET A LOT OF COMPLIMENTS WHEN I DO THEM!) HERE ARE STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO GET THIS NAIL ART!    

Things you'll need:

  1. 4 different nail colors of your choice (A, B, C, D)
  2. Top&Base Coat
  3. Stones, Nail Studs
  4. Nail glue
  5. Tweezers
  6. Nail Polish Remover&Cotton Bud
  7. A little love for art ;)

I used:

  • Colors

(A) Mint Candy Apple by Essie  

(B) Purple Palazzo Pants by OPI

(C) Yellow - Pippa by ZOYA

(D) White - Alpine Snow by OPI

Top&Base Coat

     Dry Fast Top Coat by Seche Vite

This is by far the BEST top coat I have! It drys quickly and makes the art look polished, and prevents from chipping.

    Nail Foundation Priming Basecoat by butter London

Base coat is a really important element to prevent your nails from staining and make the nail art last much longer. You can use top coat as a base coat, but as base coat is much harder, the nail polish sticks to the nails better hence, top coat should only be used as an alternative if you ran out of your base coat.  

  • Stones & studs

I got my stones, studs and nail glue from Daiso, a dollar store in Japan. Get Similar

  • Nail Polish Remover

OPI Polish Remover

 

 1. Prep and Protect your nails

Prepare your nails by shaping them, and clean with a nail polish remover so there is no oil on the nails. Apply base coat and let it dry. 

2. Paint your nails

Paint color 'A' into #1 section. My color 'A' was mint blue. Let it dry.  Apply Color 'B' to #2 section. I chose lilac purple. While that dries, color your middle finger, #3 area, with color 'C'. For this, I chose Yellow. Finally, paint the pinkie finger with Color 'D'.  Mine was White. Wait 5 to 10 minutes, or until it's completely dry before moving onto next step.

                                                                             

 3. Put stones and studs

Choose stones and studs you want to accessorize your nails with. Put some Glue on the back of the stud/stone and put where ever you want with tweezers. I personally like to place between Color 'A' and 'B'.  

                                      4. Seal It

Once the glue dries, and the studs and stones are in place, go ahead and top it off with top coat!    

And.. You're done
