For this week’s beauty post I decided to try my hand once again at nail art.This nail style requires zero experience and it is not super original what so ever. I just thought it looks nice and interesting but still simple.
First of all, you will need to pick a color. I went for a pink color not because I am too girly but because it is summer and pink is a very summery color. And lately I had been wearing a lot of print and these prints have a lot of pink-ish details to them.
After you have chosen a color, look through your nail polishes and pick 5 different shades of that color. Try to mix and match them: pick one darker, one lighter, couple of sparkly ones, couple of solid ones and you can even go for a matte nail polish.
I have chosen quite bold pink/orange/coral color for my thumb (Maybelline Colorama 91) – try to make your thumb the boldest of the nails, it will be like a delicate accent to the whole hand.
I painted my index finger with a sparkly light pink polish from Rimmel London 60 seconds line.
My middle finger has almost the same shade as my index finger does but the polish is solid not sparkly – Lotus Effect 55K.
My ring finger and little finger also have similar violet/grey/pinky shade on them. Ring finger is painted with a translucent polish with big sparkles (Uma cosmetics duo nail polish 01) while little finger has shiny grey polish with violet undertones from Avon (nail wear pro 021).
All the nails are painted with double coat of color nail polish and also a single coat of top coat. I also would like to mention that this kind of nail style lasted almost two weeks on my nails with minimal damage and chips.
I hope that you like this kind of idea for nails. You can use a different color and find shades that you like and truly make it your own.
