Things you will need

  • different shades of nail polishes of your choice
  • thin paint brush or bobby pins (in case if your design involves dots)
  • scotch tape or cello tape
  • a pair of scissors
  • round shaped band aid (if you are doing a semi-circle design)

5 Tips to keep in mind when applying nail art

  1. Nails should be neatly manicured before painting. If your natural nails are too short or bitten down, consider applying acrylic nails before painting your design.
  2. You would need to work as fast as possible, since nail polish dries rather quickly. Feel free to mix glitter into the polish colors before painting your nails. Try using stick-on stones to jazz up a simple motif.
  3. To make your designs last longer (since you’ve put in so much effort into it), apply a coat of clear nail polish every two or three days. Don’t use your nails as kitchen tools and wear gloves when doing tasks that may cause damage to your nails.
  4. It’s best to use a Q-tip and nail polish remover to clean any polish application mistakes.
  5. Remember, nail art is like makeup – there are NO RULES! You need to try out things you like and customize it to your choice.

      • please advice me…while nail art when i overcoat a different color it is not neat…. The first coat also becomes wet n mergging with the other colour n becomes clumsy … Is there any specific nail polish for nail art…

      • You will have to wait until each coat dries up fully. Otherwise you would land up with fully smudged nail polish! You don’t need any specific polish for applying nail art… You just have to be patient.

  1. The bobby pin tip worked great because I’ve had this annoying nail biting habit since,like, Forever…
    It doesn’t help that i have really short nail beds.I have started trying to grow my nails out but it doesn’t look nice anyway…
