1. Paint your nail in a base coat of your choice. It could be silver/golden or any shade which is in contrast with the second color (to be used for the drip design)
2. Paint a small strip across the nail tip. Use a toothpick to make sure the line falls in place
3. Make 2-3 large dots on the nail (don’t touch the strip you just made). Use a stud earring for to make fuller dots
4. Connect these large dots with that strip you drew earlier. Make sure to connect them neatly and individually
5. Add a layer of top coat for a smoother, shinier nail
6. Use an ultra-thin brush to make an outline around the drips. While making the black outline, try to keep it as thin as possible. Also, hands mustn’t shake while outlining the drips
7. You can use some embellishments, like sparkles or shiny dust to make drips look glittery
Drip nails are pretty versatile and fun to do at home. But, if you are planning to attend a wedding, then you can go for a something more sophisticated and dressy. Take a look at these awesome nail art designs and wear them in style all through the summer months for a chic look.
Have fun with your nails!
