Take a look at our 4 highly recommended nail art designs which can be done using a sponge, toothpick, glitter dust and scotch tape at home.
Sassy and easy-to-do at home, gradient nail art can be easily done using a sponge. In addition to that, you would also require nail polish colors that compliment each other. If you want to go bold, you might want to experiment with a ‘too contrasting’ combination. Get started by using the lightest of the two shades you select, and, paint your nails. Once dry, take the bathroom sponge and dab it directly down on to the graduation (basically, that point where the second nail polish meets the first one on a flat surface). Now, dab the sponge directly on to your fingernail. The trick is to gradually and slightly move the sponge up and down your nail.
2. Polka Nail Art:
One of the easiest nail art designs for beginners, polkas can be easily created using the tip of a bobby pin or a toothpick. You can achieve simple as well as stylish polkas at home. For perfect dots, we recommend you purchase the dotting tool from the market. Opt for tools with one sharp end and one blunt end. You can be very creative when painting your nails in polka dots. However, it is best to go for this nail art if your nails are slightly long-ish. The effect is more dramatic when the canvas is big 🙂
3. Glitter Nail Art:
Glitter and glamour go hand-in-hand. Besides, what better way to add bling than to paint your fingernails in the golden or silver dust? The easiest way is to purchase a bottle of glitter polish. Apply a base coat of any color that you want and when it is completely dry, apply a dash of glittery polish on the base coat. That’s it! For a classy look, apply an elegant shade like coral, and on the ring finger, apply a coat of glitter in a shade from the same color family. Better still, for a true diva look, paint your nails with a really loud ‘fiery festive’ orange shade. Then use your artistic creativity to stick multi-colored sequins for an ultimate look!
4. Stripes Nail Art:
Gorgeously symmetrical nail art design meant to be flaunted by those who love everything perfect. To be able to achieve the straight lines, it’s best to make use of a tiny scotch tape-cuts. From a simple diagonal to gingham/plaid, everything can be achieved at home!
