    Floral Nail Art
    For these tutorials, USe Sally Hansen Extreme Wear in Lacey Lilac, Deep Purple and Mint Sorbet.

    Tips & tricks

    • Don't have a dotting tool? No problem!! Try to use with the head of a bobby pin.
    • Don't be afraid to mix up your color combos.
    • For a simpler version of the mod floral nail art, skip the lighter dots and just do a center dot.
    • For the lines on the roses, I suggest a fine brush but a toothpick will work in a pinch.
    • If you really hate hand painting, try some rhinestones!

    Nail Taping

    Nail Art!!-taping_tutorial.jpg


    Tips & tricks


    • Use a darker polish for your second color to ensure full coverage with just one coat.
    • Remove the tape when your polish is still wet. If you leave it too long, your second color won't come off smoothly.
    • Make sure your base coat is completely dry or it will come off with the tape.
    • Make the pieces long enough that they hang off the edge of your nail. This makes them easier to peel off quickly.
    • You can do as many colors as you like! Wait until it's dry and try a different shape on top!

    Polka dot nails

    Nail Art!!-polka-dot-nails-tutorial.jpg
    Tips & tricks

    • Wait until your first layer of dots dries until you add the next layer. The colors can bleed together and starting over is SO annoying!
    • Try to add your second dot right in the center of the first. It helps give the optical illusion more POP!
    • Your nails might be a bit bumpy from all the dots, so you might want to add a second layer of top coat.
    • Don't be afraid to overlap your dots.
    • Fill in empty space with dots of different sizes to help create interest.

    Pastel nails

    Nail Art!!-pastel-nails-tutorial.jpg
    Tips & tricks

    • Be careful when you're adding the green. If you put too much over the purple it can end up looking muddy.
    • Always use a make-up sponge, not a kitchen sponge!
    • To clean up our cuticles, just dip a stiff, wide brush in acetone (a Q-tip works, too) and wipe away extra polish.
    • Prefer a video? No problem! Here you go..

    Gradient nails

    Nail Art!!-gradient-nails-tutorial.jpg
    Tips & tricks

    • If your sponge is absorbing too much polish, get it wet, wring it out and then paint on your polish.
    • Try to hold your sponge parallel with the nails and sponge in an up and down motion.
    • This look works better with colors that compliment each other. If you try it with orange and green they might just blend into a mud color!
    • The color you want at the base of the nail should be the first line on the sponge.
    • For clean up, Use pure acetone and an angle brush, just make sure you follow up with cuticle oil as acetone is very drying.
