Ash's Nail Tutorials 1 (New Series)Saturday, September 21, 2013
Good afternoon, lovelies!!
I decided that I would start a newer series of posts for my blog. At least once a week I will try to make a tutorial for different nail art designs. :D
If there are any tutorials you would like for a certain design, just send a comment my way and I try to do what I can to make it happen. :)
Today is day 1 of Ash's Nail Tutorials, and the design we will be creating looks like this:
Step 1: Start with a fresh, clean nail (or a false nail, like I used above)
Step 2. Paint nail the desired base colour, adding as many layers as necessary to reach an opaque look. (For this look I used China Glaze Velvet Bow)
Step 3. Spaced evenly apart and leaving a good amount of space in-between, add some large half-sphere beads all around the nail.
Step 4. Fill in the bare areas between the large beads with smaller half-sphere ones. Leave a little bit of space between each bead.
Step 5. After adding a bit of sticky top coat to the top of the nail, start placing small beads (caviar-style) in a criss-cross pattern. (You will periodically have to add fresh top coat to keep the area adhesive.)
Step 6. Add some top coat, and you are done! :D (My top coat is a bit old and thick, so there are some bubbles)
As you can see, achieving a lovely nail art look can be really easy and fun!! :D
What do you think of my first (well, first in this series anyway! XD) nail tutorial?
Have an amazing day! :D
