Bare accented nails
Easy and versatile, you can have one or two feature nails (or all, it’s completely up to you!) with any colour combinations. Please excuse the messy nails in the picture, I’m sure you guys can do a better job at clearing up!
Tools:
2 contrasting nail varnishes
Base and top coat
Striper brush
Q-tips
Nail varnish remover

Steps:
Prepare your nails by shaping and applying the base coat.
Apply the first coat of the main colour onto 4 or 3 of your nails (depending on how you want to rock this look).
Wait 5 minutes and apply the second coat - repeat this step as necessary.
Take your contrasting colour, remove the brush and try to get off most of the colour into the pot, so that is doesn’t dry horribly while you’re using the striper brush.
Just take a tiny amount from the lip of the bottle and mark at the tip of you nail where you want the accent to fall and drag it down to where you want the tip to be - this wil
|l act as a guideline.
Add more varnish to the brush, but not so much that it will create a really thick, gloopy line. Place the tip of the brush at the bottom corner of your nail, angling it so that it will meet the guideline, and allow the brush to create a straight, even line. Repeat for the opposite side to create a triangle.
Then use the normal brush to fill in the outside of the triangle, try to only use a thin layer of varnish to ensure application is more accurate - wait 5 minutes then repeat for a more intense colour.
Wait 10 minutes to ensure everything is dry then apply a glossy top coat.
Use a q-tip soaked in nail varnish to clear up any mess.      

Colours I used:
JESSICA - 234 CHERRYWOOD

Kusama inspired nails!
Tools:
Base and top coat
Two different nail varnishes
A dotting tool (a toothpick also works well)
Q-tips
Nail varnish remover
Steps:
Apply base coat.
Pick two colours (contrasting, complimentary, or otherwise, it’s your choice).
Paint two coats of your chosen main colour onto all nails.
Leave for around 3-5 minutes to dry slightly.
Choose what nails you want to add the dots to, usually dotting one or two nails has the best effect.
Use the brush to dab a drop of varnish onto the round end of the dotting tool or toothpick (if your dotting tool has two sizes pick the larger one).
Start from the corner of the cuticle and dot in a straight line along, adding varnish to the dotting tool every other dot.
For the next row dot above the spaces between the dots in the row below.
Continue with this method up until the top of the nail.
Leave for 5-10 minutes and then paint over with a glossy top coat.
Use a q-tip soaked in remover to clean up any mess.
