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!
- 2 contrasting nail varnishes
- Base and top coat
- Striper brush
- Nail varnish remover
- 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.
