Hey everyone! Ailesh from Salon Society in Regina, SK here and today we're talking nail art.
I adore nail art - no secret there - and I really feel that sometimes the most beautiful designs are simple elements layered together. So today I've put together an easy tutorial you can follow without needing any sort of advanced techniques.
Step 1 - Base Colour
To start prep your cuticles & nails, apply your primer & base coat, and apply the chosen base design colour on the whole nail of every nail.
Step 2 - Colour Blocks
Next you want to apply your colour blocks. I think that abstract designs look best when each nail has a different shape or amount of colouring blocking done. This imprecise blocking also allows for some imperfection in your designs which is great for nail art newbies!
Step 3 - Add Your Stripes
Now add a thin stripe of colour next to the colour blocks. Don't be too worried about making a super straight clean line - imperfection really adds to the look.
Step 4 - Start Speckling
Using a thin brush or dotting tool, add tiny speckles to the colour blocked area. Once again, don't worry about perfection - we are wanting speckles not perfect polka dots so don't stress! Apply your top coat and voilà you've made art!
