Some more nail tips peeps :)
So this is pretty random to be honest. I started with a mint base colour (but as with any of these, you can use more or less any colour) before adding a red crackle affect polish to half the nail, but diagonally. Then I used a gold nail art pen to add three dots parallel to the diagonal line before finishing with a clear top coat. You need a steady hand, but its quite an easy one really and looks really effective.
These are a couple of Union Jack designs I did for the Olympics! The first one is on my Mum so its a bit better than the bottom one which is on myself. I started with a blue base (you can’t really mess with the colours on this one!) then did the white criss cross with a nail art pen quite wide. On top I did the red criss cross with a nail art pen, following the shape of the white one but a bit slimmer so the white can still be seen. As always, cover with a clear topcoat and voila!
Please excuse the messy mani! To get rid of the excess nail polish around the edge of your fingers, dip a cotton bud in some nail polish remover and wipe it off around your nails; what I failed to do here! This is what I call tye-dye nails. I painted the base of my nails with white nail polish that was from a french manicure kit. Next I picked 5 or 6 different colour nail polishes and put a different dot of each colour on each nail. That was supposed to be the end effect, but no, Bella messed it up! As I put the clear top coat on, because I didn’t let the colours dry properly they messed up and smudged. I went with it anyway and voila, tye dye nails; not bad at all!
