Here's another easy-peasy, basic nail art tutorial for amateurs like myself. Check the first one I did here.
1.Just pick a base color and paint two layers over your nails. I picked this oxblood nail polish, which is oddly called Chestnut 05, because it is nowhere near the color of chestnuts.
2. Using a pair of scissors, cut out thin strips of tape. You can use masking tape as I did, because frankly, that was all I had. LOL. Tape diagonally, leaving about half a millimeter space for the design.
3. Paint over the tape with your chosen color. I wanted a subtle nail art for once for a more sophisticated look, so I chose a red color that is close to the oxblood base.
4. Wait a minute or two to let it set and peel off tape. Ta-da! Your easy-peasy, basic nail art is done.
So easy, right? You can do variations of this. For example, you can cross the tapes to get an X design. You can do horizontal, vertical stripes or a chevron design. And don't limit yourself to just two colors! Go crazy, who doncha? :D
What other sorts of do-able DIY nail arts do you know of? Have you tried them yourself?
