I originally saw these kind of nails in a magazine and decided to spin it a little to make them my own! I have received a lot of questions on whether I did these myself or not and the answer is “yes”! Let me show you how!
What you will need:
- Sally Hansen: Advanced Hard as Nails, Nylon + Retinol Strengthener
- Sally Hansen: “Back to the Fuchsia”
- Sally Hansen: “Black Platinum”
- Kiss Nail Art Paint in Black (Walgreen’s)
- Sally Hansen: “Mega Shine”
This style is relatively easy as long as you have steady hands. The only difficulty I came across was trying to draw the fine lines on my left hand.
First Step: Prep your nail (file, buff, cut cuticles). Put on the clear Hard as Nails nail polish to help protect your nails and also build up the strength. Putting on a clear coat can also help prevent your nails from being stained by your nail polish.
Second Step: Apply “Back to the Fuchsia” (hot pink) to your thumb, middle, and ring fingers. Wait until dry and apply a second coat. This is my favorite color of all time so just be aware that you may fall in love with it!
Third Step: Apply “Black Platinum” to you pointer and little fingers. You may have to apply three coats because this is a rather thin paint and will not show a true black with just two coats.
Fourth Step: Take the nail art paint in black and carefully outline the the outer edges of your thumbnail and ring finger. You really want to make sure that this is a thin line, you don’t want it to be too thick. Once you have outlined your nail, draw a thin line down the middle of your nail. Once the line is to your liking make two lines branching out to create a peace sign.
Fifth Step: For your middle finger, we are creating a french manicure. Draw a line that follows the curve of your upper nail. You may want to make this line a little more thick so it is more apparent.
Sixth Step: Once your nails have completely dried, apply the “Mega Shine” to make sure your new look stands out!
And you are finished!! This is by far my favorite nail design I have tried, I hope you enjoyed it too!! Thank you for reading! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns just let me know! 🙂 xoxo
