I am back with another nail art post.. This time a step-by-step art (almost - read on, you'll know why). A little messy as this is the first time I got my hands on nail art tools and brushes..
Today's nail art is inspired from Monarch butterfly..
Monarch butterflies are usually orange in color. But I've used pink for the nail art.. Who can stop a girl's imagination ?? Oh yeah, can anyone stop a girl from loving pink??
Let's move on to the tutorial..
First paint your nails using a pink shade ( you can use any color for that matter).
Paint your tips with a black shade like french tips but at an angle. I think the picture should explain.
Draw a curved line at the lower end of the nail as shown in the pic.
Draw straight lines and form a 'U' near the tip to make the wing pattern. Check the image for reference :P
Apply polka dots white nail polish at the tips. Voila, you're done...
And this is how it looks finally...
One more pic:
Note: I didn't apply a top coat/ clean my cuticles when I took the pics...
I know it really really messy.. But practice makes man perfect, right???
Check this video for more detailed instructions..
Meet you all in my next post..
