I’ve been obsessed with navy nail polishes lately and I painted my nails frequently with this color. I went to my cousin’s house a few days ago and I was in the mood to do some nail art. I only brought a few polishes with me (including the navy). I actually didn’t have anything in mind, I just went with my imagination and I’m glad it came out great.
NAIL ART SATURDAYS: NAVY ART ATTACK
1. The Face Shop’s Lovely Mix Navy Blue Nail Polish (BL601)
2. Etude House Pretty Darling Nails HD Beam in Vanilla Beige (BR307)
3. Etude House Pretty Darling Nails in True Black (WH706)
4. Etude House Pretty Darling Nails HD Beam in HD Beam Gray (WH701)
5. Dental Floss Sticks
7. Top Coat
8. Base Coat
1. Begin by applying base coat on all of your nails to give some kind of barrier. Colored polish can make them yellowish (ooh, it rhymed~!).
2. Paint your thumb, middle finger and pinkie finger with a beige nail polish (you can use white or any creamy colors)
3. Paint Your Pointer and Ring Fingernails with Navy Blue Polish
(you may apply a couple more coats if your polish is a little sheer)
4. Wait for your polish to dry for at least 7 minutes before doing the next step.
5. Using a dental floss stick, lightly paint the string with a black nail polish. Create lines by doing a stamping motion. Hold the floss on the nail while allowing your finger to rotate. This makes it easier for you to do straight lines even when you’re using your non-dominant hand. Do this step on your thumb and pinkie.
Doing the line is as easy as pie!
It doesn’t have to be neat!
6. Repeat the previous step with a greyish metallic polish and a navy blue polish. This will create a really unique pattern that looks so complicated but it really isn’t! I soooo love tricks like these!
(after you’ve applied all three color “strips” you will have something that looks like this!)
7. Cut your nail art stickers into little pieces. You don’t have to get those that are exactly like mine. Just look for a pattern that will go well with your color scheme. If you are the type who loves contrasting hues, you can always change it up and choose other patterns that are in different shades.
Well, hello there!!!
8. Pick a little piece, remove the backing and stick it on your middle nail. Repeat the process until you’re satisfied with how it looks. You can get creative with it at this point. This part is a little time consuming, but it’s definitely worth it because it creates a unique effect on your nails.
9. Once you’re done, allow your nails to dry for at least 10 minutes before finishing it off with a topcoat.
There you have it, guys! This is a great nail art that everyone can really enjoy! I love how the colors are tied up together. Oh, and if you guys want to know where I learned the dental floss trick, click on the video below.
