How to do Tiger Eye nails, Snowflake nails, and more.
i) Gradient Nails
To make Gradient Nails, start by painting nails with the lightest shade, this coat doesn’t have to be perfect because most of it will be covered up by the gradient anyway. If you’re doing gradient nails using colours from different colour families (Eg. sunset gradient) you should paint your nails white rather than the lightest shade to make the colours pop. Before you apply liquid latex on edges, let it dry. You can use any colours you want, apply it on a wet sponge, start dabbing the sponge on your first nail, move the sponge a bit up and down and from side to side to make sure you cover the entire nail and get a good blend and Finish your Gradient Nails with a matt topcoat.
ii) Tiger Eye Nails (How To Do Tiger Eye Nails and Snowflake Nails)
For Tiger Eye Nail Polish You are going to need a black gel polish a tiger eye magnet preferably one that has a round end and a rectangle end and then, of course, you’re going to need your cat-eye gel. Take the gel brush just dip it in there. Take the bigger side of the magnet and turn it diagonal, vertical or you can turn it completely horizontal, whatever you prefer. You will see how that cool Tiger Eye Nail effect shows up.
iii) Rose Nail Art
To make Rose Nail Art, it’s almost like drawing layers in a circle, big layers on the outside, smaller layers on the inside. It shouldn’t touch each other because they are supposed to overlap. Start drawing your layers in small circles and it will start to shape up like a rose. Make sure to overlap a bunch of little lines together to make it look like a rose and your Rose Nail Art is done.
iv) Snowflake Nails (How To Do Tiger Eye Nails and Snowflake Nails)
To make Snowflake Nails start with a base colour, use a striper brush and some white polish and just draw a straight white line down the centre of your nails, finish the line and do the same length stripe diagonally on both sides. Make a star shape, then take a much finer brush and draw snowflake dots around the star. do the same thing but a little bit closer and towards the centre of the star shape. Add branches on each star line to make your Snowflake Nails look Christmassy.
v) Neon Yellow Nails
To achieve the Neon Yellow Nails we need three layers, first, apply one layer of clear base coat then to make your nails opaque apply two layers of white nail paint, and then the last layer of neon nail polish. Don’t forget to seal the Polish by painting the top of the tip to protect it from peeling off and cracking. To clean the edges use 100% pure acetone and an angled brush. Achieve a shiny nail finish by applying a clear gel nail polish as a topcoat.
