Applying dots on your nails is a creative and unique way to express yourself or just have fun. Even though they can be a bit shaky and stressful to apply, the end result is absolutely stunning. If you do not have the specific dotting tool, then do not fear. The home remedy to this problem is through something almost all women have; a bobby pin. You simply need to dip the round part of the bobby pin into paint and then start painting your nails.
Grade A Gradient
Another unique nail design that you should consider trying is a grade A gradient. It may look like an impossible thing to do without getting professional help, but if you just believe in yourself and give it a try, you can do it. All you will need to do is get two polish colors, a sponge and a toothpick. When painting the nails, make sure that you start with the lighter color first for the best results.
Graffiti And Studs
If you are the kind of person who does not mind an edgy look, this is one you should try. It is a look that combines street style and glam. During the application of this nail art, you will need to start with a dark base coat and then add light swipes of silver or gold paint. Before using the metallic paints, make sure that you swipe them on the top of the bottle a number of times to be able to see the bristles when you apply.
Throwing paint on your nails haphazardly can also leave your nails with a stunning look. It is one of easiest nail designs that will not give you hard time at all to apply. First, you will need to get your base coat on and then use tape to cover the area around your nails. Once you have done that, take a straw or a number of them and use them to splatter different paint colors on the nails.
To be able to apply this nail design, you will need to invest in patterned scissors. You will need the scissors for creating patterned edges that will perfectly fit on your nails. Take a piece of tape and the use the scissors to cut it into any shape you want. It can be a flowery shape, a star shape, animal shape and so on. Once you are done cutting the shape, all you will need to do is take the shape and then attach it to your nail. After that, paint it away.
You can make your nails look like precious stones with this nail design. Look for some crumpled up plastic because you will need it when applying the nail art. Form a ball from the plastic and then paint proportions of it with a metallic colors. After that, simply dab the ball onto your nails. Using a piece of wood or metallic object, remove the paint that may have been applied outside the nails.
This is a fishnet-style two tone nail design that is going to give you a really great look if applied correctly. It is usually applied using the fabric that makes up a loofah. The first thing you will need to do is paint your nails with one color such as black, white, blue and so on. You can use any color of your choice. Allow the nails to dry and then hold a piece of loofah over them. Paint over the nails with another color of your choice. Make sure that the second color is of a different shade from the first color if you want the end result to be great.
To create the flower petals, you will need to have a flat brush. To apply them, you will need to load one side of the brush with a darker shade and the other side with a lighter shade, something that is referred to as double shading. After you have done that, place the tip of the brush onto your nail while allowing about half of its length to get into contact with the nail. Rotate the brush slightly and then pull it to produce the tip of the petals. When you turn the brush to the other side, make sure that you start it in the same position for the best results.
These are just some of the unique nail designs you can try if you want to achieve a great look. The good thing about each one listed is that they are very easy to apply and can be done by either a beginner or professional. For designs where you are supposed to use two or more colors, make sure that you blend the colors properly. Choose colors that complement each other well. You will need to maintain the nail art properly if you want it to continue looking great.
Think about the tasks that you carry out every day when choosing the nail designs. There are some work environments that may not be friendly to particular nail designs, so you will need to think about the effects your work is going to have on the nail art you choose. The nail polish that you will choose and how it is applied will also determine how great the nail design will look and how soon you will need to redo it.
