Spray your way to a cool nail art
Tried your hands on spray painting with a toothbrush in school? It’s time to put your skill to use. Start with a white base coat. Run a small toothbrush through drops of nail colour of your choice and just spray! Remove the excess product using a Q-tip dipped in nail remover.
Fishnets for fishnet nail art, duh!
To ace the fishnet nail art, all you need is a… fishnet! Cut a small portion of fishnet and place it on the nail. Mix a few drops of two nail shades of the same colour family and dip a sponge into the mixture. Press the sponge onto nails and remove the fishnet. Finish off with Lakmé Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish in Top Coat.
Use a fan brush for colourful strokes
To get a colourful striped manicure, begin by applying a light shade on nails. Next, get hold of your highlighter brush or fan brush and run it through drops of different nail colours. Use it to paint stripes on the nails.
Cut out a piece of craft tape for a lovey, dovey mani
When you want to wear your heart on your nails, just grab a piece of craft tape. Apply a white nail colour to start with. Fold a small piece of craft tape and cut to make a heart when you unfold. Paste it on your nails and press a sponge decked with two nail shades for ombré heart design.
Smudge the colour for marble effect
It doesn’t get easier than this, girls. Apply Elle 18 Nail Pops Nail Polish in a shade of your choice and once it dries, put few drops of a lighter and a darker shade of same colour. Cover the nail with a plastic bag and press lightly to smudge the colour. Take it off and apply top coat.
