Tools needed: No nail art tools required. Just a Q tip and some nail polish remover for easy clean up.
I was about to paint my nails, knowing that whatever I’d paint, I wanted it to be black and white. It’s strange to me that with all the nail art I’ve done throughout the years, I had never done one with this classic combination of colors. They are practically a duo and are found in clothing for Spring. This is the type of manicure that will match any outfit especially with its contrast of the two most popular colors. Let’s get started!
Here are my Paint Splatter nails in a step-by-step tutorial:
1. Start with a base coat to protect your natural nail bed.
2. Paint the entire nail with your base color until it is opaque.
4. With the same skinnier side of the brush, starting laying the brush (with hardly any polish on it) down from the center outward, from top to bottom, with light brushstrokes, as if you are pulling color from that stripe. Do it to both sides.
With this feathering effect, you should get something that looks like this, on both the thumb and ring finger for accent nails.
5. Repeat Step 4 for the remaining nails but use the white polish to drag the color onto the middle of the nail, pulling the color from both sides to the center.
6. Dip the ends of your Q tip into nail polish remover to clean up the mess you may have made around your nails/cuticle area.
Once excess polish is removed from around your nails, it should look like this.
7. Once the manicure is done, seal the nail art design with a quick drying top coat. This will make the nail look shiny and the design last longer.
I hope you enjoyed this nail tutorial that hardly needs the use of tools to achieve such a unique look. Just keep in mind that you can use literally any two colors, and it will look great.
I’d love to see your manicure. If you end up trying this nail look out, show/tag me on Instagram using the hashtag #iidoydoyii
