This design is another monochromatic look. I was again looking to show that you don't need a ton of colors or tools to make pretty nail art. I think it worked decently!
The steps for this one are simple, and could be switched up easily based on whatever you have on hand. You don't need a lot to do this.
- base coat
- three shades of nail polish: a dark shade, a medium shade, and a light shade.
- accent pieces
- top coat
- something to make blobs with
It breaks down something like this:
- Paint your nails with your base coat.
- Paint your nails with your darkest color. For this design I used black.
- Paint one corner with your midtone color. I used silver.
- Paint splotches of your lightest color over the darkest color. I used white.
- Add a line of accent pieces along the midtone color. I used silver holographic rhombus glitter from Born Pretty.
- Add topcoat.
It really is up to you, and can be silly, bright or elegant. I worked up quite a few variations, just to give you an idea of just how versatile this type of design is!
So again, I feel like I can't say this often enough: experiment! Play with your polishes, try things out together. Try different colors together to see if they work, and if you like it, go for it! It's only nail polish, and no mistakes are permanent!
Til next time!
Rhombus glitter was provided by Born Pretty for consideration.
