DIY Nail Art


Nail art as a concept is very popular and people love to enhance their nails with creative designs and using different art forms. Many of us admire Nail art but are scared to do it on our own nails because we think it is a complex art. Well creating a nail art design is simpler than you thought but it needs patience and practice. So here is a list of simple yet beautiful nail arts you can give a try.


Chevron Tip Nail Art


Things Required : Two nail polishes (I am using blue and black here) of contrasting colours, a white nail polish, a base coat, a top coat and a toothpick

  • First apply the base coat
  • Once the base coat dries completely, apply a coat of bluepolish. (or any other colour of your choice) Repeat this the second time too.
  • In order to create a chevron tip, take black polish and stoke it in diagonal position from the left side of the nail. Fill the remaining part of the nail below the diagonal and repeat the same stroke from the right side of the nail.

  • When the nail polish dries,use a toothpick to place some big white dots on tips.
  • To give a finishing touch, dip a toothpick in blue polish and draw a dot inside each white dot on all fingers.
