Easy Nail Art at Home

Step 1
As usual the first step is to always protect your natural nail with a transparent base coat. It not only protects the nail, but also ensures smooth application. Moreover, we will be using glitter nail paints in this post. The base coat will be act as a savior when you remove the stubborn glitter nail paint, with a nail paint remover.

Step 4
Taking the same nail paint in step 2, make small random dots all over the gold painted nails. Like shown in the picture. Let it dry well.

Step 5
Now grab your toothpick and the black nail paint. Dip the toothpick in the black polish and mark borders or to make it simpler, create brackets on the borders of those red dots. This will give a leopard print look. Not only will those gold nails become glamorous with the red and black detail, you are ready to sizzle in the party with that eye catching deign.

Step 6
This is a very crucial step. Let the design and detailing dry completely for at least 15 minutes. And then apply the top coat. Most of the times, the black borders smear when top coat is applied. To avoid this mess, be a little patient with the top coat.

Quick Tips

  • You can create this look with any colors of your choice, remember the border or brackets should be black to get that oomph factor.
  • When you create the brackets, create them the way you want to. Be random. That’s the beauty of this design.
  • Remember to keep the highlighting shade (the dots) bright, to show well.
  • The base colors on the three fingers should be light enough to make the bright dots pop up.
