Nail Art with Fan Brush : Step by Step Tutorial

Colorful Nailart Tutorial
Nailart to match all Outfits

I have been little busy with life and lazy to dress up them nails. I have worked my way every week either with the GRAFFITTI nail paints or the glitter ones. But one fine day just before bedtime I made up my mind to try out this canvas design in the most easiest and unique way possible. I took use of an old fan brush and created magic on the nails. Lets begin to show you how.

Nail Art with Fan Brush

Step 1

Paint your nails with base coat like HERE. This ensures even application of nail colors and protects natural nail color.

Step 2

Paint your nails with the desired base color. I like to put either very dark or very light colored base. Here you can see me using pale yellow and pink white shade. Let them dry well. You can go totally opposite and paint them dark say black or navy blue.

Step 3

Now take the fan brush and wipe of any makeup residue on it, as in clean it well. But do not wet it. Now its times to create the colorful canvas. We need to work with one color at a time. Take the colored nail paints (pink,orange,red,green). With the help of the nail polish applicator apply it on the tip of fan brush (check image for reference). Quickly brush it through the base color horizontally.

Step 4

Now you can either wait for the first fan color to dry out or immediately apply the next color with the fan brush as in step 3. Like this, apply as many shades you want. The gradient created with the colors comes out as a canvas of oil paints.

Step 5

Apply a top coat, matte or glossy is your choice.

This design can be played with different colors and textures. After trying the matte (yellow base), I tried the glossy base (white), Went on a bit over board and tried the black base (glitter).

Quick Tip : Dip the fan brush inside the remover bottle by squishing it , rub a little and wipe clean with a cloth. You can also clean it with cotton soaked in nail polish remover.

This nail art will perfect with dry and old nail pants which you want to throw away.

Hope you enjoyed the nail art as much as I did. Have any questions? Pour them in the comments below.
