weekend nails: swirly & funky

At last!
After weeks of not doing a nail art post, i'm able to make one. Sorry girls, lately, im digging the simple one-color look or the 'cracked nail-look' so i didn't do nail arts.

I decided to do a funky but easy-to-do nail look.

Im sure for those who got nail pens, will have an easy time doing it. For those who doesn't have pens, it's ok. Just use a brush with a very thin bristles to make the swirls, it might be hard but with patience im sure you can do it!

Things needed:
  • base color of your choice
  • nail art pens
  • rhinestones
  • base coat
  • top coat
  • glitter polish (optional)

This is an easy do. Let's start:

  • Start by applying a base coat & the base color for your nails. You can opt for an opaque one if you want to.

  • Pop the cap of the pen, then test it first prior to application to make sure that nothing is blocking the opening of your pen. You can test it on a paper towel.

  • Once you already got the grip, start making swirls on your nails. Apply it randomly.

  • The more random it is, the more fun it will look. I even made some half-swirls at the sides.

  • Red all done, now it's time for the different colors. I only have 3 nail pens....

  • with white swirls added

  • with black swirls added

  • Since i still have some space left, i just filled it with random swirls.

  • You can stop if you want to. It already look pretty as it is. But since i have some rhinestones that i don't use, so i decided to put some. If you don't have rhinestones, you can just make some random dots on it.

There ya go!
Don't forget to top it with a clear/glitter polish & a top coat to make your art last longer. Tell me if you did a version of this nail so that we can see the contrast of colors.

Hope y'all have a great weekend!

Jaa ne~!
