NAIL ART | Pop Pink with Blue-Green Stripes

Starting my first post here at Fayhalicious that's a Nail Art tutorial and since I regard myself as a mere beginner, I am doing a very simple Stripes post using three bright colors.

What you'll need:


  • Nail Polish* in:
  1. Fuschia Pink
  2. Teal Green
  3. Bright Blue
  • Base and Top Coat
  • Nail Art Brush (thin tip)
 Tutorial:


  • Begin with applying a base coat. 
  • Apply a coat of fuschia pink nail polish. Let dry.


    • Line the nail tip with teal green color. Let dry.
    • On top of the green, apply a line of bright blue nail polish using a nail brush (it's difficult to draw the line using the polish's own brush - tried & failed!). Let dry.
    • Apply a top coat for the design to look even and smooth (you can see it looks messy otherwise) and ta-da! you're done. 

    This is my twisted take on a modern French manicure. I wanted the two colors (green,blue) to be more thinner but they ended up thicker than a normal french tip and since the overall look didn't look bad, I decided to keep them as they were. You might want to make them thinner for it to look like a proper French mani with two colors on the tips instead of one. 

    *I have used Maybelline (India) Color Show nail polish in Fiesty Fuschia, Tenacious Teal & Shocking Seas!
