I love discovering new nail art techniques and designs and last week I discovered this amazing Quatrefoil Nail Art design by Christabell Nails. Last night I decided to give it a go.
var _gaq = _gaq || ;
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script'); s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
The design called for five things:
Two nail polish colors - I used American Apparel The Valley and Sinful Colors Snow Me White
Two different sized dotting tools (I used a dual ended one)
A striping brush
I won't get too far into the details of the technique because I am still learning myself. Head on over to Christabell Nails for the full tutorial. I opted for an accent nail instead of the full design because I wanted to ease my way into it. I stared by painting all of my nails with two coats of The Valley and painted my ring finger with Snow Me White. Once dry I followed the technique and used both colors to create the Quatrefoil design on my accent nail.
I definitely want to try this again next time with a full design on all the nails. What I love about this it is that the color combo choices are endless. What do you all think? I always get so nervous when I follow tutorials. How did I do my first time out?
