As I said in a earlier post my sister, Becky, is really talented in nail art! She has agreed to do some nail tutorials to go up on my blog! YAY.
Hi, I am Becky, Rachels older sister. She has asked me (well, told me) to do a blog post showing you how to do some of my nail art.
The first tutorial I have decided to do is, sticking with a summer theme, strawberry nails. So here goes!
- Barry M Nail Paint (Shades Spring Green 290 and Matt White 66),
- Avon Nailwear Pro+ (Shade Red Bombshell)
- A dotting tool (I got this one from Ebay but you can just used a cocktail stick)
(There is a list of the brands I used but any brand that is close to those shades will work fine!)
Paint all of your nails white, accept the nails next to your baby fingers which need to be painted red, with 2 coats.
On your middle finger and thumb, paint a large red half circle on 1 corner of each nail using the brush from your nail varnish.
Using your dotting tool, put small white dots horizontally on the end of each of the red nails (I done 2 rows of 3 on each) and small red dots on the remaining white nails in a diagonal line across half of each nail and small white dots inside the big red dots.
Using your dotting tool, put three green strips on top of each big red dot for the stalks. Et voila!
If you like you can put a top coat on of your choice. The design may last longer on false nails. Mine are all real and lasted around 2 weeks without a top coat.
Hope you enjoyed!
Let Rachel know if you have any other requests and I’ll see what I can do! xxx
