Take out a clean plastic wrap, scrunch it and paint another color into the scrunched portion of the plastic. When your nails are completely dry, simply stamp the plastic into your nails. When you’re done, clean the excess polish with nail polish remover and add a clear varnish.

You can use toothpicks for this but it’ll be a bit smaller Flesh-toned polish is optional. First, make sure your nails are clean and evenly-trimmed. To do fresh manicure easily, place a piece of tape to the tips and apply a coat or two. Once they’ve dried, remove the scotch tape and carefully apply the flesh-toned manicure on the unpainted portion of the nails. After drying, just add polka dots with the use of a dotting tool or toothpick. Then finish it off with a clear nail varnish.

Apply your base color then let it dry a bit after adding the lace. To keep the fabric in place, add a clear coat and let it dry. Photo from The Polished Mommy Before starting, add a clear varnish into your nails because it acts as a barrier between the acetone and the white polish. This will prevent your nails from having bald spots. When you’re going to paint, paint in a dabbing motion to get more of that “water splotchy look”. Photo from Lacquet of the Future For this splatter tutorial, start by painting your nails a light-colored polish. If you have an old slanted makeup brush or a small paintbrush, use it and dip it into a bright polish. Dip the brush into acetone to thin it out then just splatter it across your nails. Make it as messy as possible. Go on and splatter many colorful polishes as you like so it wouldn’t look boring. Also, use bright ones. Just clean off the excess afterwards and don’t forget the clear top coat. Photo from Modern Fashion Try out this fading effect polish – you’re going to need a foundation sponge and two nail polishes. Apply base coat on your nails then apply the second color into the slightly wet sponge. Paint it at the tip until the middle, it should look like a monochromatic color like the picture above. So the darkest color is the exact color of your second polish, then a lighter shade of it then the white shade which is your base color. Apply top coat for a polished look.

Apply a light color as your base and whichever color you want for your flower. The center of your flower should be in a different color, so dot it wherever you want your flower to be. Wipe the polish from the dotting tool and just dot five around the center of your flower.
