My name is Serena and I am a freshman in high school who is enthusiastic about schoolwork, reading, debate, and, (in my free time), nail art. I will be blogging about almost anything – dealing with stress from school, interesting books to check out, reviews on movies, fashion trends, and nail art. Today, I will just give you guys a really quick tip to help with painting complicated/small nail art designs on your nails.
If you find that drawing small designs, like hearts or butterflies, is difficult to do (especially on both hands), then a great idea is to paint the designs onto a clean plastic Ziploc bag. All you need is your favorite nail color, a nail brush (which you can purchase at places like Sally Beauty Supply – one of my favorite brush sets are here – http://www.sallybeauty.com/Nail-Brush-Set/SBS-156650,default,pd.html), a toothpick, a Ziploc bag, and tweezers (optional).
First, flatten your Ziploc bag and make sure that there is no dust or water (any outside materials) on it. If you want, you can cut the sides off to make it one clear layer of plastic (instead of the two layers of it). Then, dot the toothpick in the brush of your nail polish and use the toothpick to draw a design (for example, a heart) on a clear space of the Ziploc. You can use the nail art brushes to do this as well. Draw as many of these as you wish. I have an actual nail art design tutorial coming soon too!
Whenever you get a chance, this is a fun and easy way to brighten up your look with new nails! I hope this tutorial sparked some creative designs to brighten your nails with! 🙂
