Member Spotlight: Nail Art Inspiration

Hi everyone,

Last month, I posted my DIY Nail Hearts tutorial and have been in a nail art mood ever since. I asked all of you to share your own creations in the Nail Forum and you guys posted some amazing manicures! Here are few that are definitely worth checking out:


Filmstrip Nails by Stacey Castanha 

Here’s how you can recreate these sweet filmstrip nails with hearts:

  1. Apply base coat and then white nail polish.
  2. Using the color of your choice and a tiny brush called a striper (an old eyeliner brush will work too), draw two parallel lines. Connect them with two vertical lines.
  3. Using a toothpick, draw tiny white dots across the horizontal lines. And voilà, you’ve got your filmstrips!
  4. Using a new toothpick and the color of your choice, dot on the hearts (or whatever shape or accent you prefer).
  5. Finish with your favorite top coat.



Glitter Gradient Nails by Its Happy Days 

This manicure reminded me of spring :) And it’s basically mistake-proof because the glitter polish will cover any imperfections. Get the look in three easy steps:

  1. Apply a base coat.
  2. Use a small sponge to apply two colors of polish (keep reading for further instruction on this step!). Then apply a clear top coat to blend the colors together.
  3. Add a sheer coat of glitter on top to add some sparkle and conceal any less-than-perfect polish applications.
