Easy DIY Nail Art Steps

ettusais Vacance Nail - Ice Cream Paradise 2009




15 delicious ice-cream shades available - Click here to View Shades
They come in cute mini-sized bottles. Great for the summer holidays because they're so compact you can bring all your favourite shades along with you. And at only $4 each.. you can experiment with MORE colours.

The colours are bright, vibrant and quick drying. Great for nail art!


Here are 3 of my fool-proof easy designs for beginners:

I shall call this design -The Stardust
Glitter is so easy to use! For the base- I used one coat of Frozen Yoghurt (no.3). Then I painted a light coat of glitter Argent(no.15) over it. After about a minute, I used Argent again but this time I only painted on the outer right corner of the nail. This gives a gradation effect.

And this design is - Candy JazzI used one coat of Frozen Yoghurt (no.3) for the base. Then I painted top-left corner and bottom right corner of the nail with Strawberry Milk (no.4), leaving a strip of the Frozen Yoghurt showing. And on that middle stripe, I jazzed it up with a diagonal stroke of Argent(no.15).

The easiest but most fun- More Sprinkles PleaseFrozen Yoghurt as the base, and then colours of your choice as sprinkles! All you need to do is dot them on (i use the back of a paintbrush, but anything with a point on it will do). I used Blue hawaii (9), wild cherry (11) and Rich Banana (8).
