Women, teenagers, and girls are always looking for cute nail ideas. Are you bored with painting your nails the same color every week? Perhaps you are tired of your nails being painted all one color, for example, red, and you want to try a new technique. Here is a cute nail idea for all ages.
What you need:
Light green nail polish
White nail polish
Black nail art pen
Synthetic gems or diamonds
Step 1: Wash and dry your hands and fingernails. It is extremely important to start with clean hands and fingernails.
Step 2: Use your black nail art pen and draw a line on your nails that creates a very loose upside down “w.” Allow to dry completely before moving onto the next step to avoid the nail polish colors from mixing.
Step 3: Paint the lower portion of the upside down “w” with the light-green nail polish making sure to avoid getting any nail polish on the black line. Allow to dry and add another coat if necessary.
Step 4: Paint the upper portion of the upside down “w” bright white, again making sure to avoid touching the black line. Allow to dry and apply another coat of white nail polish. Before moving on to Step 5 you need to verify that all coats (green, black and white) of nail polish are completely dry and do not smudge to the touch.
Step 5: Using your black nail art pen, draw a bow where the “w” comes together in the middle. Allow to dry.
Step 6: Apply another coat of the black nail art pen to all black areas of the fingernail. Again, you need to allow this coat to dry. Apply another coat of black over the first coat makes the black stand out more and increases the dramatic appearance of this cute nail idea.
Step 7: Apply a small amount of nail glue on the back of a synthetic gem or diamond and carefully place the gem or diamond where the bow meets the “w.” Hold in place until secure, this typically only takes a few seconds.
Step 8: Repeat for all nails.
Although this cute nail idea shows a green, white, and black design feel free to experiment with any color combination you want or like. Red, black and white would be a dramatic but cute idea as well.
