I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here yet, but I’m a total nail art hobbyist, and I’ve learned by watching others and doing research on my own. Nail art can seem a little scary at first, but I’m a walking example that practice is all you need to make beautiful art on your own fingers. I’ve been obsessively painting my nails for a good while now, so I’ve rounded up 11 of my top nail art essentials for you today. Some of them you can substitute with household objects – seriously, I used to use the back of an earring for art when I didn’t have toothpicks (read: poor/lazy college student).
If you’re interested in dipping your toes into nail art, I would suggest starting with using some sort of dotting tool for your designs. You can create so many looks with just this type of tool! And of course, a base coat and fast drying top coat. The top coat is a MUST. This helps seal and protect your design, and it makes your nails look amazing. Not lying, sometimes I smudge a nail, apply another coat of fast dry top coat, and you can’t even tell at all. It’s a holy grail for any manicure in my opinion.
See the video below for my Top 11 Nail Art (and manicure!) Essentials. I hope this video is useful and helps you get started with nail art 🙂
