Yes, you can achieve a lovely DIY nail art manicure at home. Follow this simple step-by-step DIY home manicure design — it’ll take a steady hand and some practice, but once mastered, you’ll want to wear these more often than not.
You will need:
- Step 1: Prep your nails with one layer of ridge filling base coat and top them with two coats of mint candy apple nail varnish.
- Step 2: Using a striping brush, delicately draw a ribbon looping across some of your nails.
Top tip from Rita: For step 2, draw a ribbon delicately across the width of each nail with a striping brush and Essie’s Blanc. Start on your thumb. You want it to look like it’s a flowing silk ribbon dancing across the nails. Creating loops isn’t always that easy. If you’re having trouble, try repositioning your hand and trying out different angles.
- Step 3: On some of your nails, draw two tear drop shapes and attach them at the point to create a bow on the ring finger. Once dried, complete the look with one coat of good to go top coat.
