Nail Art for Beginners- Guest Post 6

Guest Post series is getting some amazing response and I am thankful to all the
new visitors to my blog. I hope you continue to enjoy the posts and keep
showering us with your love.

is Holi, the most favourite festival of Mumbaikars, so let’s add more colour to
it by welcoming the So-Saree queen, Aditi. We worked in the same organization,
but we hardly got time to interact much. We both had one thing in common, our
love for ‘Sarees’. One more thing that I admired about Aditi was the way she
styled her nails, with simple and colourful nail-art. So when I approached her
for a guest post, she immediately agreed to write about nail-art.

Art for Beginners.

congratulations to my friend Gayatri on completing 4 years of blogging.
I would have really liked to tell you guys, how much I respect and admire
Gayatri, but let me just leave that for another post.
Today I would
like to write about a topic that is an inseparable part of my life…Nail Art.
Nail Art is something I have been doing since my early college days. Though it
looks tedious and complicated, it is not that tough.
Today I am going
to share some easy nail art tricks that might help you to get started.
Multi Coloured Nails

coloured nails. :
This is how I started. Just give your nails a peppy look, by
using two or more shades on different nails

Add some Glitter
Add some shine
Choose a favourite color and colour all your nails except one/two with that colour.
On that one nail/s that you left empty, use glitter nail polish.
Some more glitter
Glitter Tips:
Colour your nails with your fav colour and after they dry, colour the tips of
your already coloured nails with some glitter nail polish.
Polka Dots…

Its lovely, isn’t it?
Polka dots: This
is where your real nail art starts. I kind of have a feeling that every nail
art enthusiast starts with the polka dots nail art. You don’t need fancy
tools for this. A match stick or the blunt side of a boppy pin should be good
for beginners. Dip the match stick or boppy pin in your favourite nail paint
and make dots on your coloured nails. Let them dry and finish off with a top
coat for longer lasting nail colour.
I love this one,so simple and pretty!

Adding a spark to the Red!
Bindi nail art:
This is again the most simple nail art I did when in college. All you need is bindis. Colour your nails with your fav nail paint and after it
dries up, stick your fav bindis on your nails and finish with a top coat.
That’s cool!
Scotch tape: This
technique needs a little bit of patience. Colour your nails preferably with a
lighter colour. Then cut small strips of scotch tape and put them on your dried
coloured nails in a position that leaves yourr nail tips open. Now colour the
top portion of your nails using the scotch tape as a guide. It is absolutely okay,
if your nail colour goes on your tape as well.

After waiting for
a minute, slowly pull off the scotch tape. You have perfectly manicured nails.
This is the same technique that is used for French manicure.
That’s it for
today. Hope you guys enjoyed this post, as much as I did drafting it.
