More and more I see cool ladies wearing knuckle tattoos and other amazing henna inspired art. But since I can't commit to real tattoos I decided to show you how to make some nail art that compliments some faux finger tattoos.
WHAT YOU NEED:
For this manicure, I used a base pink polish since I knew that the glitter I choose has a slight pink base. The chosen base is Catrice Crush on Matt.
The glitters are by China Glaze Point Me to the Party. I choose this glitter since Summer is time for neons and glitter instantly gives you a fun base to work with.
Then I choose MoYou London Mandala 4 plate that has a few similar designs as the ones I wanted to create on my fingers.
The stamping polish I used is Essence Stamp Me! Black.
For the finger art, I used Catrice Zensibility Eyeliner Art Pen.
I got this fancy eyeliner pen from the recent Catrice Zensibility Collection. It is made in such a way that it creates different sized dots. And it is meant as a eyeliner. But I know most of you don't have such things laying around the home. So you can use any type of eyeliner or maybe just apply the eyeliner liquid to a dotting tool to make the dots. But if you want a more semi-permanent decor, use henna tattoos or any alcohol based pen. If you are a temporary tattoo fan, use those as decor, you can get them just about anywhere nowadays. Especially the metallic kind that look amazing on anyone.
Step 1: Apply base nail polish. Make sure it matches the glitter that comes next if it has a sheer jelly base like mine.
Step 2: Apply glitter polish. Use as many coats as you like.
Step 3: Apply nail stamps. They are optional since you can use any other nail art technique you feel comfortable with.
Step 4: Clean up time!
Step 5: Create finger art. I made 3 dots on each finger that correspond with the mandala pattern on the nails. I had to make a couple of layers of it due to the formula of the eyeliner tool.
Here is the finished result. I admit I fell in love with it. They seem so happy and full of positive vibes. Perfect for any summer festival.
I really want to know what you think about this look! I would love to see if any of you wear such nail art.
