The nail art trend has been around for awhile now, but we still can’t get enough of painting cute little symbols on our paws from time to time!
A few weeks ago Paige and I got together at Studio B with Johanna Martin, a friend of the shop, local artist, and nail art extraordinaire. We went over some ideas, grabbed a handful of Trust Fund Beauty polishes from the shop, and started penning sketches onto scrap paper. Together we came up with a simple, super cute accent nail tutorial that almost anyone can accomplish with a roll of washi tape, nail polish, and a little bit of patience!
1 // Cut 3 peices of washi tape approx 1-2″ inch off the roll.
2 // Cut those pieces in half vertically (length-wise) – you need 5 total
3 // Paint your nail a solid colour
4 // Once the nail is very dry, create a diamond shape with washi tape (<>)
5 // Take the 5th piece of tape and place it level across the top of your nail (as if it were a french manicure?) Make sure the tape is stuck down well and paint the space with desired ‘diamond’ colour. We went with Trust Fund Beauty’s “Credit Card Workout”, a perfect glittery silver that you can find at the shop!
6 // Wait as long as you possibly can to ensure the polish has dried, then slowly and carefully peel back the tape. If you feel up to the task, add a few lines or glitter details with a tiny nail brush before top coating your nail to protect the design.
Shine on, you sparkling diamond you!
