Here is a fun nail art project for you to try for the weekend. It was a pretty simple task using my beloved Sally Hansen nail art pens. I thought drawing the designs with my left hand would be impossible, but with slow strokes it was a breeze!
Nail polish: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in 340 Mint Sorbet, 150 Sun Kissed, and 420 Pacific Blue; Revlon Nail Enamel in 762 Plum Attraction and 912 Posh Pink; Sally Hansen Double Duty Top Coat
Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens in White, Bright Blue, Light Pink, and Black
Nail art pens were purchased individually at Walgreens and Ulta.
1. Apply (2) coats of polish onto nails – a different color for each finger. Pick random colors that are somewhat different from each other. When you first paint the polish on, it will look weird, but trust me, it will look cute once you are all done. I found it looks better if you do not match your hands (paint your two thumbs different colors, etc.- see the above pic, the middle box is my left hand, the right box is my right hand). Let it dry completely.
2. Using the nail pens, draw tribal designs on top of DRY polish. If you think it will help, practice drawing the designs on paper first. If the nail pen is brand new, push the tip of the pen down onto a piece of scrap paper to bring the polish to the tip before trying to draw on the nail. Nail pens are only for drawing over dry nail polish, not on bare nails. Let pen art dry completely.
3. Apply top coat to seal the design. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. Without the top coat, the pen art will not adhere to the nail. Let top coat dry and enjoy the compliments!
