POW ! Comic Strip Nail Art Tutorial

So here's my tutorial for Comic Strip inspired nail art, a popular design from the infamous WahNails, really quite easy to do with the right tools & patience. You ll need 5 bright colours for this look, a black & a white nail art pen & a clear top coat.

* Paint your nails each with a different colour polish.

* Once dry, with your white nail art pen draw a white semi circle in one top corner of the nail, then give the edges a zig zag design.
* Draw small white dots on the rest of nail.

* Outline the white zig zag pattern with your black nail art pen.
* Then go on to write your comic themed words in the white area.
* Finish with a clear top coat after the pen has dried & then your done :)
The colours i used were Ciate Mistress 039, Ciate Big Yellow Txi 074, Ciate Headliner 066, Models Own Candy Pink Pro 033 & Ciate Mojito 019.

Graffiti Nail Art Tutorial

A really quick & easy design for the very popular "graffiti" look. For this look I used Grey Cream by La Femme, Nail Tip White by 2True a black nail art pen & a clear top coat by La Femme. The great thing about this look is that it looks great whatever colours you use.

*Start by painting your nails with your chosen colour, leaving one blank for your accent nail.
*Paint your accent nail with your chosen colour.
*Leave nails to dry for a few minutes.
*Once dry get your nail art pen & very lightly go on with your "graffiti" basically just write as small as you can your chosen words.
*Try & write it S if one big sentence with no gaps so it looks less like one word being repeated.
*leave the writing to dry for about a minute then cover with your top coat.

Good Luck ;)
