Wild ThangStep 1: Apply a base coat of Nails Inc. Magnetic Nail Polish, and then a second (thicker coat) of polish. Then hover your finger, polish side down, over the magnet on the cap of the polish and wait 10-15 seconds. The magnetic strip will create dramatic “waves” and designs on your nails. Step 2: Apply a layer of crackle like Sally Hansen's Crackle Overcoat in Fractured Foil in a shade similar to the base nail polish color. Step 3: When the polish is dry, use a nail polish containing glitter, such as Wet 'n' Wild Fast Dry Nail Color Party of Five Glitters (two coats are best) to really punch up the effect. In a matter of seconds, your nails will look as though you dipped them in crushed jewelry.
Step 1: After applying a base coat, start with a nail polish color light enough to show off your nail artwork. L'Oreal Colour Riche Nail Lacquer in Butterfly Kisses makes a great canvas. Two coats ensure a uniform, non-streaky finishfor artistic expression. Step 2: Before you apply a clear top coat, determine your nail art design and reach for a good nail art pen like Sally Hansen's which are an easy alternative to using acrylic paints with brushes. Step 3: Once your nail designs are completely dry, seal the look with a clear top coat.
Step 1: To get this look, choose contrasting shades that make your nail art stand out. I used L'Oreal Nail Lacquer in Drama Queen as my base color. Alisha Botero, National Training Director, Nail Services for Red Door Spas advises that you layer your favorite nail polish for a great base, but ensure the polish is completely dry before starting your work. “Acrylic paints are great to work with since they wash off with water, this is great for mess ups since the polish stays on unscathed.” Step 2: Stencil on some fun designs to liven up the manicure. One easy to use kit is Kiss Nail Artist Paint & Stencil Kit that comes with sticker sheets and three nail art colors. Simply peel, press, paint and peel off the design of your choice. Step 3: Seal with a clear top coat.
