Tutorial: Vintage pattern nail art

Beauty, Nails

Hehe I’ve just done another nail design ♡ I was inspired by some vintage pattern fabrics I found online ♡♡♡ Here’s how I did it (first tutorial ever I think?):

First: Coat your nails with a vintage-ish colour (I used Barry M’s Mint green)

Next, use a big dotting tool (or the tip of a bobby pin) and make 3 big white dots.

This is the 1st step to make the laces strip.

While the white varnish hasn’t dried, use a small dotting tool (or a toothpick) and create punched-out hole on the edge of the “lace”.

Now, use a colour you like to draw the flowers using a small tip brush. I used Barry M’s Flamingo Pink.

Second design: super simple, use a dotting tool (any size you like) and just dot away.

Third design: another lace.

Use the tip of the varnish brush and draw this:

Next use a brush and draw the lace’s edge.

Now use a toothpick and create lace patterns anyway you like.

Fourth design: use a darker green to draw little leaves on your nail using just the tip of the brush. I used Barry M’s Spring Green.

Drawing the flowers: use the same colour of the flowers you used on the thumb, and white polish. Don’t mix them together, use a big dotting tool (or bobby pin’s tip) and dip between the 2 colours.

Now just dot away right on the leaves and there you have your flowers.

Last design: use the varnish brush’s tip and make a big dot in the middle of your nail.
Photobucket

Use the same colour with the flowers on the other fingers and a small dotting tool to dot around the white big dot.
Photobucket

Use the same colour to make the flower (5 dots make a flower). Then press the tip of the dotting tool to create holes on the petals:

Last step: create white dots all over your nail.

DONE!

There, vintage nail art!
