Hey everyone. Hope your day is going great. Do you wonder if there are cool ways to do your nails? Well, yeah, I have one easy and different way to get pretty nails at home. I like to try various techniques to do nail art. I did this brown gradient nails using eyeshadow pigments. I loved the effect it showed off. You can notice how nicely the eyeshadow pigments created transition for this Nail Design.
Items and Tools I Used
- Base Coat
- Brown Acrylic Paint
- Burgundy Eyeshadow Pigments
- Shimmery Copper Nail Polish
- Gold Glitter Nail Polish
- Foil Glue
- Flat Nail Art Brush
- A fluffy brush to apply the pigments
- Top Coat
How I did the Nail Design
Start by applying base coat nail polish on your nails and let it dry. Before putting any product on the nails, you must layer it with base coat polish. Base Coat protects the natural nails from harmful chemicals and helps your manicure to stay longer.
Paint your nails with the Shimmery Copper Nail Polish. I have two coats on my nails. Once the nails are dry, Make french manicure using the Brown Acrylic Paint and Flat Brush. I used brown acrylic paint to do the nail tips. As I said, I like to experiment! You can totally use a brown polish. Make sure the paint/polish is fully dry before moving forward with the nail design. If you plan to use acrylic paint, then cover the tip with a layer of top coat polish for further decoration and let it dry.
But if you want to do french manicure without tip guide, I feel acrylic paint has advantages over nail polish. If something goes wrong or you don’t get the perfect shape, you can simply wash it with water and retry. The flat brush does a nice job in getting a clean manicure line.
Apply a thin coat of foil glue on the manicure line. The foil glue I used, dries clear in couple of minutes. Pick small amount of eyeshadow pigment on a fluffy brush and gently tap it over the glued area. Apply a layer of top coat over the pigments to blend it well with the colors. Once it is dry, you will see the perfect transition. Add some gold glitter polish and seal the whole design with Top Coat.
