Birthday Nail

I started with the base coat on my nails that prevent yellow stain on my nail pallets. Leave it for 5 minutes so that base coat gets dry meanwhile you can jot down your nail polishes.

Now it’s time to give a beautiful colorful base for nail art design, let’s start with Matte Black and peach color nail polish for a base.

I applied Matte Black color nail paint on my nails except on my middle finger. For middle fingernail, I choose some light color to make nail art design more engaging.

2. Horizontal Stripes

To make Birthday Nails art more elegance, here I have drawn detailed horizontal stripes of Blue color with the help of liner Brush only on the middle fingernail.

Don’t get panic!

I know for a beginner its difficult to draw such straight lines. Here I would love to tell that you can use scotch tape to get such straight blue lines. Let me tell you guys how?

Cut the tape into multiple pieces and tapped it one by one on your nail, now apply blue nail paint over your middle fingernail. With the help of Tweezer remove tape one by one, you will see the same stripes as I drawn with the liner brush.   

3. Design “K” Alphabet
