In this video I’m going to show you five easy nail art designs without tools. Let’s dive right in. Hey guys it’s Clarice, welcome back to my channel. And you know what to do, start out with a base coat and this is my UNT peel-off base coat, I really like this one.
By the way, if you’re interested in what I do to take care of my nails, you can click on the video in the upper right hand corner of your screen. But. moving on to the first design, we will need a metallic silver polish.
If you don’t have something exactly like this, that’s okay you can just use some other silver or glitter polish you have, that can work. So just paint the whole nail. Alrighty, so when that has dried, grab a copper or an orange or even brown glittery polish it do,esn’t even have to be glittery but I think it’s more interesting when it’s glittery.
And you’re going to make a little clump of polish at the end of the brush, like that. And then you’re going to use that to make dots of the polish all over the nail. And you don’t have to wait for this to dry to go on to the next step.
So just grab a black polish and then as you can see, what I’m doing here is I’m making the brush very thin by brushing both sides of it against the edge of the bottle, and then you’re basically trying to make yourself a little striper brush.
So this is a little bit tricky and don’t worry if it’s messy, mine got a little bit messy there that’s alright. So I’m just using the thin brush now to just outline a little bit and you can see that this is a leopard spot pattern.
It’s a little bit different here, but yes you can do this design without any tools. Although I think a toothpick might be of a help. Already, for the next design grab a black polish. Here I’m using in LA colors black.
And then grab a white polish, and the more opaque it is the better, but if it’s not totally opaque in one coat, that’s fine. Okay so what I’m doing here is you might need to turn your finger around to get the right angle, I’m basically making like a crescent shape with the white so I’m covering up a lot of the black and I’m going to fill in all that area and then leave just that rounded sliver of black at the cuticle and at that one side and I’m just going on straightening up that line.
Oh there’s my hair coming in the way okay, and there we go! That’s so easy. For the next design, also grab a black polish and you are going to make two kind of scalloped lines like this above the free edge and then just fill in all of that tip.
And you might not see bu,t I put a little bit of latex on the sides of my skin to protect it from the black polish which is kind of staining, and that is the finished design I think this is a very, it has like a formal look to it.
I really like that black, very simple and and a little bit minimalistic you know. For any next design grab two purples, or you could really use any color combination but in total you will need a light, a dark, and then a glittery shade of that color.
So what I’m doing here is, you don’t have to wait for each side to dry but I’m just painting half the nail light and then half the nail dark, like that, diagonally. And then when that dries grab a glittery purple or whatever color for the color scheme you are using, and just kind of like dry brushing, just dab some in between that line so you see the line doesn’t have to be perfect because you’re just going to cover it up.
And if you keep going, it kind of gives it this gradient effect, almost, sort of, maybe, okay. And for this one, whip out your red polish and paint be whole nail red, easy peasy. Then grab an orange, I don’t use orange very much do you? Anyways I’m dry brushing this down the center of the nail.
And I did another dry brushing design like this, in this video right here, but I use pinks and purples in that one, so very versatile technique. You can leave it like that or you can take it a step further and grab your yellow polish and then dry brush some on, even thinner line down the middle and it gives this kind of vertical gradient idea of fading from red to orange to yellow.
I think this one is really cool. Well that was fast! I hope you enjoyed these designs, I do have a whole other video on no tool nail art designs in the upper right corner of your screen too, if you’d like to see more ideas.
