Graffiti Nail Design

1 Sep

Here at ScentsaBeauty we love manicures and the recent surge in cool nail designs has us trying lots of new looks.  This graffiti style design is one of our new favorites. You can use any colors you like to create the look as long as you finish it with black shatter polish, we used OPIs.  We chose a base of pastels in pink, purple, and white.

1)      Start with clean nails using a little nail polish remover to prep the surface. Paint a thin layer of clear base coat to start. We used Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails.

2)      Once your base coat has dried, paint your first layer of color diagonally across each nail. Be sure there isn’t too much polish on the brush, and don’t worry if the line isn’t precise, the shattered polish will cover it. We used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Lacey Lilac.

3)       Now paint the second layer of color. Try switching it up on your nail to vary the design. We used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On.

4)      Finish nails with the third color, filling in any colorless spots on your nails. We used Revlon Nail Enamel in Pink Chiffon.

5)      Allow nails to dry completely before applying Shatter nail polish. Make three quick strokes vertically across nails using a thick layer of Shatter polish.

6)      Allow the shatter polish to dry completely and finish with a clear topcoat.

Voila!  A funky graphic manicure you can do yourself!  Leave us a comment and let us know what you think.
