Corset Nail Design

11 Oct

Inspired by the sexy look of a corset, we’ve created a look that is a must-have if you want to spice up your nail polish. It’s perfect for nights out on the town or even the perfect accent to your Halloween costume if you’re going the seductive route this year. It’s simple, easy, and can be done in any color to match your outfit. Follow these easy steps below to achieve this look.

Step One: Pick a light color as your base polish. We chose Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength Champagne Toast.

Step Two: After your base color completely dries, cut up little strips of scotch tape and stick them vertically on each side of the nail, creating a line down the center where you can paint a stripe. Pick a darker color polish and paint a stripe down the center of your nail. We used Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength Black Diamond.

Step Three: After your stripe has dried, use a Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen (We used Neon Pink) to draw small bows at the base of your stripe. If you’re unsure how to do so, draw infinity symbols ∞ near the bottom of your stripe. Next, draw two lines from the center of your infinity symbols which curve slightly in opposite directions.  Add a small nail faux diamond to the center for a glittering accent.

Step Four: Using the same pen, draw a vertical Xs from the bow to the tip of your nail in your stripe. The effect will look like a corset ribbon. Also, use another nail art pen and draw dots on the ends of the Xs to make it appear like they are ties. Finish the look with a top coat and you’re good to go.
