Design 1: Color Splash
For your first design, use a makeup sponge to randomly dab 3 polishes on each nail.
Tip: Apply base coat first, then paint all your nails with white polish as this will be your base color.
Design 2: Instagram Layout
For Instagram nail design, start by concentrating the blue polish on the upper left corner of your nail. Then apply yellow polish on the bottom left corner of your nail. Then, cover the rest of the nail with pink polish. Continue to apply the three colors (blue, yellow, pink) in thin layers until opaque.
a. Orange Polish
Once opaque, start applying the orange polish over the yellow and pink colors. Apply the purple polish over the blue and pink colors to make a gradient effect. Don’t forget to clean up around the nail if necessary.
Tip: Fill in the white areas with the appropriate color.
b. Top Coat
Apply top coat over your design to make the surface smooth and easier to paint over.
c. Instagram Logo
Once that’s dry, start painting the Instagram logo on your nail.
Design 3: Two Hearts
For your third and last design, paint two hearts with a white nail polish on your thumbnail.
And you’re all done!
Apply top coat to seal in your designs, and you’re all set and done!
