Nail Art Ideas – Using Acrylic Paints to Create Stars


Hi, I’m Kirsty Meakin from Naio Nails in this video I’m going to show you how to create a funky design, using a white nail black paint and we’re gonna create some gorgeous little stars so on this nail, I’ve already sculpted a nail in Mega White in a gorgeous ballerina shape and what we’re going to do now is just use black paint a really simple design we’re going to use the black acrylic polycolor paint with a detailing brush, go right round the outside here and the round the other side finish it off about half way down the nail and I’ve seen lots of star prints at the minute within fashion, so we’re going to do some stars it’s all going to be black and white, don’t forget, keep your paint nice and fluid, so it flows nice on the nail we’re going to do a line coming straight down from that cuticle and then we’re going to do a star in the bottom, so we’re doing an upside down sort of chevron V shape, first of all and across and we’re going to join these up so just sort of outline a rough star at first then you can start to fill this in then we’re going to do the same again here, but we’re going to do a smaller star so now we’ve done the design, we’ve done that free hand art what we need to do is make sure that the paint is nice and dry so you’ll notice that your paint will go matte when it’s dry, then what I’m going to do now is seal all of the nail, make sure that you go right up over the paint work that you’ve done if you don’t it’s just going to wear away, it needs to be sealed in really important, especially because of how tight and close it goes to the cuticle you’ve got to be mindful and watch that we don’t flood the cuticle with Mega Gloss Sealer Gel but what you want to do is make sure you cover the paint work and then you’re going to pop that into the lamp for one minute so now that’s completely cured you can see how gorgeous and shiny that is really simple easy design, but looks great on that white nail with the black art so I’m just going to finish that off with some cuticle oil give that a rub all the way round and that’s your star nail completely finished, bit gorgeous that is
