Jigsaw Nail Art Tutorial

Sunday, 1 September 2013

Hello!  I've got another little tutorial for you today!  Recently I have been working Salons Direct to create some nail art and tutorials using China Glaze nail polish and I thought I'd show you how to do a jigsaw pattern on your nails.  These are pretty easy to do and you can use literally any colour combination.

So, for this manicure you will need the following:
So, start by painting your nails with a white base colour.  Let this dry completely.



Next, using sellotape, place a strip of sellotape halfway down across your nail.

Get your first colour, and paint this down one side of your nail.

Take your second colour and paint this down the other side of your nail.  If you do this fairly quickly it's quite easy to get a straight line.

Next, remove your sellotape.  Ideally it's best if you do one nail at a time with both colours, and quickly rip the sellotape off before it's dried, if not, just make sure the polish is dry before you remove the sellotape; whatever works best really.

Get your third colour, and carefully paint down one side of the tip of your nail.

Paint your final colour down the other side of your nail.

Now, take a large dotting tool, and place a large dot of your bottom left colour, into your bottom right colour.

Continue this process all the way around your nails.

Once you've put all your dots in place, let this dry, and then apply a top coat.
