So I have tried to include all colors in my nail art. Also there is a special reason I have included “Gold”. At one point in time we were called “Sone Ki Chidiya” meaning “Golden Bird”. So I did not want that to be missed out. Yes, I am having that patriotic wave run down me as I explain you all this.

Anyways, back to the nail art.

Items Needed:

  • White Nail paint
  • Green, Blue, Orange and Golden Acrylic Paint
  • Dotting tool or a Toothpick
  • Fan Brush

Method :

  • Paint all your nails white and let them dry.
  • Using a fan brush pick up the acrylic paints an start from left wall of your nails. Pull the brush till you get the desired look. Repeat if needed.
  • Do the above process for all three nails with respective colors.
  • Draw a rough outline with golden on each nail.
  • Using a dotting tool pick up some golden acrylic color to draw the pattern on my forefinger. Fill in dots with the colors a shown.
  • Finish up with a top coat.

Wasn’t that easy?? Using a fan brush gives very random asymmetrical which makes it fun and easy. I think I will do a pictorial next time I use a fan brush.

Goodnight for now, before my heads falls down on my laptop. He he…I bet you don’t want that 😛 So buy and Happy Independence Day!!!!
