DIY: Nail Art Tutorial – Blue Me Away

Nail Polish Bottles
Here’s a basic 5 step DIY nail tutorial. For this nail tutorial, I used a base coat, top coat, Essie’s After School Boy Blazer, Sally Hansen’s Sugar Fix and Splattered.
Base Coat
For the base coat, I usually use China Glaze’s Strong Adhesion Base Coat.
Apply Base
Step 1: Apply a thin layer of the base coat on all of your nails and wait for it to dry.
After School Boy Blazer
Next, I used Essie’s After School Boy Blazer. [You can use any other dark blues that you have.]
Apply Blue
Step 2: Apply a layer of the blue as evenly as possible on all of your nails except the ring fingers and wait for it to dry.
Once the first layer is dry, I use Sally Hansen’s Color Frenzy in 320 Splattered.
Apply Splattered
Step 3: Next apply a layer of Splattered onto your nails.
Sugar Fix
This step is for variation in the design. While waiting for the nail polish on the rest of the nails to dry, I used Sally Hansen’s Sugar Coat in 200 Sugar Fix.
Apply White
Step 4: I apply a thin layer of Sugar Fix to my ring finger, wait for it to dry then apply a second layer. If you don’t want an accent finger in your design, you can just apply the blue and then Splattered like the rest of the fingers.
Top Coat
The final step is the top coat. I used Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat. [I couldn’t find my usual top coat at this point of time.]
Apply Top
Step 5: Apply a layer of the top coat on all nails except your accent finger.
TADA. Here’s what the end results should look like. I love layering polishes as the end result tends to look more complicated than it actually is.
