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.

Splattered

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.

Final

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.
