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.
For the base coat, I usually use China Glaze’s Strong Adhesion Base Coat.
Step 1: Apply a thin layer of the base coat on all of your nails and wait for it to dry.
Next, I used Essie’s After School Boy Blazer. [You can use any other dark blues that you have.]
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.
Step 3: Next apply a layer of Splattered onto your nails.
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.
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.
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.]
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.
