This Monday we’re going to share a really easy stamping technique with you that creates an abstract, colourful pattern. The only tool you’ll need is a drinking straw!
Here’s what we’re going for:
What you’ll need:
- a straw
- white base coat
- other complimentary colours (we used a purple, teal, lime green and hot pink)
- a quick dry top coat
Start with a light base colour on your nails. We used a pearly white but you can use any light colour that constrasts the other colours you’ll be using.
Take one of your contrast colours and drop some onto a scrap piece of paper or some foil. Take your straw and dip it into the nail polish
Then using your straw as a stamp, simply stamp it a few times on each nail. You may have to re-dip the straw every few times you stamp it.
Continue by doing the same with another colour. You don’t have to worry about it being imperfect or messy because it’s an abstract look we’re going for!
Repeat with three or four different colours!
And there you go– an adorably colourful manicure that doesn’t take much effort. It looks so intricate that a few people have been asking if they’re actually nail appliques! Try it out!
