Hi everyone, I hope we are all doing well and are looking forward to a great weekend.

So I know I post some DIY makeup tips every friday but this time, I shall be posting some really useful and fun tips for nail art. I hope you like the tips; let me know what you think:

1. I’m really bad at painting my own nails and I needed this tip badly. Here is a step by step picture tutorial on how to paint your nails properly with minimal smudging.image

2. To create the most adorable little heart shapes on your nails, use a toothpick as shown in the picture below.image

3. This tip is the one I’m most excited about and can’t wait to try. I just got my nails done on Wednesday so i have to wait a while but if you try it, let us know how effective it is. To create a matte nail polish, mix topcoat and eyeshadow of the color you’d like.image

4. To create a little polka dot pattern on your nails, you can use band aids on your nails and paint over the holes as shown in the picture below.image

5. To create larger polka dots on your nails, you can use a bobby pin; just dip the ball end of the pin in polish and create the dot πŸ™‚image

  1. I will try out the matte and let you know

  2. Interesting.. Whats that stick you used for the heart shape?

    The Matte process imagines really messy in my head..as in getting off the eyeshadow .. mixing et al.

    Really interesting post, thankfully I’m not bad with painting my own nails.


    1. It’s a toothpick.. For the heart shape. That’s actually a good point. I’ll try it out and post a way to get it off easily. I’m pretty sure dissolver would do the trick; it gets rid of nail polish so easily. Thank you for reading πŸ™‚

  3. Nice! Will be trying out the heart shaped one. I only do my nails myself and like to experiment once in a while

  4. Oh i love! My nails are just growing for the first time ever so I am excited to try these out. Especially painting my nails without them looking a mess, thats such a helpful tip for me. Thanks boo, awesome post!

    1. Yaaay. I could never get my nails to grow long; they always break off so do it for us short-nailed people lol. Thank you for reading. You can subscribe so you don’t miss a thing. Xo

  5. Oooh nice!
    TGC may be the thing to finally finally make a babe out of me LOL. Beauty tricks look complicated but this, this I can do. And the previous DIY post too. Good work ^_^

    1. Hahaha oh please you are a babe. Thank you very much ☺️
