Busy? Try some of these quick and easy nail art tips if you’re short on time.
If you’re like most nail art-aholics, you’re probably pretty busy. Whether you’re in school full time, working full time, or squeezing in some much needed exercise at your favourite gym, it’s hard to find some time to perfect your favourite nail designs. If you’re always on the go, but want to have fabulous looking nails while running around, we’ve got some quick and easy nail art designs that look flawless in just a short period of time.
For a look that’s as simple as it is flawless, the mermaid scales are a big hit for busy gals. This stunning design only requires a handful of nail art tools too. Start by applying a white base coat. Using a clear nail stamper, apply three blended strips of nail polish in your favourite colours. We love blue, green and gold. Now this is where it may get a little messy. If you’re pressed for time, use PROtect cuticle protector on the skin around the nail for a quick and easy clean up. Stamp your strips of colours across your fingernail. Once dry, load up a scale stamping plate with white polish and stamp across the entire fingernail. For perfect placement, don’t forget to use your Clear Jelly Stamper. Now peel back the layer of PROtect, and Voila – beautiful mermaid scales right on your fingertips.
Earthy Yet Elegant
For a look totally on point with nature, begin by painting your fingertips with an earthy base colour. We love mothy greens, oranges, and browns. Once dry, drip a couple of randomly placed drops of complimentary colours directly to your Clear Jelly Stamper. When you stamp your fingernail, you’ll get an interesting blend of nail polish on your tips. The marbled effect left behind looks amazing on its own (if you’re out of time) or it can double as the perfect backdrop to a nature-themed design. This easy nail art design looks super complex even though it’s surprisingly simple.
This easy nail art look is so versatile, and can be worn for any type of event. Start with a base coat, and wait until it’s dry. If you’re really in a hurry, you can just skip the base coat altogether for a more minimalistic appearance. Using Scotch tape, lay a strip across your fingernail in whatever direction you choose then apply a secondary nail polish colour. You can create slants, lines, triangles, or squares. The options are endless. If you can’t find a roll of tape or prefer to play with the tools in your professional nail art kit, a silicone brush set is the perfect tool for drawing lines freehand. To add a touch of flair if you find yourself with a few extra minutes, grab your nail art stamper and add some strategically placed images. Glittery snowflakes are the perfect addition for cool, wintery days.
Plaid in All the Right Places
Just in time for sweater weather, a plaid nail design that’s easy to do can get you out of a drab nail design funk in no time. Keep it simple or get as complex as you have time for. All you need to do is apply a nail colour to use as a basecoat, and then stamp your nails with a plaid nail stamping plate. We like this one: perfectly plaid. For a fun twist, try stamping just one fingernail and leave the rest naked. Stamping just one nail is a great way to save time if you’re on your way out the door.
