Playing with colors is my hobby, so if you are also like me then you should consider this idea. The most common design, girls wear in routine, is French tip. But it is time to add something uncommon yet interesting into this design.Grab your favorite nail colors. It’s good to pick vibrant colors such as teal, grass green, lemon, red, magenta and purple since we are going to add glam effect into French manicure. Black is a must in this design since you need to create the clear division.

How to do:

  • Apply base coat. Use white nail polish to define beauty of your nail tip. In simple words, you need to do the basic French manicure.
  • Grab black nail marker and draw a line just below white nail tips. In case you don’t have nail marker then it is good to use nail art brushes. You need to do the same for all nails.
  • Dip thin nail art brush into red color and then draw a line just beneath the black marker line. You are done with thumb.
  • Define color beauty of other nails by changing the nail paint but doing the same i.e. drawing a line just beneath black division line.
  • Don’t forget to seal this smashing design with a top coat.

3.Red nail art writing

  • At the end, you need to apply top coat.

Neon Colors make it easy for you to do some art which is not only beautiful but also crystal clear. Animal paint is one of my favorite nail designing task as it always look super-amazing. No matter what color you choose for base, try to pick black for animal body design.

How to Do:

  • Draw first line from left to right and leave some space on right side. Draw next line from left to right and leave some space at left side. Do the same for other lines.
  • When black nail paint is dry then give your animal beautiful nails design a final touch with a top coat.
