Nail Art How-To From Pattern Stamps To Glitter Pens
Freehand Abstract Leopard
The world of freehand art is a little daunting for some, but we love the WAH Nails pens for Models Own, which come in five great colours and make the perfect leopard print mani a breeze. Simply paint the nail your desired base colour, and once dry dot on a contrasting polish in a random pattern. Complete with purposefully messy half-done outlines and mini splotches from your nail art pen, and seal with a top coat to smooth out bumps.
If you’re reluctant to take the plunge with a full-on nail art look, dip into the trend by applying nail art to just one nail on each hand (the ring finger always looks classy, and the thumb looks fun and spunky) for an accent look.
Quick nail art fixes can also be achieved with blinged-up false nails, such as those by Nazila London, and nail wraps from Nail Rock and Sally Hansen. Applied with care, these methods can look really professional and expensive.
Nail art is a fun way of expressing your personality and creativity, and we say if it’s good enough for Gaga, it’s certainly good enough for us.
