Tutorial: Cinco De Mayo Nails

Hi Friends, I created a step-by-step tutorial for you all for the colorful Cinco De Mayo nail art from my last post.

For this nail art you would need -
1. Nail Polishes.
2. Stripping Tape.
3. Top Coat.
4. Base Coat.
5. Scissors.
6. Dotting Tool.
7. Thin Nail Art Brush.

Step 1. To start, first paint your nails with a base coat to protect your nails.

Step 2. When the base coat is dry, on top of it paint your nails with a base polish. I used Formula X's Dainty White polish. Make sure you polish dries completely, before you attempt step 3.

Step 3. Cut the stripping tape using scissors into multiple stripes and stick them on the nail as shown in the picture below. Make sure they are sticking to the nail and are not loose.

Step 4. Color the red and green blocks as shown below. I used Dior's Rouge for Red and Revlon's Emerald City for Green.

Step 5. Now slowly remove the tape around green and red blocks.

Step 6. In between the remaining tape block, create red chevron or zig-zag pattern using a thing nail art brush.

Step 7. Fill red on one side of chevron and on the top of the nail add yellow nail polish. I used Zoya's Darcy for yellow.

Step 8. Remove all the remaining tape.

Step 9. Add green dots near the chevron design as shown below.

Step 10. Seal the design with your favorite top coat. I used Formula X's top coat.
